Amit Pandey ( ) studied physics as an undergraduate student at Canning College, University of Lucknow and later shifted to biochemistry for graduate studies, specialising in heme metabolism in malaria parasite at the department of biochemistry, Central Drug Research Institute Lucknow, India. Dr. Pandey continued to work on heme binding and metabolism by malaria proteins at The International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology in New Delhi, India working with Prof. Virander S Chauhan he described the mechanism of action of antimalarial drugs artemisinin and chloroquine. In 2000 Dr. Pandey joined the laboratory of Prof. Walter L Miller at the University of California San Francisco, where he studied the molecular biology of steroid metabolizing cytochrome P450 enzymes. Working in Miller lab Dr. Pandey described the roles of cytochrome b5 and phosphorylation in regulation of 17,20 lyase activities of CYP17A1. In 2004, together with Drs. Christa Flück and Walter L Miller in San Francisco and Fujieda and Tajima in Japan, Dr. Pandey published (Nature Genetics, March 2004) the reports on first mutations in POR (NADPH P450 oxidoreductase). In 2005 together with Dr. Ningwu Huang Dr. Pandey published the largest study of mutations and polymorphisms in human POR gene (American J Hum Genetics 2005). In 2005 Dr. Pandey moved to University of Bern Switzerland and received funding from the Swiss National Science Foundation for studying the Pharmacogenomics of P450 oxidoreductase. In 2007 Dr. Pandey described the differences in activities of POR mutants between CYP17A1 and CYP19A1 (aromatase). In 2010 Dr. Pandey published first reports of POR variants affecting the activities of CYP3A4 and heme oxygenase. In 2010 Dr. Pandey completed his habilitation in Endocrinology at University of Bern and became Privatdozent at the Medical Faculty of the University of Bern. In 2011 together with Drs. Christa E Flück, Anna Biason-Lauber and Walter L Miller, Dr. Pandey published the first report of mutations in AKR1C2 and AKR1C4 affecting male sexual development (Am J Hum Genetics 2011).
