P.O.: N.S.S., Kalyani 741251, West Bengal, INDIA

Advertisement No. NIBMG/ADMIN/ESTB/2022-23/277


Position available

Project name: Antiviral Drug designing.


Brief Description:

Within the scope of this project, the carboline-based viral RdRp (RNA-dependent RNA polymerase) inhibitors will be synthesized at NIPER-Kolkata. The inhibitors will be developed against RdRp of the SARS-CoV-2 virus as well as the Dengue virus. The different inhibitor molecules will then be tested by a high through-put cell-based luciferase assay system for checking efficacy. The inhibitory effect of the selected inhibitors will then be tested against live SARS-CoV-2 or Dengue virus replication. The selected inhibitors will further be validated by using a suitable animal model to check in vivo anti-viral activity.
