Shubhandra Tripathi has obtained his Ph.D. in life sciences from CSIR-CIMAP, Lucknow. He is currently working as an Institute Postdoc, in the Department of Chemistry at IIT Kanpur with Prof. Nisanth N. Nair. During his Ph.D., he worked on the interaction study of novel compounds with tubulin, a cytoskeleton protein, as a cancer target. His area of expertise includes molecular modeling studies of biomacromolecules using all-atoms molecular dynamics simulations. He is currently working on the enhanced sampling method of Temperature Accelerate Sliced Sampling (TASS) for drug-unbinding studies.
Dr.Mithun Radhakrishna, is an Assistant Professor in Chemical Engineering at IIT Gandhinagar . His research interests are in the area of protein-surface interactions, protein aggregation & folding and, charge driven self-assembly. He uses the tools of Statistical Mechanics and Molecular simulations to understand the interactions taking place at the nanoscale. He holds a B.Tech from NIT Tiruchirappalli (2009) and an MS (2010) & PhD(2014) from Columbia University,USA. He worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign before joining IIT Gandhinagar as an Asst Professor in Dec 2016.
Kaushik Chakrabory did PhD from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur under the guidance of Professor Sanjoy Bandyopadhyay in the field of Computational Chemistry. Then spent 4 years the City University of New York as a post-doctorate fellow. The focus of research work was to study biological as well as synthetic macromolecules using molecular dynamics simulation techniques. Currently, Kaushik Chakrabory is presently working as a senior scientist in the CubeBio AI.
