My current research focus on investigating 'Herbal phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitors as therapeutics for managing Alzheimer’s disease (AD)'. PDEs inhibitors are agents that have been shown to improve memory performance in AD disease models by regulating signalling pathways in the brain. The anticipated outcomes for my research is to identify lead candidates that can be used for designing phytomedicines for managing AD.
