Member of the Editorial l Board of Inflammopharmacology  
Research Interests:
Mechanisms of cell and tissue injury in inflammatory and infectious conditions. Synergistic mechanisms among reactive oxygen and nitrogen species , proteolytic enzymes, membrane-perforating agents and cytokines on cells in vitro and in vivo. Mechanism of bacteriolysis induced by cationic peptides, cationic proteins and enzymes and by antibiotics and its regulations by polysulfates and by non-bacteriolytic antibiotics. The role of lipoteichoic acid (LTA) from Gram-positive bacteria as modulators of inflammatory processes. The role of the Tibetan plant mixtures PADMA-28 and PADMA-Q as sources for anti-oxidants, anti-proteinases, anti-cytokines and as modulators of inflammatory processes and of experimental autoimmune phenomena, such as diabetes, lupus, sepsis, septic shock and multiple organ failure. 
Research Projects:
The role of food - derived polyphenols as anti oxidant agents .
Interactions and binding of polyphenols to microbial cells  converting them to  potent anti oxidant entities
