RESEARCH INTERESTS

Cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes constitute the major enzyme family in drug metabolism with increasing importance in pharmacogenetics. Single nucleotide polymorphism, a single base pair variation in a DNA sequence that results in amino acid substitution are important determinants of variability in drug response.  Using structural, functional and solution biophysical methods, my research interests include studying the influence of genetic polymorphisms on the activity of CYPs that leads to altered drug response and drug-drug interactions.
