RESEARCH TOPIC : Free radicals and pathological changes

RATIONAL AND RESEARCH METHODOLOGY : An imbalance between radicals and anti-radicals capacity has been proposed
to play an important role in the progression of pathological changes. Oxidative stress is considered a major contributor
to various pathologies including aging and cancers. The research is on the field of antioxidants and natural products
prevent pathological changes of aging and cancers.

 
  SCOPE OF RESEARCH :

- Anti-oxidants of natural products
- Oxidative stress and cancer
- Anti-melanogenesis
