Rama Suresh Ravi has a PhD in Synthetic Organic Chemistry from the University of Hyderabad, India. For the last twelve years, he has been involved in organic synthesis. As a graduate student, he worked on many projects-gaining extensive experience in developing organ phosphorus chemistry and palladium-catalyzed reactions targeting C-C and C-heteroatom bond formations. Those studies led him to three first author and eight co-author publications with PhD advisor. After he received PhD in 2012, he joined the lab of Prof. Eli Breuer (Emeritus) at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel as a postdoctoral researcher, where he was involved in synthetic medicinal chemistry for over four years. His postdoctoral work focused on the design and synthesis of novel inhibitors for cancer-promoting extracellular zinc-enzymes like Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs), Autotaxin (ATX) and Carbonic Anhydrases (CAs). The outcome of this project led to a new type of cancer therapy, producing drugs free from certain side effects. In this position, he published once as a co-author and contributed to a filed patent that is pending. One of the novel compounds has been licensed to a company and is awaiting further development. In his positions as a doctoral candidate and post-doc, he also trained undergraduate researchers and mentored new graduate students on their respective projects. While working with Prof. Breuer, he began to learn about G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs), which are the most important targets for almost 40% of currently marketed drugs. Fascinated by his experience in the area, he committed to future research in the field of GPCR drug discovery. Serving this direction, he most recently joined, as a postdoctoral fellow, the Molecular Recognition Section (MRS) of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Maryland. The founding chief of the Molecular Recognition Section (MRS) and my advisor, Dr. Kenneth A. Jacobson is an eminent scientist in the field of GPCR medicinal chemistry and has an extensive record in the training of postdoctoral fellows. His previous education and experiences have revolved around the intersection of organic synthesis and medicinal chemistry. He particularly interested in reviewing the manuscripts, which are specific to the synthesis and evaluation of enzyme inhibitors, chemical probes and on SAR-studies of the hit molecules. He strongly believes reviewing articles for Organic & Medicinal Chem. Will enable him to expand his knowledge and skills in medicinal chemistry, especially in gaining new professional experience in the field of synthetic organic chemistry, with an emphasis on the processes of drug discovery.

Mishra has contributed to significant synthesis of Ru(II) and Ru(III) polypyridyl complexes and screened several of them for their anti-HIV and cytotoxic activities anddiscovered some of them possessing substantially higher anti-HIV activity compared tothe standard azidothymidine (AZT). [Bio-org. Med. Chem., 9, 1667, 2001].Hi compounds also showed cytotoxic and anti-HIV activity against ovariancarcinoma and lung-adeno carcinoma and they have been listed in WHO collections.Another class of compounds synthesized by Prof. Mishra showed cytotoxicity speciallyagainst ileothecal carcinoma and found to be many fold potent as compared to AZT(Metal-Based Drugs, 8, 65, 2001; ibid,8, 113, 2001). Other interesting contributions from Prof. Mishra include the serendipitous observationof interaction of some of the metal complexes with calf-Thymus DNA (New J. chem. (Royal Society Journal) 24, 505, 2000) and nitrite/nitrate reductase activity. (Journal of Inorgaic BioChemistry 86, 581, 2001). Further, several of the Ru(ll) complexes synthesized by he facilitated the photoinduced energy/electron transferprocess. These metal complexes thus have potential as molecular electronic materials(Chemistry Letters 447, 1997, Transition Met. Chem. 25, 579, 2000 and Bull. Chem.Soc. Japan. 73, 2051, 2000). He has developed new Co(III) complexes which bind to thymine and adenine bases and provided structurally interesting materials. (Bull. Mater. Sci,24, 339,2001). More recently, Re(II) complexes have been observed to show physiological acceptability, as tested in mice and they have been found to bind to LDH. Some of the complexes showed increase in P53 level and induced release of cytochrome c and DNA cleavage. He also developed simple nano-size sheet-like and tubular materials and metallo supramolecules, which have potential to act as a receptor for binding of phenol and hexa fluorobenzene. He has widely travelled to Japan , Germany, USA, Belgium, China ,Taiwan, and Spain and many other places and has psented his lectures in several International conferences including 100th Nobel award anniversary to Paul ehrlich” Magic Bullet” conference organized in Nuremberg, Germany during Oct 2-5, 2008.

During his sabbatical, he visited University of Arizona, Tucson, USA; Nagoya Institute of Technology, Nagoya, Japan; Loughborough University, UK, University of Leicester, UK and RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany. His research interests are centered on Synthetic Organic Chemistry with special emphasis toward the development of novel building block precursors, new eco-compatible synthetic methods, multicomponent domino/tandem reactions, and structural studies. The main focus of his researchis to develop highly selective one-pot multicomponent domino reactions (MDRs) for numerous useful scaffolds with substituent and skeletal diversity. By virtue of astonishing success of newly developed domino reactions with regard to atom/step/cost-economy, sustainability, versatility, scope, and applicability,they have received significant attention of synthetic, medicinal, and material chemists. Extraordinarily, the remarkable renovation of a simple molecule-oxo/-enolic dithioester has been achieved towards its diversification for variety of purposes exhibiting power and diversity of domino/cascade annulations. An effective control for the selective cleavage and formation of carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom (C-N, C-O & C-S) bonds in one-pot in a single operation have been achieved.He has successfully guided 20 Ph.

Anshuman Srivastava, obtained his Ph.D in the field of Material Science and Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (BHU) Varanasi, India. He has worked as a Joint Director (R and D), IIP Mumbai, Government of India. Presently, he is working as Professor in Mechanical Engineering Department, SIET Allahabad, India. He has published many research papers in journals like Composites Science and Technology, Journal of Power Sources, Material Research Bulletin and many others. He is life member of various professional bodies like Electron Microscopy Society of India, International Association of Engineers (IAENG), IAENG Society of Industrial Engineering, IAENG Society of Mechanical Engineering, Material Research Society of India, Indian Society for Technical Education, Asian Polymer Association, Indian Society for Advancement in Material Processing and Engineering, Senior Member Hong Kong Society of Mechanical Engineers SM No 20170612001, Hong Kong Chemical, Biological & Environmental Engineering Society . Presently he is guiding several under graduate and post graduate research work. His research work is focused on Dielectric and Mechanical Properties of PVDF/CCTO and modified CCTO composites. Effect of varying amount of modified calcium copper titanate (CCTO and La. Nb, Zr and Sn doped CCTO) in PVDF has been investigated on the mechanical and dielectric properties of the composites. Phase analysis has been done using powder X-ray diffraction (XRD). SEM images were recorded to study the surface morphology. Thermal analysis has been done using Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). Microstructural, dielectric and mechanical properties have been investigated in detail. Composites exhibit higher values of Young’s modulus than that of PVDF. Dielectric permittivity increases with the increase in ceramic content. Dielectric loss increases slightly with increasing temperature and decreases with increasing frequency. Dielectric relaxations have been studied using modulus spectroscopy. Two dielectric relaxations have been observed, one in the low frequency range and the other in the intermediate frequency range. The low frequency relaxation is attributed to the Maxwell-Wagner-Sillar type while the high frequency relaxation is due to αc relaxation associated with the molecular motion of the polymer chains in the crystalline regions of PVDF.
