Dr. Anand Iyer joined the School of Pharmacy faculty at Hampton University in May of 2009. Dr. Iyer is the course coordinator for Research Methods (PHA 531) and teaches in Anatomy & Physiology (PHA 321) and several modules of Drug & Disease Management (DDM). Dr. Iyer has interests in various research fields where he incorporates a combinatorial approach involving both molecular biology and structural bioinformatics techniques, and has published his work in several prominent scientific journals.
Elucidate molecular mechanisms in cancer progression, study the role of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species and establish developmental models of malignant transformation.
Study the crosstalk between various angiogenic mediators that may play a critical role in driving angiogenesis in various models, including fibrogenesis and carcinogenesis.
Assess the toxicological potential of single- and multi-walled carbon nanoparticles and elucidate causalities of nanoparticle pathogenesis in various disease states.
Assess the anti-tumor potential of various digitoxin analogues and test their efficacy in in vivo models.
Elucidate the mechanisms of cancer progression and metastasis as mediated by cancer stem cells, and develop methods to target them.
