Areas of Research:

Computer Aided Drug Design (CADD) along with multi-dimensional NMR, synthesis/process development of new or existing drugs, metabolic studies on drug and accessing diversity in the population for metabolizing drugs form the few core strengths of this department. Secondary structure determination of biopeptides by 2D/3D–NMR and molecular dynamics stimulation, homology modeling of critical enzymes involved in the metabolism of several microbes, 3D-QSAR, transition state calculations of chemical reactions by ab initio and semi-empirical methods are being investigated. State of the art Silicon Graphics Workstations and a big computer cluster with software from Accelrys (USA), Tripos Inc (USA) and Schrodinger Inc. (USA) are used for the execution of these studies. Other instruments include ultraviolet-visible spectrophotometers, FT-IR., HPLCs, GLC, Flash chromatography, digital polarimeter etc. These instruments help both in the synthetic as well as in biotransformation studies. As far as synthesis is concern novel methods like parallel synthesis and microwave are being used and explored using sophisticated instruments. Some of the clients for the department’s expertise include AstraZeneca Research Foundation, Bristal Mayer Squib, Biocon Ltd., Alchemy Research Centre, Ciba Speciality Chemicals Ltd., Unichem Labs. etc.
