Personal profile


I am a researcher in the field of Epigenetics in diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. My latest work identified the role of exercise induced Epigenetic changes associated with reduced oxidative damage and improved micro vascular phenotype in the elderly. My current interest is to understanding the role of epigenetic mechanisms in diabetes associated atherosclerosis.
