Project Overview

I have always been intrigued by the environmental balance and its functioning. One of its aspects is human interference and its consequences on our bodies. My present work focuses on the implications of a widely used pyrethroid to human tissues and its possible amelioration by dietary antioxidants. We are using isolated human blood cells, cell lines and rat tissues to determine the extent of damage and modes of toxicity. At Queen’s, we aim to establish the toxicity potential of this pyrethroid on human cells and explore its molecular and systemic basis by using various toxicity, gene expression and computational analysis. This study will provide a perspective to understand the effects of these toxicants better and can help to develop new methods against several environmental pollutants.
