Dr. Manzoor Rather (M.Sc., M. Phil., Ph.D)

Manzoor Ahmad Rather completed his Masters in Chemistry in the year 2006 from University of Kashmir. He completed his M.Phil in 2010 from University of Kashmir in collaboration with Indian Institute of Integrative Medicine-Srinagar. In 2014, he got his Ph.D in the area of Natural Product Chemistry from Dept. of Chemistry, University of Kashmir. Dr. Manzoor has worked in the field of Natural products and medicinal chemistry in Natural product Chemistry Division, Indian Institute of Integrative Medicine-(CSIR-India).

He has published 3 national and 28 international papers in journals of great repute. He has also published two books entitled
1. "Gas-Chromatography- Mass Spectrometric Studies of Essential oils: An Analytical Approach”.
2. "Natural product based promising apoptotic inducers.

Currently he holds membership of the editorial board of Phytomedicine - an international journal in plant based medicines. He is also the editorial board member of the Phytopharmacology journal, Global journal of Cancer research etc. By virtue of his excellent research contribution, Dr. Manzoor has earned global recognition and became reviewer of various indexed international journals like Planta Medica, Drug Research, Food Research International, Molecules, Natural Product Research, Journal of essential oil research, Journal of essential oil bearing plants, Journal of Food Science, Medicinal Chemistry Research, Cell proliferation, Arabian Journal of Chemistry etc. Dr. Manzoor Rather has got around 297 citations to his publications with H-index of 9 and i-10 index 9 .
