My research area of interest includes, understanding the role of gut microbiota in diabetes and liver inflammation. My group has successfully developed an animal model for diet induced diabetes and have established that gut dysbiosis is one of the major causes for the induction and progression on insulin resistance resulting in type 2 diabetes and even obesity. I am also working on isolation, characterization of probiotic strains of gut origin from rats and fishes with the intention identification for its anti-diabetic and as a food preservative and food supplementations. Till date, I have guided six Ph. D. Students, and four more are working. I have also guided more than 75 M. Sc. Dissertation thesis and 4 B. Tech thesis. I have published around 54 international papers of repute and 40 conference papers and three books. Owing to my expertise in bacteriocin isolation and characterization, I have been appointed in the International Grant Reviewer Panel for reviewing grant proposals on Bacteriocin and Probiotic Research of Czech Science Foundation, Czech Republic. I have been conferred with Outstanding Research Researcher for 2016 by INDUS Foundation USA and Omics Publishing Group.
I have been teaching courses like cell Biology, Basic and advanced immunology, basic bioChemistry, toxicology, endocrinology and vaccinology to name a few.
I would like my students to come with an open mind and lots of questions to be addressed. I would be preferring active use of ICT tools. I do the assessment on the basis of of rubric based assessment. I do not take the formal tests but it is mostly the application based questions and knowledge assessment no mugging up business.
