  1. To synthesize my understanding, experience, and professional skills into strategies that will help the students obtain and retain knowledge and skills
  2. To make students think—to break through the surface tension of introductory material and instill in each student the desire to dive deeper into the pool of knowledge
  3. To provide the students with
  • professional applications of new material,
  • an interactive environment,
  • incorporating examples of active research in homework and assessments,
  • teaching how to learn—and how to teach by encouraging for presentations and homework problem walk‐throughs and
  • instilling a sense of community among the students.


1.     Undergraduate

(a)   Course CH 427 (B.Tech.(CST),VII Sem): Medicinal Chemistry.

2.     Postgraduate Course

(a)   CH 641 (M.Sc.elective): Modern Techniques and Scope of Chemical Biology

(b)  CH 521 (M. Sc. Core): Bio-organic Chemistry

(c)   CH 629 (Ph.D. elective): Advances in Bio-Organic Chemistry.

3.    NPTEL (Single coordinator) Web based scheme of MHRD, Government of India

(a)     Bio-organic Chemistry

(b)    Bio-Organic Chemistry of Natural Enediyne Anticancer Antibiotics.

  • In India, in true sense, no institute is offering any course on Bio-Organic Chemistry that may be because of the broad subject area and the lack of any suitable text books. I am the first in India designed, completed and uploaded this course on the web under NPTEL Scheme. I have constructing this graduate-/postgraduate level course from thousands of papers in the primary chemical and biological/biomedical literature.

  • Both the NPTEL courses emphasize from the Basics to the Current Research Trends in the respective field.

  • In a truly interdisciplinary way these Courses will unite the central questions of Biomedical Sciences, Biosciences, Biochemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Spectroscopy.

  • The course in Enediyne emphasizes on the recent clinical advancement to the application of Enediyne as clinically approved anticancer agent.


  1. My teaching experience started from my undergraduate studies during1993-1995 wherein I used to teach my Juniors and my Class mates.
  2. I want to share my knowledge with my students and love the satisfaction that results from making them understand a difficult but interesting concept.
