Dr Vibha Rani is working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biotechnology, Jaypee Institute of Information Technology, Noida, India. After completing her Doctoral Studies from School of Life Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, she has continued her academic career where she teaches as well as guides doctorate students in the area of oxidative stress-induced cardiomyopathy and other development-related heart Diseases. She is an academician as well as an accomplished young scientist and has been in research for fourteen years. She has received extra-mural funding for her research work from the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Govt. of India. Her research focus is to understand the mechanism of action of phytomolecules and also to develop ideal drug molecule for prevention of cardiac diseases. She has been successfully able to communicate her research findings to various International Journals. Dr. Umesh C S Yadav is currently working as an Assistant Professor at the School of Life Sciences, Central University of Gujarat, Gandhinagar. Dr Yadav has Ph.D. degree from School of Life Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. He has over nice years of research experience, six years as postdoctoral fellow and more than three years as faculty, from the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) Galveston, Texas, USA where he performed excellent research in oxidative stress-induced inflammatory pathologies such as diabetic and cardiovascular complications, lung inflammatory diseases including asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and ocular inflammatory diseases. He has published more than 30 research articles in high impact journals including reviews and book chapters which indicate his expertise in the area of oxidative stress and inflammatory diseases and associated signalling pathways. Dr Yadav has been awarded a prestigious Ramanujan Fellowship from Department of Science and Technology (DST), New Delhi and has recently returned to his native country, India, where he has established his laboratory.
