    Dr. Pawan Kumar Raghav completed his MSc in Bioinformatics (2008) from Punjabi University, Patiala, India; PG Diploma in Chemoinformatics (2009) from Jamia Hamdard; MPhil in Bioinformatics (2010) from The Global Open University, Nagaland; and Ph.D. at the Institute of Nuclear Medicine and Allied Sciences (INMAS), DRDO, Delhi in Life Sciences from Bharathiar University, Coimbatore. During his Ph.D., he designed molecules and evaluated their applications through response modification that regulates stem cells proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. His main research interest is in the field of drug designing against Cancer Stem Cells (CSCs). He has completed the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India’s project as leading Principal Investigator (PI) in Department of Computational Biology, IIIT Delhi, India during his Post-Doc (2017-2019), awarded by DST, SERB. During this tenure, his research work included developing tools and databases using machine learning, deep learning algorithms, and new scoring function parameterizations for use in docking, simulations, and complex network analysis. Also, Dr. Pawan Kumar Raghav has worked as Scientist ‘D’ in Stem Cell Facility, AIIMS, New Delhi-110029, India. As a scientist, he carried out stem cell informatics, current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP), and tissue engineering experimental studies. Currently, he is working as a research scientist in Immunogenetics and Transplantation Lab, Department of Surgery, University of California San Francisco (UCSF), San Francisco, California. In UCSF, he is developing novel approaches for investigating immune/inflammatory mechanisms of allograft injury and discovering new biomarkers and therapeutics in solid organ and bone marrow transplantation. He is the recipient of several awards and honors, including the ICMR Travel Award to deliver an oral talk in 11th world congress & expo on cell & stem cell research ORLANDO, the USA in 2019, Research Excellence Award from Institute of Scholars (InSc), and best Research Award in 2020 from Science Father. He has published more than 40 publications, including international research articles, book chapters, books, and Indian intellectual property rights for 03 patents. His research activities and broad experience shows his significant contribution to stem cells engineering, nanotechnology, and computational biology.

    Role of Bcl-2 in Cancer Stem Cells and apoptosis pathway elucidation for development of novel molecules
    DST SERB Apr 19, 2019
    Role: Main PI
    Role Description: The molecules developed through this project will be used to eradicates leukemic stem cells. This study will identify molecules which we believe, will definitely contribute to the development of future therapeutic drugs. In silico approach will reveal identified molecules function in HSCs signalling. The identified molecules through QSAR and systems biology approach will also proceed for synthesis of lead molecules to evaluate their efficacy and adverse effects. This work will lead us one step ahead towards anti-CSCs and anti-LSCs drug discovery. The new molecules will serve as new drug-like candidate against the targets using drug discovery approach. The optimized QSAR model will be made online using various machine learning techniques.
