Dr. A. Hannah Rachel Vasanthi

Research Area

As a woman in education and research I like to teach basic sciences and motivate students and research scholars for applied research and inculcate moral values too. Aiming at translation research, my work involves medicinal plants, marine algae and AYUSH drugs for metabolic and degenerative disorders with major grants from various funding agencies. My networking for collaborative research and leadership skills is presently nurturing entrepreneurial activities among students and scholars to make them self-reliant through their innovative ideas. I believe that sincerity and hard work will take us to greater heights with the blessings of the Almighty.
