Biography

I am Dr. ManiRam Prasad working as a Young Scientist in the Department of Zoology DDU Gorakhpur University Gorakhpur, India, sponsored by Department of Science and Technology, New Delhi- India. My research field is fish toxicology and Endocrinology and currently performing the experiment to investigate effect of botanical pesticides on vital organs, genotoxicity, blood electrolytes and hormones regulating calcium homeostasis in the fish. I have published several papers in the refereed international journals.
