Research interests:

Themes Of Research Programs:

  • Our primary focus is to address the basic socio-economic problems of some important diseases and to find out inexpensive ways of their solution.
  • To develop new molecular tools or approaches in the field of disease management using the knowledge of modern science and technology.

Objectives Of Research Programs:

  • Development of better & safer natural medicine to combat non-communicable diseases, viz., cancer, diabetes & psoriasis, and amelioration from iron-overload-induced hepatotoxicity.

Research:

Research programs are broadly classified into two major field namely Medical Biotechnology and Marine Biotechnology for disease management in human beings as well as marine shrimps.

Medical Biotechnology:

Research output from the Medical Biotechnology program is oriented to develop better and safer medicines using natural resources against various ROS-induced degenerative diseases like cancer, while avoiding the detrimental side effects of conventional therapies involving synthetic drugs. Out of the explored 45 medicinal plants/algae/lichens for potent antioxidant and free radical scavenging efficacies (54 publications), among which 14 are found to be safe and orally-administrable drug candidates to release iron in iron-overload-induced hepatotoxic condition (17 publications). Moreover, among these, 12 have shown in vitro anticancer effects in various cancer cell lines by inducing apoptosis and/or regulation of cell cycle, while being nontoxic to the normal cells (13 publications). For the first time, a lichen extract has been shown to be a source of better and safer drug against breast cancer. Moreover, individual phytochemicals in the extract lost their selective killing, among various cancer and normal cells. This finding has been highly appreciated in 9 different news media. For the first time, 5 pure compounds have been isolated from the bark of Spondias pinnata, among these, 3 compounds (named as SPE3, SPE4 and SPW1) are found to have most potent antioxidants & iron chelating activities as well as anticancer properties. Whereas, SPE2, a novel compound, has shown to have anti-inflammatory activity. Additionally, through multivariate analysis from case control study, has shown that ratio of different apolipoproteins and LDL particle size along with distribution of ABO blood group are potent biomarkers to predict CHD, among Asian Indian population in Eastern part of India. Moreover, the association of E4 allele with CAD and the ratio of anti- to pro-inflammatory cytokine with Acute Myocardial Infarction was also found. From the prevention point of view these observations will play a pivotal role to develop biometric chip for early prediction of CHD (5 publications).






       

Marine Biotechnology:

Aquaculture of marine giant black tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon, a globally profitable industry, has suffered relentless destruction due to White spot disease caused by White Spot Syndrome Virus (WSSV). For the first time, 13 DNA markers (71 bp, 457 bp, 773 bp, 299 bp, 262 bp, 442 bp, 236 bp, 848 bp, 402 bp, 279 bp, 244 bp, 213 bp and 172 bp) have been developed to identify disease resistant/susceptible population of P. monodon from research program of Marine Biotechnology (11 publications, patent taken in 7 countries). Practical utility of these DNA markers have been tested by WSSV challenge experiment and found ~103 fold higher WSSV propagation among disease susceptible whereas greater survivability among disease resistant population in shrimp. All these DNA markers will be useful to develop Specific Pathogen Resistant (SPR) shrimp through Marker Assisted Selection (MAS) of breeding program for disease free shrimp Aquaculture Industry.

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHTS:

The goal of scientific work should be devoted for the betterment of common people and if the knowledge of science is not useful for the people of grass root level then it is of no use. All of our research works are based on this important mission. Currently, our research programs are in the field of Medical Biotechnology for disease management in human beings, for the welfare of the people with the help of modern science and technology. We have achieved a number of important observations using various natural resources also including those collected from North-East India, which definitely have the potential for the development of promising herbal based medicine to control various non-communicable diseases including cancer, thalassemia, diabetes and psoriasis.

Aquaculture of marine giant black tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon, a globally profitable industry, has suffered relentless destruction due to White spot disease caused by White Spot Syndrome Virus (WSSV). For the first time, our group has developed thirteen DNA markers to identify disease resistant and disease susceptible population of P. monodon from the research program of Marine Biotechnology. Practical utility of these DNA markers have been tested by WSSV challenge experiment and found ~103 fold higher WSSV propagation among disease susceptible whereas greater survivability among disease resistant population of shrimp. All these DNA markers will be useful to develop Specific Pathogen Resistant (SPR) shrimp through Marker Assisted Selection (MAS) of breeding program for disease free shrimp Aquaculture Industry.
