My research work focuses on understanding the factors modulating the regeneration potential of plant cells and tissues.  

Our team have more recently been trying to develop efficient strategies for exploiting secondary metabolites from medicinal plants using in vitro studies. We hope to contribute to the understanding of the role and effects of different plant growth regulators, adjuvants and elicitors on pant regeneration, metabolism and phytochemistry.
