Student working on a research project.

Structure-based Discovery Of Novel Anti-cancer Agents

Studying molecular mechanisms of transcription factor mediated pathways and to discover small molecules that target specific transcription factor conformation. Design, synthesis and evaluation of inducers, substrates and inhibitors of drug metabolizing enzymes. We explore new chemical space by employing state-of-the-art Omics guided structure determination techniques to probe protein interactome and discover new drugs against a variety of diseases including diabetes and cancer.
