Kota V Ramana
Professor, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
The University of Texas Medical Branch, USA
Dr. Ramana is a Professor at Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, TX-USA. The chief objective of his investigations is to examine the involvement of cellular metabolism and oxidative stress signals in inflammation and to delineate the role of aldo-keto reductases in the inflammatory pathways. He uses various genetic, biochemical and cell biological approaches to analyze inflammatory responses regulated by cellular metabolites in various inflammatory pathologies such as sepsis, uveitis, asthma and cancer. He has published more than 95 peer reviewed articles. He is also serving as an editorial board member of 8 other journals and reviewer of several journals.
Oxidative stress signaling in Inflammation, role of polyol pathway diabetic cardiovascular complications, Biochemical and molecular interactions of lipid aldehydes with proteins and DNA and cytokine and chemokine signals in various inflammatory diseases such as diabetes, asthma, sepsis, cancer and uveitis.
