Dilip Narayanan

Assistant Professor

Member of:


    Dilip Narayanan started his research career at The Arctic University of Norway where he in 2017 received a PhD degree under Prof. Richard Alan Engh for the Structure based drug design efforts on ATP dependent enzymes (Protein Kinase and Heat Shock Protein 70). In 2016, he moved to copenhagen as a post doc to work with Assoc. Prof. Anders Bach at University of Copenhagen to implement a FBDD platform at Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology. In 2020, he started working as Assistant Professor with (Prof. Michael Gajhede) on cryo-EM to apply in the field of Epigenetics. Later in 2021, he moved back to Anders Bach group to develop small-molecule ligands for the tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF) receptors. 

    Research interest

    I integrate my research on projects understanding oxidative stress, redox signaling, inflammation and epigenetics from a societal point of view. 

    Expertise areas

    • Techniques:  Structural biology (X-ray and cryo-EM), protein chemistry, fragment-based drug discovery (FBDD), bioassays (TSA, SPR and FP) for ligand-protein interactions, Structure-based drug design (X-ray, molecular modelling).
    • Targets: Protein-protein interactions (PPIs), oxidative stress (Keap1), Redox signaling (NADPH oxidase 2), inflammation (TNF receptors) and epigenetics (KDM5B).
