Reasearch Interests

Dr. Sharma’s research looks at the impact of exercise and nutrition on the molecular levels of bone metabolism, a complex sequence of bone turnover, and bone formation. She has also investigated the novel markers such as sclerostin, DKK-1, RANKL, and Irisin in response to exercise via signaling cascades. Dr. Sharma’s research interest further looks at the disease prevention aspect of osteoporosis/sarcopenia with exercise performance. She has also collaborated with other researchers and produced several peer-reviewed publications. She also worked as a reviewer for more than 10+ peer-reviewed journals.
