Dr. Vikash Kumar Dubey has completed his PhD from Banaras Hindu University, India. After his postdoctoral training at Florida State University, USA, he joined Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati. Dr. Dubey’s group is extensively involved in research using interdisciplinary approaches. Dr. Dubey’s group has used integrated computational, molecular and biochemical approaches to target various key enzymes leishmania parasite. He has identified compounds that can inhibit the biological function of key enzymes of the trypanothione metabolism with aim to develop potential anti-leishmanial drug. He has also made significant contribution in discovering novel lead candidates from Indian medicinal plants for the treatment of leishmaniasis that can be further developed in affordable drugs. Dr. Dubey has likewise made cutting edge contributions to the general knowledge of the scientific community regarding protein folding-misfolding, protein structure symmetry and the role of turn sequences in the stabilization of proteins.
