Research interests

  1. Dr. C Gopi Mohan received his Ph.D. degree from Banaras Hindu University in 1997. He worked for about two years as Post-doctoral fellow in the Molecular Biophysics Unit at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, followed by Research Officer in the Department of Biology and Biochemistry, University of Bath, United Kingdom. Further, he worked as Associate Researcher in Laboratoire de Cristallographie et Modélisation des Matériaux Minéraux et Biologiques, CNRS, Faculté de Sciences Bd des Aiguillettes, Vandoeuvre-les-Nancy, France. During his research carrier he visited different countries which include: UK, Canada, France and Finland. He joined as a faculty member of National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education & Research, Mohali, Punjab from 2005 and served there for six years. During his stay at NIPER he was instrumental in setting up different laboratories of Pharmacoinformatics discipline in which MS (Pharm) course and Ph.D. degree was ongoing. He had been recipient of Indo-Finland grant for computational biology related to drug development and visited University of Helsinki and University of Turku to complete successfully this collaborative bilateral program. He has taught different courses at NIPER, both at postgraduate and doctoral level. He has also supervised about 23 postgraduate theses. He along with his students and other colleagues has authored about 43 research papers and three review articles. He was reviewer of different international/national research journals, thesis and grants etc. The research area of Gopi Mohan spans over Computational Biology and Structural Bioinformatics, Structure-Based Drug Design and Protein crystallography. His protein models and other related computational work was appreciated by US based pharmaceutical company leading to future collaboration. He was also cited as international well known expert in the field of Structural Bioinformatics and Chemoinformatics by Synergix Ltd. United Kingdom, which was founded in 1996 by Dr. N.C. Cohen, a pioneer of rational drug design.
