Deepika Mathur


Postdoctoral Research Scientist

As a postdoctoral research scientist in the Honig Lab, Deepika Mathur’s research focuses on the protein-protein and ligand-protein interactions on a genome-wide scale for the identification of putative therapeutic targets for the development of new treatments of cancer and for understanding the origin of oncogenesis. She is also involved in developing methods for the prediction of protein-drug interactions. Deepika earned her PhD under the supervision of Dr. G.P.S. Raghava at CSIR- Institute of Microbial Technology, Chandigarh (Dr. Raghava has moved to Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology, New Delhi). During her doctoral work, she was involved in developing several public domain resources like databases and prediction methods for optimizing the properties of therapeutic peptides to expedite their translation into the market as therapeutic agents.
