Developed animal model of malnutrition

Demonstrated that the malnutrition can be successfully overcame by especially reconstituted vegetable protein-rich diet

Showed that the glycolytic pathway plays important role in diabetics as well as in senile cataract formation

His studies on urolithiasis and schizophrenia have attracted international recognition
