My major interests include epigenetic regulation of angiogenesis and vascular development. Angiogenesis plays a critical role in both physiological and pathological conditions. I am investigating various mechanisms involved in angiogenesis with development and aging of organisms and its role in organ development as well as cancers. My other area of investigation is involving adipose-derived stem cells and their usefulness in treating osteoarthritis, diabetes, stroke, traumatic brain injury, myocardial infarction, and spinal cord injuries following road traffic accidents.
