Copper is an essential nutrient and plays an important role in biological processes. Alteration in intracellular copper may play a significant role in inflammation and neurological disorders. Research focuses on understanding the changes in intracellular copper metabolism due to inflammation.

Effect of inflammation on gene expression related to copper metabolism and other related metabolic pathways. Inflammation and neurodegeneration studies in presence of metal ions can provide important information about early events in the pathology of Alzheimer’s disease.
