Mr. Nishith Teraiya joined KBIPER in June 2008 as a Lecturer in the department of pharmachemistry. He has worked in the are of SARS viral infcetion at KLE college of pharmacy in collaboration with NIH, NIAID and National Tuberculosis Institute, Bangalore in his postgraduation research work and have applied his knowledge aginst virus infection to develop molecule promising such activity. Some of the molecules have been proved higly active against yellow fever virus and Human Papilloma virual infection, but because of toxicity they could no be a drug candidate. He was awarded SRF at Punajab University for persuing his Ph. D program. He was also awarded UGC-GATE scholarship for Ph.D in engineering and pharmacy students.
At KBIPER, Mr. Teraiya is involved in teaching in pharmachemistry department for B.Pharm, and Pharm D students. He is also involved in research and developmental activities in the areas of Pharmachemistry.
