Identification of dicarboxylic acids from oxidation of peroxidised omega 3 fatty acids and study on its biological efficacy
The ICMR funded proposal, aimed to identify the auto/enzymatic oxidation products of omega 3 fatty acids and purify the dicarboxylic acid formed in these reactions. The project envisage that the dicarboxylic acid possess anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties.

Effect of Desmodium gyrans DC. on reverse cholesterol transport: implication in atheroprotection
The DST funded project expected to achieve purification of molecule that augment reverse cholesterol transport that could be atheroprotective from Desmodium gyrans. In our preliminary studies D. gyrans has showed hypolipidemic efficacy with significant HDL cholesterol enhancing property.
