Research Interests

1. Investigating the inhibitory potential of different plant polyphenols against SARS CoV-2 main protease using various computational and experimental studies; 2. Elucidation of drug repurposing against SARS CoV-2 main protease for COVID-19 treatment using theoretical and experimental approaches; 3. Elucidation of structure-function relationships in small heat shock proteins and its importance in human diseases (leprosy and tuberculosis) using biochemical and biophysical techniques; 4. Investigating the effect of various post-translational modifications on the eye lens crystallin proteins and their role in developing cataract formation in human lens using biophysical methods; 5. Elucidating the mechanism behind the interaction of metal complexes (anti-cancer agents) with DNA and proteins using various biochemical techniques; 6. Exploration of therapeutic potential of peptides derived from acr1 and acr3 heat shock proteins; 7. Investigating the role of different plant extracts and small molecules on the inhibition of amyloid fibrillation and their significance in preventing different amyloid diseases.
