Dr. Basak’s teaching interest includes various Pharm.D. courses, such as Pharmacology, Biochemistry, and Medicinal Chemistry.
Dr. Basak’s research focuses on using small molecules in different cancers. His research involved functionalization of mutant p53 protein by employing thiol and redox modulating small molecules. He also worked on inhibition of O6-methylguanine DNA-methyltransferase (MGMT) protein in brain tumors using thiolating and nitrosylating agents. Apart from these, he also has an interest in downregulating NEK2 protein that is aberrantly over expressed in DLBCL (diffuse large B-cell lymphoma) using a variety of small molecule inhibitors.
