Centre for Ageing Research

Brain, the guiding unit of our body, is the most complex and sophisticated system of all.

Mental health is the most ignored concept in our society, especially among the senior citizens who suffer from the progressive neurodegenerative condition, such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Dementia, etc., which visibly appears (late-onset) when maximum damage has already taken place.

No specific etiology, diagnosis, inaccessibility, and slow progression of mental diseases makes it one of the most challenging ailments of all other conditions.

Currently, we are trying to develop an innovative approach to cross the blood-brain barrier and deliver our drug with utmost efficacy in upregulation of nerve growth factor (decreased expression in neurodegenerative condition) and downregulation of the inflammatory cytokines like IL-1, IL-6, IL-17, IFN-ϒ, Apo-E, and TNF-α associated most commonly in neuroinflammatory condition.

We are also trying to harness the gut-brain connection for the maximal efficacy of our drug targeting. Our vision is to overcome these challenges and deliver the best to our society.
