Synopsis

I have studied the interactions between hormones, oxidative stress indices and cytokines in tubal infertility, role of trace elements and micronutrients in pathology of type 2 diabetes, impact of HIV infection, malaria, diabetes, lifestyle factors and occupational exposures to some environmental chemicals on biomarkers of oxidative stress. My current research focus is on investigation of the role of infection, nutrition, environmental factors, genetic susceptibility and immunologic resistance to the development of cancers in humans. I aim to determine the genotoxicity of environmental exposure to some common chemicals, their biological mechanisms of carcinogenesis and how best to implement prevention. These will be achieved through individual initiation, multidisciplinary approach and international collaboration.
