Dr. Rushikesh Joshi is currently engaged in two significant research projects. The first project, titled “Structural and Functional Characterizations of Key Enzymes Involved in Sennoside Biosynthetic Pathway in Senna (Cassia angustifolia Vahl.),” is funded by SERB-TARE and is ongoing. The second project, “Repurposing of Chitinous Waste and Application Towards Sustainable Agriculture Technology,” is funded by GUJCOST and is also ongoing.


Dr. Rushikesh Joshi has received several awards and fellowships throughout his academic and research career. He was honored with international travel awards from DST-SERB, DBT, and CICS to attend the 29th Annual Symposium of the Protein Society in Barcelona, Spain, in 2015. He was awarded a Senior Research Fellowship from August 2013 to January 2016 by the Center for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Government of India, for a project titled “Studies on the Effects of Mutations in Parallel β-Bulge of Ubiquitin on Protein Translation, Sorting, and Lysosomal Degradation.” Prior to this, Dr. Joshi held a Junior Research Fellowship from July 2009 to December 2011, funded by the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India, for his project “Structural Studies on the Degradation Determinant Signals of Ornithine Decarboxylase and Redesigning of Ornithine Decarboxylase for Efficient Targeted Protein Degradation.” In 2011, Dr. Joshi received a travel award for his poster presentation on “Structural Studies on Degradation Determinant Signals of ODC” at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay. He won second prize for an oral presentation on “Fluorescence Studies on Degradation Determinant Signals of ODC” at I2IT, Pune, in 2010. Additionally, he was awarded the Young Scientist Award for his work on “Oxidative Stress Induced by Methylmercury and Its Amelioration with Curcumin, Vitamin B Complex, Glutathione, and Their Combination” at Saurashtra University, Rajkot, in 2009.
