Research Interests

Diseases related to environmental exposure to metals, such as arsenic, cadmium, nickel, and chromium are major public health concerns. Investigations on mechanisms of metal-induced disease and possible early detection and prevention have important public health implication. My research focuses on investigation on mechanism of metal-induced toxicity and carcinogenesis. We are studying metal-induced oxidative stress, cell migration and invasion, transformation, angiogenesis, tumorigenesis, cell cycle regulation, and apoptosis. My research interests also include mechanism-based prevention and control of environmental disease.  We are studying the antioxidant properties of various naturally occurring antioxidants and to develop them as chemopreventive agents against metal- or UV-induced carcinogenesis.
