About Profile:

Research Experience
  1. My research program is on isolation and characterization of parasitic antigens having diagnostic and protective potential. Longitudinal follow up subjects living in filariae endemic region and their immunological evaluation.
  2. The other additional areas include effect of maternal infection on neonatal immune responses in parasitic diseases.
