About Cell Biology

Biomedical Engineering and Cell Biology Labs was set up at the Amritapuri campus of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham with the aim to develop Low cost Biomedical Devices and to diagnostics for the management of Diabetes & Identify Natural Product Lead molecules as Potential Modulators and Elucidation of Molecular Mechanisms involved in Impaired Wound Healing in Diabetes. Our current research focuses to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying the regulation of Matrix Metalloproteinases and oncogenic signalling systems by Natural Products.



Our current research focuses on the Development of Low cost Biomedical Devices and Diagnostics for the management of Diabetes & Identification of Natural Product Lead molecules as Potential Modulators and Elucidation of Molecular Mechanisms Involved in Impaired Wound Healing in Diabetes.Our lab is currently focused on the identification and characterization of Natural Product Lead molecules and understanding their role in Regulating Matrix Metalloproteinases and oncogenic signaling systems, Modulating the complex processes involved in wound healing, Pathogenesis and virulence with specific emphasis on Quorum Sensing, Cardio-protection to enable their use in combination therapies and Regulating Inflammasomes and the inflammatory signaling cascades in disease states.
