Our field of research interest is 'Yoga, Heart and Vascular Physiology'. Our "Laboratory for Advanced Research in Yoga and Vascular Physiology (Yoga-VPRL)" is currently investigating the effect of Yoga based cardiac rehabilitation program on endothelial function (including related genes expression and epigenetics), arterial stiffness and oxidative stress in patients with heart and vascular diseases, with an aim to explore the underlying molecular mechanism of yoga on heart and vascular health.

These clinical trials will also help in identifying the molecules associated with better clinical outcomes, which can be targeted for therapy. We are also working on cardiovascular disease prevention, vascular aging and attempting on effective approaches for reducing arterial stiffness.
