Dr. Nikhil Agrawal is skilled in structural bioinformatics. He has published more then 20 research articles in peer-reviewed journals. The list of his contributions could be found here . In his research, Dr. Agrawal applies methods of molecular docking, all-atom molecular dynamics simulations, and coarse-grained simulations to investigate interactions of various proteins (including peripheral and transmembrane proteins) with metal ions, candidate drugs, and membrane environment. His research interests also touch force field parameterization, self-assembly simulations, and drug entrapment by polymer and nanoparticles.

Currently, Dr. Agrawal is employed as a senior research assistant by Adam Mickiewicz University in Poland. Before that, he worked as a research assistant at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa.
