Medicinal Chemistry


The Department of Medicinal Chemistry offers a two-year M.S. (Pharm.) Med. Chem. program since its inception in 2008. There are currently 20 seats available which are filled through NIPER-JEE conducted every year.

The Department of Medicinal Chemistry is actively involved in the drug design research programme which includes multidisciplinary research in various aspects of drug synthesis. Research in medicinal chemistry requires an in-depth knowledge of synthetic chemistry along with focus on information about drug-receptor interactions. The students pursuing M. S. (Pharm.) degree are exposed towards fundamental and practical knowledge of design and synthesis of pharmaceutically active compounds.

The faculty in the department are involved in research focus on identification of novel chemotherapeutic agents for various diseases like cancer, malaria, tuberculosis and other inflammatory diseases.

    Dr. Ritesh Singh

    Inspire Faculty

    E-Mail: riteshsingh@niperraebareli.edu.in

    Research Interest :

    a) Primary:

    1. To develop new synthetic methodologies via C-H bond functionalization for synthesis of privileged pharmacophores of current interest.
    2. Exploring (metallo)enzymes for native as well as non-native transformations via C-H bond activation by effective mutation in their structure.
    3. To design and synthesize new chiral chemical entities with significant complexity of important pharmaceutical efficacy.
    4. Very keen to explore the field of medicinal aspects of synthesized molecules,natural products (NPs) and natural product like molecules (NPLMs).
    b) Additional:
    1. Identification of hit compounds from the synthesized library through high-throughput screening (HTS) and finding the down-stream proteins responsible for the observed biological response.
    2. Developing biological tools and drugs from the above knowledge through suitable collaborations.
