Personal Statement

I have been a lecturer in Physiology Department since 2000 and I am involved in the teaching of Physiology students and other students from Medical and Basic Medical departments like MBBS, BDS, Physiotherapy, Nursing Sciences, Human Nutrition, Pharmacy and Biochemistry, at all levels. I am also involved in counseling and general welfare of students, as part of my duties as the sub-dean (B.Sc. programmes) of my faculty. I have supervised many B.Sc. and some M.Sc. students in the department. Also, I’m involved in the pre-training of the medical/dental students and supervision of laboratory research by the B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D students in Physiology.

My area of research is in the Gastrointestinal disaeases and Inflammation. My interest has been the discovery of natural products and seconday metabolites for the  amelioration of peptic ulcers and gastrointestinal inflammation. Also, Pain and Inflammation, which are indices of most GIT disorders, are part of my research.
