Dr Elahi's research includes investigating the role of blood-dependent redox activity and the biology of Nitric Oxide (NO)
modulation in ischemia-reperfusion induced organ injury during extracorporeal circulation in ischemic heart disease. This has led to the
Oxidative- Nitrosative Disequilibrium Hypothesis in collaboration with his British collaborator Dr Bashir Matata (FRS-Med) from the Liverpool Heart &
Chest Hospital and University of Liverpool in United Kingdom and the invention of surrogate miniature cardiopulmonary bypass circuit.
