I am currently interested working in the area of colitis associated cancer (CAC) in murine model. Colitis associated cancer is very common nowadays in developing countries. Ulcerative Colitis (UC) is a type of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), if untreated can be a risk of developing as colitis associated cancer. Numerous studies are underway to identify drugs that control both inflammation and cell proliferation. So, I am interested in identify some novel drugs from natural source and elucidate the molecular mechanisms  involved in the process of curing colitis associated cancer. I have published several articles on the effects of a few phytochemicals in these areas of interest.
