Area of Research Interests
Histological, histochemical and ultrastructural studies :
Histomporphochemical studies, ultrastructural details and histoenzymic
localization of different enzymes of phosphatases, oxidoreductases and
esterases are being conducted in different organs of animals
particularly buffalo and birds.Development anatomy :Histogenesis and
morphogenesis of the organs of buffalo like male and female reproductive
systems has been carried out. Reproductive biology : A study on buffalo
ovarian follicular dynamics is being conducted. In this aspect a
seasonal variation in the distribution of preantral, antral and atretic
follicles has been studied.
