Dr. Chitravanshi is one of NINJ?s most productive researchers. His scientific experience includes over 25-years in which he has studied a wide array of topics such as central control of cardiovascular and respiratory functions, identification of neurotransmitters in different cardiovascular and respiratory reflex mechanisms (e.g., baroreceptor; chemoreceptor; and cardiopulmonary reflexes), spinal control of cardiovascular and respiratory functions and neural mechanisms in hypertension using multi-disciplinary approach (microinjection, neuronal recordings, pressure microinjection on to single neurons, microiontophoresis and immunohistochemistry). He has experience in independently designing and coordinating scientific studies, protocol development, data exploration, statistical analysis, preparation of papers for publication in scientific journals and presentation for general audiences.
Ph.D., 1986, Meerut University
