Dr. Khushbu Shah has a B. Pharam degree from Maharaja Sayajirao University (Gujarat). Following her B. Pharm, she obtained a Ph.D. in Medicinal Chemistry from the group of Dr. Aleem Gangjee at Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, PA. Her doctoral work included medicinal chemistry, organic synthesis and computational chemistry strategies for the development of inhibitors of purine synthesis, multiple receptor tyrosine kinases, tubulin polymerization, folate metabolism pathway, and inhibitors of opportunistic infections. Her organic chemistry training includes metal catalyzed chemistry, air- and moisture-sensitive techniques, combinatorial chemistry techniques such as Chemspeed for the synthesis of chiral and achiral small heterocyclic molecules as potential drug targets. She also has worked with traditional and contemporary techniques for drug design and analysis of structure-activity relationships and computational chemistry software like Schrodinger, Sybyl suite, MOE, LeadIt, Gold and Autodock. She was awarded scholarship for academic excellence for all four years of her undergraduate degree. She was also awarded the ACS-MEDI travel award in the fall of 2017. She has published her work in peer-reviewed journals and presented her work at several national and international conferences. Currently, she acts as a scientific advisor for Kramer Levin Naftalis Frankel LLP.
