Rakesh K. Singh Adjunct Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology

I have been trained in the art of design, synthesis and biological screening of small molecules, unnatural amino acids and peptides during my studies in chemistry. I expanded my training in small molecule drug discovery research during my long tenure with Ranbaxy Research laboratories in India. Currently I focus on the identification of novel anticancer agents and their mechanism of action. I also seek to understand the mechanistic basis of disease markers. My recent research efforts are expanding and directed partially at identifying new insulin secretagogues and understanding biological functions and targeting ovarian cancer stem cells.
