  • Research Interests: Design and synthesis of functional polymers, tuning macro and nano scale materials properties by employing controlled surface initiated radical polymerisation techniques, fabrication of functional ceramic and polymeric nanoporous hybrid membranes for various applications like fuel cells, bio-sensing, scaffolds for...
  • The research interests of our group are at the interface of organometallic chemistry and organic synthetic methodology. The main focus area of our research is the development of novel green synthetic methodologies, utilizing transition metal catalysis, for the functionalization of aromatic hydrocarbons. Our newly developed catalytic r...
  • Epigenetic mechanisms such as DNA methylation and histone modification influence gene expression either positively or negatively without introducing any changes in the DNA sequence and therefore play a pivotal role in determining the fates of different cells during development. A fertilised egg undergoes multiple divisions and di...
  • Hepatitis-C viral (HCV) infections reduce the quality of life for over 170 million people worldwide. Although HCV was discovered about 21 years ago, the available treatment options for infected individuals are limited. Despite much effort, development of vaccines and drugs against HCV has been hampered due to rapid evolution of the vi...
  • Recent advacements in instrumentation technologies have enabled researchers to make accurate measurements on biomolecular entitities participating in giving rise to complex biological phenomenon as well as in anomalies such as cancer and diabetes. Towards developing a mechanistic understanding of such complex biomo...
  • Dr. Sohail A. QureshiArchaea represent a highly diverse class of prokaryotic microorganisms capable of withstanding harsh environmental conditions such as extremes of temperature, pH, salinity and pressure; it is because of these properties that they are sometimes also referred to as “extremophiles”. Despite being prokaryo...
