Associate Editor: Riruraj Purohit (PhD)
Senior Scientist, Biotechnology Division, CSIR-Institute of Himalayan Bioresource Technology (Council of Scientific & Industrial Research) Palampur, India
Dr. Rituraj Purohit finished his PDF at Human Genetic Foundation (HuGeF-Torino) and worked as a Associate Professor at VIT University, India. Currently he is working as a Senior Scientist (Computational Biology), Biotechnology Division, CSIR-Institute of Himalayan Bioresource Technology (Council of Scientific & Industrial Research) India. His scientific interests focus on range of issues related to structural bioinformatics. By adopting multidisciplinary approach combines first-principle physics with the analysis of biological systems such as 3-dimensional structure of proteins, protein-drug complex and nucleic acids, He would like to observe that how certain mutation alter the dynamics behavior of onco-proteins and its interaction with other molecules. He is very much interested in molecular folding, evolution, and binding interactions, and structure/function relationships of experimentally solved structures and from computational models.
Dr. Purohit has published a number of original and review articles, including publications as first and corresponding author. He is also serving as the editor and associate editor of a number of international medical journals.
