Research Focus

• Our research scopes have no boundaries and its extremely diverse. Thus students get exposure to do whatever they want and have their own liberty to explore anything in the field of chemical biology. • Therefore hardcore organic synthesis can smoothly run parallel with Medicinal chemistry, nano-material chemistry, Chemosensor etc.

  2. Synthesis of natural products and natural products based hybrid scaffolds and its application in therapeutics.
  3. C-H Activation reaction to construct novel Fused heterocycles 
  4. Design and synthesis of small peptide/peptidomimetics and study their biological/biophysical properties.
  5. Design, synthesis, biophysical and biological efficacy studies of different (peptidic/ nonpeptidic nano-materials.
  6. Nanoparticle based drug delivery system using anticancer drugs and synthesized bioactive molecules in the lab.
  7. Novel Ligand design & ion-sensing (Ref: 1), Molecule sensing (Hydrazine), Organelle Sensing (Lysosome, Mitochondria) etc.
