Research Interests


Aging increases the risk of diseases such as cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke, and many more. We employ a multifaceted array of experimental models of aging to establish the cellular and biochemical changes that occur during aging. We focus on elucidating the cellular and biochemical signaling mechanisms that lead to neuronal degeneration and brain aging. We also focus on developing anti-aging strategies by using engineered extracellular vesicles.

On-Going Projects

  • Investigating the effect of intermittent fasting on neurogenesis and elucidating its cellular and molecular mechanisms

  • Investigating the effect of intermittent fasting on ischemic stroke and elucidating its cellular and molecular mechanisms

  • Developing anti-aging strategies via EV-based cellular reprogramming
