Special Seminar on Human Microbiome: Indian Perspective

17 - January -2020
Duration: 14:30 PM To 15:30 PM

Venue: Seminar Hall

Speaker: Dr. Yogesh S. Shouche Topic: Human Microbiome: Indian Perspective Abstract:  The human gut microbiota is "the ecological community of commensal, symbiotic and pathogenic microorganisms that literally share our gastrointestinal tract". Dominated by eubacteria, the metabolic activities performed by the gut microbiome is often as complex as an organ and hence it is now being appreciated and studied in much detail. Increasing evidence suggests that the human gut microbiota changes according to diet, age, lifestyle, climate and geography,   Read More..

National workshop on Fundamentals of Fermentation process development

13 - January -2020 To 17 - January -2020
Duration: 5 Days


The major objective of the course will be to impart training on fermentation principles and engineering fundamentals of growing microorganisms in a bioreactor to express industrially important biomolecules. This workshop will also help the participants to gain fundamental understanding of the relationship between process design and product quality. Participants of the workshop will also engage in hands-on pilot-scale laboratory experiences that define and explore the critical control parameters required to achieve a robust fermentation process.   Read More..

Special lecture on Creativity and Life in Science

09 - January -2020
Duration: 11:00 AM To 12:00 PM

Venue: Seminar Hall

Speaker: Dr Amit Ghosh Title: Creativity and Life in Science Abstract: Creativity involves originality and inventiveness. Most people believe that human creativity is the result of some kind of God-given gift, a gift associated with the likes of Einsteins and Ramanujans who made incredible impacts through their great intellectual leaps. It is often not realized, however, that there exists a less dramatic kind of creativity, which is no less important in driving science forward: problem solving. Overcoming a single hurdle may sometimes lead to results that can   Read More..

Special Seminar on Enhancing breadth of immune responses against pathogenic Ebolaviruses by an Ebola virus-like particle (VLP) vaccine

03 - January -2020
Duration: 14:30 PM To 15:30 PM

Venue: Seminar Hall

Speaker: Dr Karnail Singh, Assistant Professor, Division of Infectious Diseases, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, USA Title: Enhancing breadth of immune responses against pathogenic Ebolaviruses by an Ebola virus-like particle (VLP) vaccine Abstract: Ebolaviruses are highly pathogenic viruses belonging to family Filoviridae. They are the causative agents of highly fatal Ebola virus disease (EVD). In the absence of any licensed treatment and/or vaccine, mortality rates with EVD are often very high. The devastating 20132016 Ebola outbreak   Read More..

Special Seminar on Deciphering Biomolecular Recognition by Molecular Modelling Approaches

10 - December -2019
Duration: 10:30 AM To 11:30 AM

Venue: Crystal Room, Protein Center

Speaker: Dr Goutam Mukherjee Title: Deciphering Biomolecular Recognition by Molecular Modelling Approaches  Abstract: Molecular recognition plays a pivotal role in the function of biomolecules. By considering the structure, kinetics and thermodynamics of biomolecules, it is possible to decipher the biomolecular recognition process. An understanding of this recognition process would expedite the development and generation of potent therapeutics and novel biomimetic catalysts. In this talk, I will illustrate the scope of molecular modelling for   Read More..
