Take your left once you entered into the Campus (main gate) or ask the Security to reach ‘Engineering Building’ and we are at level 4 of the same.

Project involves: It is planned to prepare and characterize of New Bioactive molecule and  transition metal complexes with anti­tumor and anti­parasitic  activity,  as  well  as  anti­diabetic  activity  (V­compounds).The influence of the binding of  therapeutic  drugs  to serum proteins  on their transport  by  blood plasma and uptake by  cells  is  well  recognized. 

The stability  and reactivity  of the compounds prepared towards  blood plasma constituents  namely transferring and albumin will be studied to evaluate their bioavailability, as well as their capacity to interact  with DNA.  The toxicity,  anti­tumor and anti­parasitic  activity  will be evaluated in­vitro with adequate cell lines.
