Dr  Sushil  Maurya

Sushil received his PhD in Chemistry from National Chemical Laboratory (NCL), Pune, India.  At NCL, he worked under the supervision of Dr. M K Gurjar and was involved in the divergent synthesis of spirocyclic small molecules and synthetic studies on Crassifosides. While working at NCL, he visited to Humboldt University (Germany) for nine month as visiting scientist and worked in the group of Prof Erhard Kemnitz. He submitted his PhD thesis in September 2007 and subsequently moved to Brandeis University (USA) for post-doctoral research.  While at Brandeis, he investigated enzyme inhibitors for C. parvum IMPDH under the guidance of Prof. Hedstrom and Dr. Greg Cuny (Harvard Medical School & Brigham and Women’s Hospital).  
He joined Professor Nelson's group in November 2008.  His project involves in the develoment of a strategy for the diversity-oriented synthesis of skeletally diverse alkaloid-like compounds for the chemical genetic studies. Sushil's research was supported by a Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowship funded by the European Commission.
