Academic Profile

Screening of synthetic and natural products and evaluations as modulators to clinically important enzyme targets. We are interested in how enzyme activities and structure changes occur on binding to small molecules. Our focus is on novel modulators, which could be activators or inhibitors using a combination of enzyme kinetics, computational chemistry, and molecular designing.
