Dr. S. Sudha Rani


Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Research Area

I am offering courses on General Microbiology and Immunology for PG Students. I have around 30 research publications with H index of 14. My area of research is on assessing the role of ER stress, UPR and Autophagy pathways in the pathogenesis of degenerative diseases like T2DM, Parkinson’s disease etc. along with evaluation of therapeutic potential of plant compounds and nanoparticles using in vitro and in vivo disease models. My previous work experiences in VCRC Pondicherry, Dept. of Biotechnology, Pondicherry University, Molecular Connections & Bio-base Databases Pvt Ltd., Bangalore have empowered me to enhance my teaching and research skills.
