Principal Scientist
Ayurgenomics:Translational Research on Ayurveda

Bhavana Prasher is interested in deciphering genomic and biological basis of the fundamental principles of Ayurveda through their integration with modern scientific methods towards development of integrated medicine and healthcare

The current areas of research include:

  • Discovery of physiological and molecular markers underlying Prakriti based stratification of health
  • Variability in environmental responsiveness at physiological & molecular level among Prakriti groups
  • Explore and validate cellular & molecular markers of Dosha & Prakriti using therapeutic interventions of Ayurveda

A. Development of novel integrative framework for Ayurgenomics research B. Prakriti based phenotypic stratification of individuals in diverse ethnic populations. C. Development of predictive model for prakriti using advanced statistical and machine learning approaches on phenotypic data from two different cohorts D. Identification of molecular differences among normal healthy individuals of predominant Prakriti types; relevant in disease predisposition and drug response E. Identification of genetic markers for hypoxia responsiveness and high altitude adaptation.
