Dr Parvesh Singh

Singh
 
Dr Singh received his PhD in 2006 from the Guru Nanak Dev University. He has a wide range of research interests including: synthetic organic chemistry, computational chemistry, medicinal chemistry and drug discovery.

He performs synthesis of heterocyclic scaffolds possessing anti-TB, anti-malarial, anti-cancer, anti-bacterial and anti-HIV significance.

Dr Singh also uses different computational techniques to study folding characteristics of biologically active peptides/proteins, drug-receptor interactions, pharmacophore modeling and structure based drug design.
