EDUCATION: Ph.D. (Chemistry/Biochemistry), Bangalore University, Bangalore, India; Postdoctoral training at University of Minnesota, USA.
RESEARCH INTERESTS: Main areas of my research interests include cancer chemotherapy (drug resistance and drug metabolism), bioenergy, environmental toxicology, and forensic toxicology. Broadly stated the following are the four major areas of research being undertaken in my laboratory.
  • Understanding the role of aldehyde dehydrogenases in detoxification/toxification of aldehydes (toxicological and forensic interest) and aldehyde intermediates of anticancer drugs and environmental contaminants.
  • Identifying the molecular basis for the resistance to selective anticancer drugs, e.g., cyclophosphamide, mafosfamide, flavopiridol, UCN-01, and ottelione A and its analogues.
  • Genetic polymorphisms and their relevance to cancer chemotherapy, carcinogenesis and cancer chemoprevention; and environmental susceptibility.
  • Conversion of lignocellulosic biomass to biofuels (ethanol and butanol) and value added products.
