Research Interests


  • Structure-Function Studies on naturally occurring antimicrobial peptides and design of their novel analogs with higher therapeutic potential.
  • Design of totally novel peptides with cell-selective activity and investigation on their biological activity against different microorganisms.
  • Understanding the amino acid sequence requirement for the anti-endotoxin properties of peptides and design of novel peptides with anti-endotoxin properties.
  • Synthetic peptide model to understand the structure-function relationships of membrane-associated proteins
  • Identification and characterization of important segments from proteins, involved with pathogenesis of diseases.
