CPU has awarded Ph.D Degree for successful completion of the research
Career Point University’s Ph.D student Mr. Preenon Bagchi has accomplished his research to discover the drug from Ayurvedic herbs. The topic of his research was “Finding Effective Ligands for Migraine (An REM Disorder) Receptor Protein”. CPU has awarded the Ph.D degree to him and he has submitted the copy of his thesis to Chancellor of the University, Mr. Pramod Maheshwari. He has completed his research under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Somshekhar, one of the scientists in the field of Biotechnology also associated with Azyme Biosciences (P) Ltd, Bangalore. Department of Science and Technology, Govt of India has appreciated his work and granted scholarship of Rs 18.2 lacs for post doctorate. Preenon Bagchi has published more than 50 papers in International Journal out of which 5 were related to the topic of his research – Migraine. He has taken part in international conference at Bangkok – Thailand and presented his paper on “Identification of Novel Drug lead to NMDA receptor implicated in Schizophrenia from Indian traditional herb”.
On this occasion, Chancellor of CPU Mr. Pramod Maheshwari said that, the vision of the University is to inculcate such skills in the students so that they excel in the field of Research, Entrepreneurship and in Corporate World. The goal is to set new benchmarks in higher education so that Kota’s name can be established on global map in formal education as well
What is Migraine?
Migraine is a chronic neurological disorder characterized by headaches along with several physiological and automated nervous system symptoms. Research suggests that migraine is a result of multi-gene mutation in combination with psycho-social and environmental factors.
Cause of Migraine?
Mutated mammalian serotonin hydroxytrptamine receptor 2 (HTR 2) implicated as a factor causing migraine were retrieved from the National Centre for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), its 3 D structure were determined by homology modeling.
