* Congratulations to Mr. S N Balaji for Submitting his thesis. *



Dr. Vishal Trivedi, Ph.D

Principal Investigator

Dr. Trivedi did his Ph.D from Central Drug Research Institute, Lucknow in the field of Structural biology. While pursuing Ph.D he discovered a novel heme containing peroxidase from malaria parasite plasmodium falciparum. From his postdoctoral research at the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Harvard University and Molecular Oncology Research Institute, Tufts University, Boston, USA, he gained extensive research experience in the field of cell biology, intracellular signal transduction and immunology.
