Kristiana Amirova, MSc
The main area of Kristiana’s research interests is NMR-based metabolomics, bioactivity of plant-derived secondary metabolites, plant genetic transformation (e.g., Agrobacterium-mediated).
Kristiana is also interested in studying natural plant derived inducers or inhibitors of KEAP1/Nrf2 pathway that influence the Nrf2-ARE axis in osteoarthritis and inflammation.
