Dr. Yadav’s research program focuses on microbial pathogenesis and toxicogenomic research as related to environmental health and biodefense. His laboratory is involved in the following major areas of research:

1. Research on respiratory bacterial pathogens and biothreat agents for understanding the mechanisms of pathogenesis and host genetic susceptibility to pulmonary infections and disease.

2. Characterization of molecular and cellular signaling events underlying pulmonary toxicosis (mycotoxins and nanotoxicants).

3. Molecular characterization and development of fungal P450 enzyme biocatalysts for xenobiotic detoxification of environmental carcinogens and toxicants.
