Thank you for visiting my website. I am a mid-career MD scientist, pediatric Allergist and Immunologist.

This website, includes my Biographical Sketch, my professional credentials and publications, to be reviewed by interested individuals. I hope you find this website informative about my career goals and accomplishments.

I am interested in continuing an academic career in USA, and further contribute to the research in children diseases. I am interested in the Brain-Immune bidirectional communication and its implications in Health and Disease. I want to contribute to the development of novel treatments geared toward modulating the host neuro-immune response in allergic, viral and neurological diseases promoting recovery and cure.

                Best regards,
