Soil-dwelling actinomycetes are the most relevant class of microorganisms to expand one’s knowledge on antimicrobial substance production. Most clinically important antibiotics originate from them. However, multidrug resistance is threatening the future continual use of antibiotics. Hence there is a need to develop alternative environmentally friendly processes of nanoparticle synthesis which involves utilization of biological systems as nanofactories thereby promising an environmentally clean, nontoxic and economical process. Dr. Calcuttawala’s research interest is directed at sampling the soil actinomycetes of East Kolkata Wetlands (EKWs) and screening them for antimicrobial substances and nanoparticle production against a wide panel of phytopathogens. The EKWs have been designated as "wetland of international importance" under the Ramsar Convention in 2002. Microbial richness of this region is its hidden asset. Soil samples collected from the wetlands are expected to show the presence of various new strains of Actinomycetes which are not only ecologically important but also have commercial value. Furthermore, the nanoparticles synthesized may exhibit a synergistic effect with the antimicrobial substances produced by them and can serve as effective tools in overcoming the roadblock of controlling those phytopathogens which are difficult to eradicate using the conventional agricultural methods.

Dr. Argha Chakraborty is investigating the relationship between surface chemistry and topography of biomaterials mainly to understand the anti-infective response mechanisms of fungal cells. His research helps combat fungal infections from biomedical devices and directed towards presenting long term solutions for preventing fungal outbreaks from healthcare settings in highly populated areas.

Dr. Chakraborty has also been involved in the development of innovative vaccine delivery systems that can reduce the chances of blood-borne infections due to needle-stick injuries in immunisation programs. With an international recognition, Dr. Chakraborty is aiming to tackle the problems of fungal infections with the help of scientifically translatable point of care technologies.

Specifically, Dr. Chakraborty is designing approaches to study the interface between cells (both human and microbial) and materials surfaces with the help of plasma based surface modification technologies like plasma polymerisation and Deep Reactive Ion Etching (DRIE). On surfaces, plasma polymerisation can provide a chemical modification with the presence of hydrocarbon based cross linked polymers containing reactive functional groups such as aldehyde, epoxide, alcohol, carboxide, etc., whereas in case of DRIE, a physical modification of surfaces can be achieved. Thus, with the help of these surface modification tools, Dr. Chakraborty is advancing our understandings of biomaterials design and tissue engineering for the development of anti-fungal devices.

Dr. Das is interested in research involving nutraceuticals in the prevention of lifestyle induced non-communicable diseases and drug delivery system. The present global scenario projects two major problems in public health sector; the lack of healthy sustainable lifestyle and the lack of drugs at affordable rate. Moreover, the drugs/therapeutic agents available in the market are also often associated with high cost, toxicity and low bioavailability. Keeping in mind these social issues, deriving health benefits from commonly consumed herbs, vegetables and spices could be an effective alternative. This could lead to new arena of research in nutraceuticals and their efficacy in preventing lifestyle induced several diseases.

Dr. Das’s field of research includes exploring commonly consumed vegetables and spices for their nutritive and pharmacological benefits and identifying their active components. In addition, owing to the low bioavailability of certain nutraceuticals, proper formulation of nanoparticles or nanoparticle encapsulated nutraceuticals for targeted drug delivery has also been studied by Dr. Das. The nanoparticle formulation of nutraceuticals improves the efficacy and bioavailability of the therapeutic agent and is potential in preventing lifestyle induced diseases like, Diabetes, Cardiovascular disorders, Obesity and certain cancer as well.

Head of Department

Dr Probal Roy Chowdhury is currently Professor and Head of the Department of English at Sister Nivedita University, Kolkata. Earlier he taught English and cultural studies at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham in Coimbatore (Tamil Nadu). His doctoral thesis Changing Profile of Community Participation in School Education in Madras Presidency: 1820-1920 has been in continuation of the perspective presented by the late Gandhian thinker and historian Dharampal (1922-2006) in his seminal work, The Beautiful Tree, which showed that prior to the British rule there was a wide spread and inclusive public education system which was functioning in the Madras Presidency and was better than the public education systems anywhere in Europe till the early nineteenth century. In his work, Probal has compiled — perhaps for the first time — authentic and substantial evidence for the emergence of educational deprivation among many of the ‘backward communities’ in India as being concomitant with the establishment and growth of the colonial education system under the British rule. Probal has also worked with the Centre for Policy Studies, Chennai, as a post-doctoral fellow, and with the TVS Educational Society, Chennai, as an educational consultant. His teaching and research interests lie in the history of education in modern India, society and polity in pre-British India, postcolonial theory and literature, Indian writing in English, and cultural and religious traditions of Bengal.

Research Interests
I have worked in the formalism and applications of quantum field theory. In cosmology I am mostly interested in using field theoretic techniques to understand the early universe and the dark matter and and dark energy scenario. In quantum computation and information theory, my interest lies in quantum logic gates and quantum correlations.

The primary focus of Prof. Pal’s research is studying bioremediation of heavy metal toxicity by microorganisms, and elucidating the molecular mechanisms of heavy metal toxicity (e.g. Antimony) resistance in several plant bodies. Specifically, he studies the genetic makeup and molecular pathways involved in heavy metal resistant bacteria by identifying the responsible genes and the genetic evolution of these genes. Alongside, he is investigating the role of selection pressure on the evolution of the heavy metal resistance in bacteria. The goal of this research is to discover the heavy metal toxicity resistant bacteria mediated protective mechanisms of plants and the evolution of these resistant bacteria.

The Pal lab is also analyzing the formulation and application of novel drug-nanoparticle conjugates, and the efficacy of nanocomposites using animal models. He is looking to identify the mechanisms by which nanocomposites impart protective effects against bacterial and cancer cell growth.

Additionally, Prof. Pal uses bioinformatics tools and computational models to solve molecular structures of nanoparticles and nanocomposite material. Through bioinformatics, he aims to understand the genetic alterations in heavy metal resistant bacteria.

The primary focus of Prof. Pal’s research is studying bioremediation of heavy metal toxicity by microorganisms, and elucidating the molecular mechanisms of heavy metal toxicity (e.g. Antimony) resistance in several plant bodies. Specifically, he studies the genetic makeup and molecular pathways involved in heavy metal resistant bacteria by identifying the responsible genes and the genetic evolution of these genes. Alongside, he is investigating the role of selection pressure on the evolution of the heavy metal resistance in bacteria. The goal of this research is to discover the heavy metal toxicity resistant bacteria mediated protective mechanisms of plants and the evolution of these resistant bacteria.

The Pal lab is also analyzing the formulation and application of novel drug-nanoparticle conjugates, and the efficacy of nanocomposites using animal models. He is looking to identify the mechanisms by which nanocomposites impart protective effects against bacterial and cancer cell growth.

Additionally, Prof. Pal uses bioinformatics tools and computational models to solve molecular structures of nanoparticles and nanocomposite material. Through bioinformatics, he aims to understand the genetic alterations in heavy metal resistant bacteria.

Prof. Thakur Choudhury is involved in research on two major areas. Drug delivery system deals with the delivery of a therapeutic agent to the specific site in our body. The therapeutic agents or drugs have long been used to improve our health, to fight against the diseases and providing us an extended life. But the majority of the therapeutic agents face some major drawbacks like toxicity, resistance and poor bioavailability. In this respect, the drug delivery technology has opened a new avenue to improve the therapeutic efficacy of the drug.

Prof. Thakur Choudhury’s research interest is to explore the drug delivery field specifically liposomal and nanoparticulated drug delivery. Primarily he wants to develop new formulations of conventional drugs to improve their therapeutic efficacy. In future, the prime objective will be to develop target specific delivery of cytotoxic drugs for critical diseases like cancer.

Diagnosis of a disease is very important for proper and timely medication. In recent years a major thrust in the field of research is to develop an easy as well as efficient diagnostic tool for detection of disease. His objective is to develop easy, field adaptable diagnostic kits with higher sensitivity and specificity for the early detection of different infectious diseases as well as for different neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson.

Soil-dwelling actinomycetes are the most relevant class of microorganisms to expand one’s knowledge on antimicrobial substance production. Most clinically important antibiotics originate from them. However, multidrug resistance is threatening the future continual use of antibiotics. Hence there is a need to develop alternative environmentally friendly processes of nanoparticle synthesis which involves utilization of biological systems as nanofactories thereby promising an environmentally clean, nontoxic and economical process. Dr. Calcuttawala’s research interest is directed at sampling the soil actinomycetes of East Kolkata Wetlands (EKWs) and screening them for antimicrobial substances and nanoparticle production against a wide panel of phytopathogens. The EKWs have been designated as "wetland of international importance" under the Ramsar Convention in 2002. Microbial richness of this region is its hidden asset. Soil samples collected from the wetlands are expected to show the presence of various new strains of Actinomycetes which are not only ecologically important but also have commercial value. Furthermore, the nanoparticles synthesized may exhibit a synergistic effect with the antimicrobial substances produced by them and can serve as effective tools in overcoming the roadblock of controlling those phytopathogens which are difficult to eradicate using the conventional agricultural methods.

Dr. Argha Chakraborty is investigating the relationship between surface chemistry and topography of biomaterials mainly to understand the anti-infective response mechanisms of fungal cells. His research helps combat fungal infections from biomedical devices and directed towards presenting long term solutions for preventing fungal outbreaks from healthcare settings in highly populated areas.

Dr. Chakraborty has also been involved in the development of innovative vaccine delivery systems that can reduce the chances of blood-borne infections due to needle-stick injuries in immunisation programs. With an international recognition, Dr. Chakraborty is aiming to tackle the problems of fungal infections with the help of scientifically translatable point of care technologies.

Specifically, Dr. Chakraborty is designing approaches to study the interface between cells (both human and microbial) and materials surfaces with the help of plasma based surface modification technologies like plasma polymerisation and Deep Reactive Ion Etching (DRIE). On surfaces, plasma polymerisation can provide a chemical modification with the presence of (traditionally) hydrocarbon based cross linked polymers containing reactive functional groups such as aldehyde, epoxide, alcohol, carboxide, etc., whereas in case of DRIE, a physical modification of surfaces can be achieved. Thus, with the help of these surface modification tools, Dr. Chakraborty is advancing our understandings of biomaterials design and tissue engineering for the development of anti-fungal devices.
