The main objective of my project is to develop and explore hypoxia activated prodrug (HAP) strategy to deliver the FDA approved agent bedaquiline and its analogues TBAJ-587 and TBAJ-876 selectively to hypoxic tubercular granuloma regions. Synthetic protocols of HAPs of these compounds are developed through exploring different synthetic routes.
