Project title: The role of lipid mediators in Alzheimer's disease using a mass spectrometry-based approach.
My research interest includes the use of multidisciplinary approach to study mechanisms of inflammatory diseases.  I have been using proteomics, lipidomics and immunology techniques for biomarker discovery and development for better understanding of disease progression and therapeutic intervention.


 In my present role, we are investigating the role of lipid mediators in inflammation and pro-resolution pathways in Alzheimer's disease using mass-spectrometry-based approach.

I am also interested in inflammation and immune response in different diseases.
