Research Areas-

The faculty groups in the department are involved in different areas of research including Microbiology, Genetic Disease Analysis, Mutation Analysis, Genetic Engineering and Medical Biotechnology, Fermentation and Bioprocess Engineering, Bioremediation and Bioplastic, Bioinformatics, Plant & Animal Biotechnology, Environmental Biotechnology, Translational Biotechnology (Tissue Engg. & Targeted drug designing) and Nanomaterials.

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

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, she is serving at MIET & 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 human wellbeing.

"Stem Cell Transform Medicine" & Translational Biotechnology is a job creator and engine of economic growth!

International Society for Stem Cell Research reported this year that eighty different deceases can be treated using stem cells. Already 5000 people received stem cell therapy. So MIET Translational Biotechnology lab has focused on training students in this most dazzling part of biotechnology, with huge job prospects as per National & International demand.

These labs focused on future Translational therapy i.e "providing replacement tissue, rejuvenating aging organ systems and creating models of human disease to enable drug discovery and new personalized treatments" and Cancer Stem Cell Targeted study, early detection & 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.

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.
