  • Research Interests:My research interest focuses on issue that contribute to better understanding of underlying mechanisms of human diseases, their prevention, diagnosis, and for patient follow up and management as well. Therefore, and for the past several years, my research activities were focused on investigating the interplay between the inheritance pattern of specific plasma antioxidative proteins and factors contributing to oxidative stress, in different disease states. In this regard, the interplay between haptoglobin polymorphism on one hand, and iron-induced oxidative stress on the other, was investigated in subjects suffering from conditions of increased oxidative stress such as thalassemia, diabetes mellitus and renal failure. The outcome of many of these studies was novel to a certain extent, and results were published in reputable international scientific journals. Currently however, more in-depth studies are being conducted to elucidate the role of iron-induced oxidative stress in the development of atherosclerosis and cancer. In particular, the association between hepcidin and ferroportin on one hand, and the CD163 internalization and sequestration of heme iron, on the other, are under investigation.
