Research Associate
gandharva-nagpa

Gandharva Nagpal

Gandharva has done his M.Sc. in Biomedical Sciences from Dr. B. R. Ambedkar Center for Biomedical Sciences, University of Delhi. Further, he did his Master of Technology from Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur in Biological Sciences and Bioengineering where he pursued a research project in Bioinformatics leading to a dissertation thesis. Later, he joined a Ph.D. program under the supervision of Dr. G. P. S. Raghava in the CSIR-Institute of Microbial Technology, Chandigarh. His Ph.D. thesis work is focused on a core theme of in silico prediction of novel molecules capable of functioning as ‘Vaccine Adjuvants’ by immunomodulation of the innate immunity. Apart from this, he was also a part of diverse projects like the antihypertensive peptides and Interleukin-10 (IL-10) inducing immunosuppressive peptides for which he was involved in building resources like the database and prediction tools.
