Disease especially biomarker discovery and Drug Development. My group uses mass
spectrometry based high throughput quantitative proteomics, natural product chemistry, cell
biology, animal model, stem cell, and modern biology approach to find the target, to develop
novel drugs and elucidate its mode of action against cancer and other metabolic disorders such as
diabetes. Cancer is a hyperplastic condition that leads to uncontrolled proliferation, invasion,
metastasis, dysregulation of apoptosis and cell cycle. Cancer is the second leading cause of
worldwide human mortality after cardiovascular diseases. We are investigating the efficacy of
various natural and synthetic metabolites on melanoma, retinoblastoma, leukaemia, and lung
cancer using in vitro and in vivo method including animal model. Further, investigating the
molecular basis for Cell adhesion, AKT signalling and tyrosine kinase associated cancer
progression and response and resistance to targeted therapy in these cancers is in progress in my
