Primary area of interest
Primary Areas of Interest
CRISPR-Cas, Genome engineering, Functional Genomics
We focus on developing functionally enhanced CRISPR-systems for their broader and practical application in gene-editing. We employ protein-engineering and chemogenetics for precise cellular gene-editing and investigate their effect on gene-functions for prospective gene-therapy applications.
Synthetic Biology and Anti-infective Drug Development
We are working on designing synthetic biology methods for developing precision anti-infective agents. Our primary targets are multidrug-resistant pathogenic bacteria like MRSA and Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
Anticancer Drug Development
We work on chemical biology methods for developing targeted chemotherapy. We employ small-molecule probes to decipher the role of various DNA-binding proteins or transcription factors in genome stability, repair, plasticity, oncogenesis, and tumor progression.
