Research Interests:

  • Biochemical and Biophysical studies involving the interaction of different forms of DNA (double, triple and quadruplex forms) with small molecules, metals and macromolecules.
  • Studies to understand the mechanism of modified, novel organic and inorganic complexes in enhancing anti-cancer/pro-apoptotic activity among cancer cells and reduce cancer cell proliferation both under in vitro and in vivo conditions,
  • Research activity that brings the industry and academics together.
