Dr Rammohan Devulapally
Consulting Editor: Rammohan Devulapally (PhD)
Research Scientist, School of Medicine, Stanford University, USA
Rammohan Devulapally received his Ph.D. in Synthetic Organic Chemistry from Department of Chemistry, National Chung Cheng University, Taiwan in 2009. His Ph.D. thesis work focused on TiCl4-promoted intramolecular cyclization reactions and their application in the total synthesis of natural products. After his PhD, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Chung Yuan Christian University on masked ortho-benzoquinones (MOBs) and azulene chemistry in organic synthesis. Then, he moved to Texas A&M University at Qatar as a postdoctoral research associate, worked on synthesis and cross-coupling reactions of organotrifluoroborates. Subsequently, he moved to Stanford University as a postdoctoral research fellow in Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS), Canary Center at Stanford for Cancer Early Detection, Department of Radiology and Bio-X Program in Stanford University School of Medicine. Presently, he is working as Research Scientist in MIPS. His current research works focus on developing multifunctional polymer nanocarriers for the co-delivery of therapeutic microRNAs and drugs for triple negative breast cancer treatment in pre-clinical small animal model and its evaluation via molecular imaging. His current research interests are applications of synthetic organic chemistry to bioorganic, medicinal chemistry, chemical biology, nanomedicine and biomedical research. He is serving as consulting editor for Drug Design, Development and Therapy journal and expert reviewers for journals like, The Journal of Organic Chemistry, Tetrahedron Letter, International Journal of Nanomedicine, and Biochemical Pharmacology. He has authored several research articles in journal like ACS Nano, Nanomedicine (Lond.), Molecular Pharmaceutics, ACS Chemical biology, Tetrahedron Letters. WIREs Nanomedicine and Nanobiotechnology and The Journal of Organic Chemistry. He is a member of American Chemical Society and World Molecular Imaging Society (WMIC).
