  • MVSc in Veterinary Pharmacology (2001) from Marathwada Agriculture University ,MS (India)

Laboratory animal care and development of animal models

  • The main activity of animal facility staff is to breed and maintain the laboratory animal colonies in complete compliance with the CPCSEA and in-house animal care principles, rules, regulations and guidelines.
  • We have developed various  animal  disease  models  such  as  acute  renal  failure,  chronic  renal  failure,  myocardial infarction,experimental  autoimmune  encephalomyelitis, diabetes,  osteochondral  defect,  breast  cancer, alzheimer’s  disease,  inflammation  induced  anaemia,,  lethal  hemorrhagic  injury,  chronic  wound  excision etc for testing of various biological active molecules.

Stem cell research and therapy

  • We have isolated stem cells from various tissue sources viz.fetal kidney, fetal heart and bone marrow. We further tested their therapeutic efficacy in different animal disease models viz. acute renal failure, myocardial infarction, experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis and global heart failure.
  • We are now focusing on the development of novel methods for non viral transfection of cardiac specific transcription factors to induce cardiomyocytes from cardiac fibroblast in ischemic myocardial infraction settings.

miRNA based therapeutics for various diseases

  • We are working  to  develop  miRNA  based  therapeutics  for  acute  and  chronic  renal  failure,  and  had intramural  project  on  the  same 
  • We evaluated potential of  nanoparticles  based  delivery  of  miRNAs  for  myocardial  repair  and 
  • Recently we are interested to unveil the miRNA mediated signalling molecules that regulate the cross talk between autophagy and apoptosis after myocardial infarction

Biomedical Applications of nanotechnology

  • WE evaluated potential of bacterial cellulose based bilayered scaffolds in a rat model of osteochondral defects and showed progressive regeneration of cartilage
  • We determined anticancer activity of truncated domain of SMAR1 protein (His 5) loaded on Carbon nanospheres (CNS) in mice bearing breast tumours
  • We are now studying combination therapy of surface functionalized Lanthanum Strontium Manganese Oxide nanoparticles mediated hyperthermia along with doxorubicin for the treatment of breast cancer
