Current Research Interest

1.   Reproductive endocrinology with special reference to pathophysiologic entities like premature ovarian failure, endometriosis, polycystic ovarian disease, etc. This project involves development of suitable animal models and elucidation of basic regulatory mechanisms pertaining to pathogenesis of different reproductive disorders.

2.   Development of spermicidal contraceptive modalities with anti-HIV hallmark. In quest for such a conceptual spermicide, we put emphasis on plant saponins. A lead molecule has been identified that possesses potent spermicidal property and is effective at very low concentrations. We are looking forward to explore the future promise of this molecule as a spermicidal agent.
