He is currently involved in the study of liver adaptive responses, HCV induced specific gene expression and regulation during insulin resistance, hepatic steatosis and carbon based nano-sensor development. He is the recipient of over 28 international R & D grants funded from NIH USA, American Liver Foundation, Colorado League of Cancer, US-State Dept, Bio-Safety Engagement Program of US, Pasteur Institute of France, Higher Education Commission, Ministry of Science and Technology Science Foundation of Pakistan. All these grants were funded to carry out work on Transposable Elements, Liver Gene Regulation and Human Viruses such as HSV-1, HCMV, DEN, EBV, HEV, HBV and HCV.
