  Biography :

The main idea is connected with a balance in the activity between oncogenes and tumor-suppressor genes, but also between the protein products of both gene types, on cellular and organism levels, both in vitro and in vivo. In this aspect, the main goal is directed to design of maximally safe experimental models for providing, on the one hand, of active tumor-suppressor genes for prevention of eventual malignant transformations, and, on the other hand, of active oncogenes for prevention of early aging and death. Also, adequate cell and/or humoral immune response against side effects, both in vitro and in vivo, should be generated, mainly by the protein products of the oncogenes in their role of active antigens. For gene transfer in laboratory-cultivated normal and malignant cells, as well as in single-cell yeast and bacteria strains, previously designed recombinant gene/DNA constructs, containing the respective genes of interest, but also, on the other hand, appropriate siRNAs for RNA-interference to specific regions of the respective target genes, are necessary. Subsequent investigations on the respective proteins, as well as protein-protein, protein-DNA, protein-RNA, RNA-RNA, RNA-DNA, DNA-DNA, etc. inter-molecular interactions, on both extra-and intra-cellular levels, should also be performed.

  Research Interest :

Dairy Processing and technology: In the area of dairy food processing, recent work in my laboratory has focused on: 1. Viability and stability of probiotic cultures in traditional and non-traditional food products; and 2. Impact of ingredients on quality of Greek yogurt. Dairy foods have served as the traditional vehicle of delivery for probiotic cultures; however, viability is still a major concern. To address this concern, our research group developed a new delivery system for probiotic cultures. Results obtained from this research could thus provide a new technology for producing dairy products with high viable probiotic cultures. We are also interested in the quality and consumer acceptability of Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt becomes very popular dairy products. We are currently looking into the impact of different functional ingredients on the quality of Greek yogurt and acid whey production. Several gums and proteins not also positively alter the texture of Greek yogurt but also the viability of probiotics and reduce the quantity of acid whey which is now considered as environmental hazards. Food Bioprocess Technology: I have been working with the Department of Bio-system Engineering on the use of bioreactor for the production of food grade products such as organic acids, antimicrobial compounds, amino acids and vitamins using lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria. Food Fermentation and Biotechnology: I am mainly interested in the impact of probiotic on human health. I would like to use proteomic approach to understand the global changes in protein expression of bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus. Our initial observation has shown that these cultures induce a number of proteins when exposed to different growth conditions that have major impact on their functionality as probiotics. This approach would help to better understand how probiotic cultures as functional foods could influence the gut health and eventually human health. Food Safety and Microbiology: I have been interested in methods to control, prevent or eliminate pathogenic bacteria associated with food products. I have been interested in developing a research program that centers in the contribution of microorganisms to the safety and quality of food. Research is underway to evaluate the effectiveness of non-thermal process such as ozone in combination with natural ingredients such as organic acids and antioxidants to improve the microbiological quality and reduce the risk of foodborne pathogens in fresh produce. My ultimate goal of my research program is to improve the quality, nutritional values and safety of food products. Our recent reviews (2) in Food Control (2010-2014) dealing with natural antimicrobials are considered as the most down loaded and most cited.

Bacteriophage therapy : Bacteriophages or "phages" are viruses that invade bacterial cells and, in the case of lytic phages, disrupt bacterial metabolism and cause the bacterium to lyse [destruct]. Phage Therapy is the therapeutic use of lytic bacteriophages to treat pathogenic bacterial infections. We are interested in isolation of bacteriophages from various sources (such as e.g. soil, river, springs, waste water , animal and animal waste) against various multi-drug resistant bacteria ( such Escherichia coli , Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella speeses , Listeria, monocytogenes, Campylobacter, Shigella dysenteriae, Kliebsilla pneumonia, Enterobacter cloacae ) and studying various characteristics of such phages having a key role in phage therapy. These phages are characterized for its various characteristics such as Host range, One step growth (burst size and latent time), Heat stability, pH stability, Calcium/Magnesium on effect on phage adsorption to host, Phage morphology by transmission electron microscopy, Phage genome isolation/ sequencing and proteins Analysis. Formulation of different potencies of phages and studying their deleterious effect on their respective host bacterial strains in planktonic forms (liquid culture) at specific temperature and pH. And finally formation of phage cocktail (combination of different phages) to avoid bacterial resistance and studying their deleterious effect on targeted bacterial strains at specific temperature and pH. Biofilm control using Bacteriophages: Biofilm is an association of micro-organisms in which microbial cells adhere to each other on a living or non-living surfaces within a self-produced matrix of extracellular polymeric substance. Bacterial biofilm is infectious in nature and can results in nosocomial infections. According to National Institutes of Health (NIH) about about 65% of all microbial infections, and 80% of all chronic infections are associated with biofilms. Nearly all (99.9%) of micro-organisms have the ability to form biofilm on a wide range of surfaces i.e. biological and inertsurfaces. When micro-organisms bind to a surface, they produce extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) and form biofilm. Biofilm posing a great problem for public health due to its resistant nature to antibiotics and disease associated with indwelling medical devices. We are also interested in studying various bacterial strains tendency for biofilm formation on various material surfaces ( such as 96- ell plates, petriplates, plastics, rubbers, stainless steel plates and test tubes and also to treat /control such types of biofilms using host specific bacteriophages and phage cocktails. Food Bio-safty: Food borne illness of microbial origin continues to be a serious food safety problem worldwide. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has estimated1 that food borne pathogens cause approximately 76 million illnesses and 5,000 deaths each year in the United States alone. At the present time, the leading causes of death due to food borne bacterial pathogens are Listeria and Salmonella, followed closely by other food borne pathogens such as Escherichia coli (E. coli O157:H7, in particular) and Campylobacter jejunii. Bacteriophages may provide a natural, non-toxic, safe, and effective means for significantly reducing or eliminating contamination of foods with specific pathogenic bacteria, thereby eliminating the risk, or significantly reducing the magnitude and severity, of food borne illness caused by the consumption of foods contaminated with those bacteria. We are also involved in isolation of bacteriophages against bacteria causing food spoilage and food born infections. In this concern we are focusing on Listeria, Salmonella, Escherichia coli (E. coli O157:H7, in particular) and Campylobacter jejunii. Bacterial antibiotic resistance: Antibiotic resistance is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. New resistance mechanisms are emerging and spreading globally, threatening our ability to treat common infectious diseases. A growing list of infections – such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, blood poisoning and gonorrhoea – are becoming harder, and sometimes impossible, to treat as antibiotics become less effective. Without effective antimicrobials for prevention and treatment of infections, medical procedures such as organ transplantation, cancer chemotherapy, diabetes management and major surgery become very high risk. Antimicrobial resistance increases the cost of health care with lengthier stays in hospitals and more intensive care required. Antimicrobial resistance is putting the gains of the Millennium Development Goals at risk and endangers achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. We are interested in studying drug resistance in different bacterial isolates isolated from hospitals such as Escherichia coli , Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Streptococcus pneumonia, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella species , Shigella dysenteriae, Kliebsilla pneumonia, Enterobacter cloaca and Acenetobacter. We are focusing on molecular mechanisms of antibiotics resistance and also other factors which contribute to resistance in bacteria.
