  • A TCS Research scientist along with his colleagues contributed to the development of microscopic models of the skin layers that enable the in-silico testing of drug and cosmetic formulations. 
  • Rakesh and his team have also computationally designed peptide functionalized nanomaterials that capture the natural binding phenomena of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to human lung cells. This development helped the scientific community further their research on the virus.
  • Rakesh was conferred the INAE Young Engineer Award in December 2019, and TCS Young Scientist Award in August 2020, for his efforts toward creating a digital twin for skin.
