Area of Interest

research on the molecular mechanisms underlying disease pathology and the role of nutrition in disease prevention. More specifically, the group is investigating into the role of deregulated apoptosis and epigenetic pathways as key molecular targets underlining the pathological basis of human disease including cancer. In addition, the group utilizes genomic approaches in an attempt to identify critical genes that act as potential biomarkers of therapeutic outcome. Furthermore, the group investigates how natural products exert a wide range of biological and pharmacological activities and thus are considered to be of great benefit in maintaining health and preventing disease development.
