Research Interests:

In the Pandey Lab, we have four major research areas of interest.

  • Oxidative Stress in Aging and Neurodegeneration.
  • Oxidative Stress in the Fibroblasts from Alzheimer’s Disease Patients.
  • Development of Single Domain Antibodies Against Pro-Apoptotic Proteins (Caspase-3 and Bax) to Block Cell Death Following Stroke.
  • Using Apoptosis Inducers as a Weapon Against Cancer.
