Our research focus is to screen molecules with anti-cancer properties and understand their mode of action with respect to cell death. Many cancer cells are apoptosis resistant; we are trying to target them by an alternative cell death pathway known as “paraptosis” or cytoplasmic vacuolation mediated cell death.We are also interested in the studies of protein homeostasis and cell death in case of neuronal and pancreatic cells.
