Ishu Saraogi, Ph.D.
Editorial Advisory Board, ACS Chemical Health & Safety
Associate Professor Department of Chemistry IISER Bhopal
Ishu Saraogi received her BSc in Chemistry from University of Calcutta, and a MS in Chemistry from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore working with Prof. T. N. Guru Row. In 2003, she moved to Yale University to pursue a PhD under the supervision of Prof. Andrew Hamilton focusing on the synthetic mimicry of protein secondary structures and their application in inhibiting protein-protein interactions. During her postdoctoral stint at Caltech with Prof. Shu-ou Shan, she worked on elucidating the molecular mechanisms of biomolecular interactions involved in protein transport. In 2013, Dr. Saraogi joined Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Bhopal, where she and her group work on developing chemical tools to modulate biomolecular interactions. In particular, their research group focuses on the development of novel antibacterial and anti-amyloidogenic agents. She is a recipient of the Ramanujan Fellowship and POWER fellowship from the Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), India. Their work was recently featured in the ChemBioTalents collection by ChemBioChem (Wiley). She also serves on the editorial advisory boards of ChemBioChem and ACS Chemical Health & Safety.
