Sandeep Verma holds the positions of Professor of Chemistry and Shri Deva Raj Endowed Chair Professor at the Department of Chemistry, Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, which he joined in 1997. His work has been recognized by numerous awards such as Swarnajayanti Fellowship (2005), Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize in Chemical Sciences (2010), Department of Atomic Energy-Science Research Council Outstanding Investigator Award (2012), Ranbaxy Research Award in Pharmaceutical Sciences (2013), J C Bose National Fellowship (2013), Silver Medal, Chemical Research Society of India (2017), and National Prize for Research on Interfaces between Chemistry and Biology (2017).
His main research interests include peptide/protein assemblies for disease modeling, soft biomaterials, bioimaging, and surface chemistry of metal complexes. In particular, his group focuses on heterogeneous catalysts designed by developing polymeric templates based on nucleobase frameworks for application to interesting chemical and biochemical reactions. His work also focuses on the construction of architectures mimicking biological assemblies and metal-organic frameworks.
As a ChemComm, Sandeep will be handling submissions to the journal in the above areas. Why not submit your next paper to his Editorial Office?
