Dr Ashok has been the post doctoral research fellow at Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga, Australia between 2012 and 2013. Dr. Ashok has been extensively trained in basic medicinal chemistry and pharmacological methods such as Lead isolation, characterisation and pharmacological assays on antimicrobials, diabetes and cancer using various experimental models. Current work focuses on the use of lead molecules from natural and synthetic sources to treat experimentally induced diabetes and cancer growth. Current work focuses on “a mechanism based lead finding as potential antidiabetic agent”. The research focuses on isolation of some known potential phytochemical (s) from the plant sources or synthesis some novel derivatives of thiazole containing molecules and explores them experimentally for their antidiabetic potential using some mechanism (receptor) based protocols. Collection of research related literatures from various journals, reports, books or thesis.
