Stem Cell and Translational Research Laboratory in the field of Medical Biotechnology & Medical Microbioglogy.

The Founder and PI of this laboratory is Professor Eliza Chakraborty. Earlier, Professor Eliza Chakraborty was with Epigenetics Laboratory, University of Southern California, Los Angeles. Since 2015 this lab at MIET has introduced Stemformatics, for the first time in india. Stemformatics is a field where stem cell biologist and bioinformatician can use the same platform to research towards effective personalized medicine, novel drug design for mankind.

International Society for Stem Cell Research reported this year that eighty different deseases can be treated using stem cells. Already 5000 people recieved stem cell therapy. So MIET Stem cell & Cancer Research Lab has focused on training students in this most dazzling part of biotechnology, with huge job prospects as per International and National demand. This lab focuses on present-day as well as Futuristic Stem Cell Research - Creating New Organs and Repairing Old Ones, Molecular epigenetics, and Cancer Stem Cell Targeted study for early detection of cancer & cure of cancer.

Plant Biotechnology

  1. Plant Tissue culture
  2. Stress related studies
  3. Phyotochemicals

Due to changes in environments conditions plant & are exposed to stresses like drought, heat, salt and heavy metals which is manifested in enzyme profile & metabolites. Screening the different tolerant plants on the basis of enzymes has been undertaken. Photochemical like flavonoid, alkaloid, anthocyanin etc. exhibit antioxidative activity. Search for such antioxidative phytochemical as a step for chemopreventive agents to combat cancer has been initiated. Besides, other enzymes utilized in pharmaceutical industry are also characterized. Micropropagation of elite varieties of commercial crop for cultivation in Meerut region which can benefit farmers is going on. Efforts are going on for biopesticides which are ecofriendly and user friendly for farmers. Molecular markers are utilized for analysis of plant diversity.

Industrial Microbiology and Fermentation Biotechnology

  1. Isolation, Screening and Characterization of novel microorganisms
  2. Production of enzymes (Amylase, Protease, Cellulase, Lipase, Phosphatase etc.)
  3. Production of organic acids (Citric acid, Acetic acid, gluconic acid etc.) and amino acids (, glutamate, tyrosine etc)
  4. Production of Antimicrobial metabolites by actinomycetes, fungi, bacteria etc.
  5. Assessment of antimicrobial activity of phyto-extracts or anti-metabolites against pathogens.

Microbial metabolites are gaining attention for their commercial exploitations in several industries viz; food, feed, textile, detergent, pharmaceutical, paper and pulp industries. A variety of microbial metabolites such as enzymes, organic acids, antibiotics, biopolymers such as polysaccharides, polyesters, polyamides and polyhydroxyalkanoate, are produced by microorganisms. Microorganisms are used for the biotechnological production of metabolites with tailored properties suitable for application in many industries.

Fermentation has always been an important part of our lives: foods can be spoiled by microbial fermentations; foods can be made by microbial fermentations. In the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, fermentation is any large-scale cultivation of microbes or other single cells, occurring with or without air.

Nanobiotechnology

  1. Screening and characterization of novel microorganisms and plants for production of nanoparticles
  2. Preparation of zinc and silver nanoparticles chemically or biologically
  3. Characterization of chemically or biologically synthesized nanoparticles
  4. Analysis of different types of nanoparticles by Spectroscopy, FTIR, SEM and TEM etc.
  5. Check the antimicrobial activity of chemically or biologically synthesized nanoparticles against pathogens

Nanobiotechnology is the merger of biological research with various fields of nanotechnology. Concepts that are enhanced through nanobiology include: nanodevices, nanoparticles, and nanoscale phenomena that occurs within the discipline of nanotechnology. This technical approach to biology allows scientists to imagine and create systems that can be used for biological research. Biologically inspired nanotechnology uses biological systems as the inspirations for technologies not yet created. For example, DNA nanotechnology or cellular engineering would be classified as bionanotechnology because they involve working with biomolecules on the nanoscale. Conversely, many new medical technologies involving nanoparticles as delivery systems or as sensors would be examples of nanobiotechnology since they involve using nanotechnology to advance the goals of biology.

The most important objectives that are frequently found in nanobiology involve applying nanotools to relevant medical/biological problems and refining these applications. Developing new tools, such as peptoid nanosheets, for medical and biological purposes is another primary objective in nanotechnology. New nanotools are often made by refining the applications of the nanotools that are already being used. The imaging of native biomolecules, biological membranes, and tissues is also a major topic for the nanobiology researchers. Other topics concerning nanobiology include the use of cantilever array sensors and the application of nanophotonics for manipulating molecular processes in living cells.

Recently, the use of microorganisms to synthesize functional nanoparticles has been of great interest. Microorganisms can change the oxidation state of metals. These microbial processes have opened up new opportunities for us to explore novel applications, for example, the biosynthesis of metal nanomaterials. In contrast to chemical and physical methods, microbial processes for synthesizing nanomaterials can be achieved in aqueous phase under gentle and environmentally benign conditions. This approach has become an attractive focus in current green bionanotechnology research towards sustainable development.

Mediacal Biotechnology

Correlation studies were also performed between various biochemical tests (SGOT, SGPT, etc) and occurrence of AIDS. It was done with an aim to identify biochemical markers for early diagnosis for HIV infection.

Another major field of studying healthcare is pharmacogenomics. Pharmacogenomics takesadvantage of the fact that individuals have unique genomes representing their genetic makeup. Each genome is likely to react differently to a particular drug and dose amount. Genome analysis of various bacteria, viruses, plant and animals of economic importance were also undertaken in various research projects.

Environmental Biotechnology

  1. Microbial Ecology
  2. Bioremediation
  3. Waste Water Treatment

Burgeoning population and increased industrialization has led to accumulation of pollutants and wastes in environment.
