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. We are interested in developing anti-infective drug molecules against SARS-CoV-2.


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.
