Dr. Pooja Kalra

Assistant Professor, Chemistry and Biochemistry


Ph.D. from Panjab University Chandigarh.  The objective of the research was to investigate the role of organosilicon compounds in diverse fields such as drug delivery, anti-oxidant, anti-microbial, catalysis, polymer chemistry, and chemical sensing. My research work involves incorporation of the organic moieties to the inorganic scaffolds. Since clubbing these moieties not only provided the structure diversification but also enhanced the activities biologically and pharmacokinetically.
