What are your future plans?
Our bioenergy research activity at ICGEB got a boost when DBT decided to fund for setting-up of a collaborative ‘DBT-ICGEB Center for Advanced Bio-Energy Research'. This Rs17.13 crore initiative will certainly help us in expanding our cutting-edge research in synthetic biology and biofuel area. Scientists working in the diverse bioenergy fields of microbial engineering, biochemical engineering, algal engineering and systems biology would join hand under the Bionergy Center's umbrella to have significant impact in the field. I foresee that my full energy will be invested in successfully establishing the Bioenergy Center at ICGEB. I am hoping that the translational research performed at the Center will benefit humankind.
