The current interests of her lab are Translational Thyroidology, Etiology & Molecular Epidemiology, Nutrition & Environmental sustainability. She has a keen interest in Science Education and Pedagogy, and has developed student participatory, flexible, niche-oriented curricula with an emphasis on Community Outreach.

She is a UGC Career awardee, INSA Young Scientist awardee, Royal Society (London) Bursary awardee and recipient of Research Grants from DST, UGC, DoE, CSIR, ICAR, WWF, DAE (Trombay).

Dr. Subhabrata Kar
subhabrataAssistant Professor

School Of Biosciences

Dr. Kar is a Ph.D in Biotechnology from the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education & Research (NIPER). His doctoral research was focussed on the role of oxidative stress on heart diseases. He has worked on the role of oxidative stress on cardiovascular diseases. His research work demonstrates that oxidative stress destabilises proteins playing an integral role in lipid metabolism of the body. These results have wide implications in the development of emerging therapies for cardiovascular disease. He has applied his knowledge of spectroscopic techniques to biological problems such as protein-protein and protein-lipid interactions and has published in peer reviewed high impact factor international journals. Dr. Kar's current major research interests span across Membrane Biophysics and Protein Biochemistry. Currently, the fundamental focus of his research is centered on the study of interaction of membrane-binding proteins with the biological membrane using biochemical reconstitution for the design and development of protein therapeutics for cardiovascular diseases.
