Jyoti Ranjan Rout, PhD, is Assistant Professor in the School of Biological Sciences, AIPH University, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India. Before joining the AIPH, he worked as Assistant Professor and Head of the Post Graduate Department of Biotechnology at the Academy of Management and Information Technology (AMIT), Bhubaneswar, India. Dr. Rout has more than 10 years of experience in both teaching and research in the field of biochemistry and molecular biology. He is the recipient of a NESA-scientist of the year award and the Professor B.K. Nanda memorial award from the National Environmental Science Academy, India, and Orissa Botanical Society, India, respectively. Dr. Rout has published over 45 research articles in various national and international peer-reviewed journals and has contributed several book chapters in different edited book volumes with international publishers, including Springer and CRC Press. He is actively involved as an editorial board member and reviewer of many international journals. His area of research includes biochemical and molecular aspects of toxicology, protein and elemental profiling, gene expression of antioxidant enzymes, phytochemical screening and in vitro tissue and organ culture of medicinal plants. His recent area of interest is to understand the metal causing toxicity in cellular, biochemical, molecular level in plants which act as a potential bio-indicator of metal pollution to agriculture and public health. He earned his master’s degree in Biotechnology from North Orissa University and his PhD (Biotechnology) from Utkal University in the area of stress biochemistry, molecular biology, and nutritional stress tolerance in plants.
Rout George Kerry is a research scholar at Utkal University, Odisha, India. He has published about 27 articles in peer-reviewed international journals and edited books. He became acquainted with the importance of nanotechnology by one of his mentors, which triggered his interest to do scientific research in depth. Thereafter, Mr. Kerry was fully engaged to explore the infinite potentials that are possible from the crossover of biotechnology and nanotechnology. Basically, he emphasizes on the formulation of nano-based therapeutics against infectious and noninfectious ailments, the impact of probiotics in health management, and the role of nanotechnology in health as well as for the sustainable development of agriculture. Presently, he is working on an array of organic and inorganic nanoparticle-based drug delivery systems for reversal of type-II diabetes mellitus. Mr. Kerry graduated from Utkal University and went on to pursue his master’s degree in Biotechnology from Berhampur University, India.
Abinash Dutta recently joined the Institute of Life Sciences, Odisha, India, and carried out his postdoctoral research work on zebrafish development.
