My skillset

Cell culture tends to go well with me along with the day-to-day molecular biology techniques (qPCR, Western blot, immunofluorescence). Apart from that, I know a little bit of R programming by which I try to make my life somewhat statistically significant.

For all researchers out there, I found a scale-bar reference image you can use to put scale bars in your microscopy images.

About my work

I work in the field of muscle biology. My work mainly focuses on reversing/mitigating hyperglycemia-induced skeletal muscle atrophy using various bioactive lipid supplements. I mainly focus on arachidonic acid and its metabolite, lipoxin-A4.


  1. Mitigation of chronic glucotoxicity-mediated skeletal muscle atrophy by arachidonic acid
  2. The elusive role of myostatin signaling for muscle regeneration and maintenance of muscle and bone homeostasis
