Dr. Tiwari has a keen interest at the interphase of chemistry and biology with a focus on using peptides and small molecules in solving biological problems. Major areas of interest include developing CN2097 peptide analogs for neurotherapeutics, synthesizing fatty acyl derivatives of antibacterial peptides for MRSA, developing peptide-drug conjugates (PDC) for prostate cancer targeted therapy. Other areas of interest are optimizing dasatinib conjugates for developing specificity in protein kinases, peptide based drug delivery system, and development of new synthetic methodologies. Dr. Tiwari has authored 81 peer-reviewed articles, 1 patent, 1 book chapter, and 63 meeting abstracts.
