Rajendra Bhadane
 PhD (Pharmacy)




I am a Senior researcher at Turku Cellular Microbiology Laboratory (TCML), Institute of Biomedicine, University of Turku. My area of expertise includes virtual screening and chemoinformatics, structure and ligand-based drug design, Molecular dynamics (MD) simulation of protein-ligand complexes, membranes, polymer and nanoparticle modeling and its simulations, DFT calculations of small molecules, recombinant protein expression, protein purification by reverse-phase, affinity and size exclusion chromatography, protein stability and folding analysis, in-vitro ligand screening, protein crystallization, nanoparticle fabrication and its characterization, small molecule and oligonucleotide synthesis and characterisation by FTIR, NMR and mass spectrometry. Apart from my research experience I have 8 years of teaching experience at undergraduate level.
