Dr. Naidu Dr. VGM Naidu, M.Tech, Ph.D.
Asso. Professor & Incharge, Dept. of Pharmacology & Toxicology

His area of research interests are Molecular pharmacology, cancer targeted drug delivery systems, Animal cell culture and its application for cell based drug assays; Screening Indian biodiversity and Indian Systems of Medicine in search of newer compounds in the area of inflammation, arthritis, diabetes, cancer and hepatoprotective activities; Programmed cell death of cancer cell and signalling; Targeting sPLA2 enzymes for the treatment of chronic inflammatory disorders; Targeting RANKL for the treatment of inflammation and cancer induced bone disorders.

Dr. urmila Dr. Urmila Aswar, Ph.D.
Asso. Professor & Incharge, Dept. of Pharmacology & Toxicology

Her area of research interests includes pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic evaluation of novel drugs and formulations using various preclinical animal models. She has worked on projects such as neurodegenerative diseases: Parkinson’s disease, Levodopa induced dyskinesia, Depression, Alzheimer’s disease and associated disorders such as anger, aggression and suicidal tendency. Additionally, studying the role of HPA axis function, mitochondrial dysfunction and oxidative stress in these disorders. She has completed various industrial projects related to anabolic and androgenic activity, cardiovascular complications, benign prostatic hyperplasia, diabetes induced glycation, glomerulonephritis, allergies, migraine and inflammation. She has made an attempt to explore the mechanism of action of one of the NCE on expression of TGF β, EGF, IGF 1, FXR, NF-kB, PCNA, PGC 1α, PTEN, RAS, smad 7 in experimental benign prostatic hyperplasia, thereby providing an alternative pathway of the NCE different from that of standard drug Finasteride.

ranadeep gogoi Dr. Ranadeep Gogoi, Ph.D.
Asst. Professor & Incharge, Dept. of Biotechnology

His research interest is on Molecular Genomics and Proteomics to target the therapeutic efficacy of dreaded diseases. Investigation and evaluation of active principles from natural sources followed by the experimentation on in-vitro as well as in-vivo to observe the efficacy as well as therapeutics potential of target disorders.
