Research Area My interest in parasite biology is driven by the desire to understand (A) RNA editing pathway and Molecular Mechanism of Drug Resistance in Leishmania donovani, causative agent of Visceral Leishmaniasis (VL) or Kala-azar and (B) the molecular mechanism behind the transformation of filarial parasite, Brugia malayi, causative agent of Lymphatic Filariasis (LF) from larval stage (resides in vector) to adult worms (resides in host) and to identify novel drug target thorough proteomic and genomic approach. (A) Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) or kala azar 

Dr. Lipi Thukral 

CSIR-Institute of Genomics & Integrative Biology 
Sukhdev Vihar, Mathura Road 
Delhi- 110 025 

The current areas of research include:
  • Molecular motions of proteins and lipids and how their interactions lead to dynamic supra-molecular assemblies
  • Mechanism of lipid-modified proteins in membrane signaling events
  • Modeling approaches to identify specific motifs crucial for protein-ligand interactions
