I am studying the implications of gene-nutrient interaction and cell to cell cross talks in the development of obesity and associated complications like insulin resistance. How the metabolic stress is translated into inflammation at the endoplasmic reticulum through ER stress. I am also studying cell to cell cross talks involved zinc homeostasis. I am also studying molecular events in host-pathogen interaction and regulatory role of nutrients for such interactions.
