Research Interests

My research interest is to investigate how aberrant arginine metabolism influences different components of tissue/tumor microenvironment, and how such a havoc leads to carcinogenesis, drug resistance and immunosuppression. I am also investigating whether normalizing arginine metabolism could boost the gut microbiome and train innate immunity to prevent breast cancer formation.
