The aim of my work is to evaluate how mind body interventions such as yoga and meditation influence pro-inflammatory status of hypercholesterolemic individuals. I am also involved in investigating the genetic susceptibility and health risk of the population to metabolic syndromes, cardiovascular diseases, cancer and inflammatory conditions based on their Ayurvedic Prakriti types by using exome sequencing approach.
