Mahipal was born in India. He received his M.Sc. in Chemistry in 2008 from Guru Jambheshwar University of Science & Technology, Hisar, India. Upon successful completion of his Master’s degree, he joined the Indian Institute of Integrative Medicine(IIIM)/University of Jammu, Jammu, India where he obtained his Ph.D. in Synthetic Carbohydrate Chemistry in 2016 with Dr. Ram A Vishwakarma. In the Fall of 2016, he joined the Krishnamurthy Lab at the Scripps Research Institute as a postdoctoral researcher where his fellowship is funded by Center for Chemical Evolution (CCE), Georgia Tech. In his free time, Mahipal loves to watch games and movies.
The Scripps Research Institute
My major research interest focuses on the synthesis and biological functions of carbohydrate molecules. In Krishnamurthy lab, I am working on understanding the role of polysaccharides/carbohydrates in chemical evolution involving fundamental chemistry. In addition to that, I am also interested in synthetic methodologies based on C-H activation/functionalization involving functionalization of bioactive molecules.
