Research Interests
I am interested in neuronal cell death caused by oxidative stress in hyperglycemic conditions, such as in diabetes, and in the agents that could prevent it. The other area of my research involves immune protection provided to an infant by mother's milk, specifically secretory IgA (sIgA). My lab is interested in determining the content of sIgA in milk supplied by milk banks to infants in need of breastmilk.

Keywords: Oxidative stress, hyperglycemia, curcumin, milk sIgA
