Researcher interests: Mechanisms of tissue protection by pre-conditioning, using the isolated heart and retina in the intact animal. Tissue injury following ischemia and reperfusion (heart and retina); deleterious effects of oxygen, free radicals and transition metals (iron and copper) in biological processes; natural antioxidants and their mode of protection, mechanism of toxicity of environmental pollutants (polychlorophenols). Structure and function of ternary complexes containing iron, amino acid and polyphenols
