​Ashootosh Tripathi, PhD

About Me

I am a scientist with specialization in drug discovery, microbial genetics and biosynthetic chemistry at University of Michigan. I believe humans and microbes share planet earth from completely different perspective but humans existence today is as much dependent on them as they pose threat to our race. According to recent reports, pathogenic (disease causing) microbes are accounted as one of the top ten causes of deaths in USA. Interestingly, microbes also express themselves as producer of majority of drugs ranging from antibiotic to anticancer consumed all over the world and hence acting as a saviour.
​Here, I intent to unravel this fascinating connection between two different worlds existing on our planet!
