Curriculum Vitae

I have interests in how therapeutic herbs are used locally and how they affect normal body function in health and in diseases through cell culture. Oxidative stress, present in many diseases, can be induced, and alleviated through applications of therapeutic products. I am currently studying type 2 diabetes and the effects of Kalanchoe pinnata on diabetic skeletal muscle cells.

Interests

Clinical Hematology, Therapeutic herbs and herbal health
