CURRENT INTERESTS

  • Bioprospection of indigenous flora- with special reference to Kerala (phytoecdysoids-nutraceutical,sericulture biotechnology, wound healing).
  • Value addition to unutilized / underutilized plants: (bioactives from sea buckthorn- flavonoids, ursolic acid, carotenoids, kinase inhibitors, glut4 modulators, anacardic acids).
  • Synthesis of bioactive natural products (antioxidants, antitumour, kinase inhibitors, neuroprotectants).
  • Human resource development(advanced training in phytochemistry to students, research scholars, visiting fellows).
