Profile

Dr. Anupam Mukherjee
Name : Dr. Anupam Mukherjee
Designation : Scientist D
Division : Virology
DOB : 03-12-1982
Email ID : amukherjee@nariindia.org; mukherjee.a@icmr.gov.in
Area Of Interest : Dr. Mukherjee has a long-term goal to develop RNAi, i.e. miRNA or siRNA as potential therapeutics against HCV, HIV and HIV-associated other opportunistic viral infections. From initiation to 10 years’ down-the-lane, Dr. Mukherjee and his team would like to continue their research in the field of RNAi. After identification and characterization of these molecules, their susceptibility to the specific viruses will be checked, targated delivery system through tagging with nano-particles and post-delivery outcomes will be examined. Therefore, his research interests will elucidate additional therapeutic modalities and will deliver the laboratory to bedside pills for eradication of most deleterious viruses.
