Research Interests
Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Discovery; Bioorganic and Bioinorganic Chemistry; Drug Delivery; Nanomedicine; Chemical Biology.

Research in our laboratory is focused on two major areas: chemistry (Organic / Inorganic / nanomaterial) and biology, at the interface of chemistry and biology. Research group aims to understand the roles of proteins that play in physiological and pathological process and to use this knowledge to identify novel therapeutic targets for the treatment of complex diseases. Goal is to develop the engineering solutions for those complex diseases and to achieve our goals we develop and apply new technologies that bridge the fields of chemistry and biology. A large variety of powerful tools are used to explore the chemistry–biology interface—a unique and exciting opportunity for students to engage in a number of existing multi-disciplinary research. Students will be exposed to a broad range of techniques in chemistry as well as biology research focused on organic, inorganic, nanomaterial and polymer synthesis, characterization tools, protein purification, gel electrophoresis, cell biology etc.
