    • The overall goal is to characterize structure and function of Cytochrome P450 systems as well as other enzymes for further application on biotechnology and medicine.
    • My research interest included also the study of certain enzymes: isolation, purification and identification of enzymes and active compounds from different organic sources using different biochemical techniques.
    • The other line of my research concerned with the biochemical study for instance, the effect of diseases on the activity of enzymes, hormones and the concentration of the biochemical components in the biological tissues, blood sera and other biological fluids focusing on the physiological relationship of the medical conditions, which are closely linked with the level of biochemical parameters in blood and other tissues.
    • Lately, the estimation of the chemical composition and trace elements in animal tissues were also knocked in our research topics, pointing on the description of analytical methods for extraction of these molecules from animal tissues and explain the important role of these molecules for general health.
