His teaching & scholarship extends to drug action mechanisms, mol & cellu toxicol, toxic & side effects of drugs and chemicals, pathophys, med micro & immuno. Dr. Ray’s research program focuses on mechanistic toxicology, ADRs, & side effects of drugs. His discoveries have provided clear understandings on the dynamic role of apoptosis & necrosis in drug-induced organ toxicity & have influenced the development of safety measures for a stunning variety of xenobiotics, phytochemicals and nutraceuticals. He is one of the front runners in exploring mechanisms of drug and chemical-induced apoptosis, necrosis & apocrosis (necraptosis) in in-vivo models. His landmark studies on the interplay of bcl-2, bcl-xl, p53, bad and bax during acetaminophen toxicity and its prevention by grape seed extract has earned worldwide citations. His peer recognitions are reflected by his election into multiple international professional organizations, such as the SOT, SFRBM, ASPET, AACP and ACN.
