CURRENT RESEARCH INTERESTS
:



My research interest is highly integrative, applying biomedical, chemical,
physiological, biotechnology and behavioral approaches to the impact of
environmental pollutants on histolog
i
cal and physiological changes in
animals
.

Also

I have some studies concern
phytochemical screening of medicinal plants and their
effects on fertility and sterility in rodents and man.
Within this fascinating and diverse
subclass, I am most interested
t
o study some
physiological (especially horm
onal)
factors, drugs that influence "social aggression" and histological alterations of
pheromone producing glands in mammals.
