When science basics merge with research experiments strengthen the knowledge and base

Methodology

My teaching method starts with very basics and gradually goes towards advance stage. I like to make class interactive and logistic. I prefer students ask questions rather me. I believe classes should be interactive and very basics so that students find it interesting.

Background

I am doctorate in biotechnology and having research experience in drug designing, protein engineering and animal experiments. I have been teaching the given subjects from past two years in colleges. I believe in visionary and conceptual teaching for better future of students.

Pooja's CV

EDUCATION
οƒ˜ Doctorate Student (Ph.D.) 2009-2016 Ph.D. from Institute of Microbial Technology (IMTECH), Chandigarh, India.
οƒ˜ Masters in Biotechnology (MSc) 2004-06 from Banasthali Vidayapath University, Rajasthan, India.

RESEARCH EXPERIENCE
Doctorate Student (Ph.D.), Institute of Microbial Technology (IMTECH), Chandigarh, India, (2009-2016).
Project: An approach for improvement of Clot-Dissolving proteins for generation of efficient therapeutics
οƒ˜ Designed modified-Streptokinase (SK) by covalent attachment of the different polymers of polyethylene glycol (PEG) to the SK-cysteine mutants. The mutants demonstrated substantial retention of biological
activity, specific activity and catalytic efficiency.
οƒ˜ Utilized techniques in molecular biology, genetics, recombinant protein expression and purification, biochemistry, and fluorescence microscopy.
οƒ˜ Presented work at International conferences including Frontier in Modern biology.
Research Assistant, Laboratory of Protein Science and Engineering (Dr. Girish Sahni), IMTECH, Chandigarh, India, (2008-2009).
οƒ˜ Successful development of clot-specific streptokinase (Sahni et. al; 2007, United States Patent No. US 8093032 B2).
οƒ˜ Involved strategic generation and subsequent biochemical, biophysical characterization of mutants of streptokinase and plasminogen.
Project Assistant, Laboratory of Protein Science and Engineering (Dr.
Kishore Raghuvansh), IMTECH, Chandigarh, India (2007-2008).
οƒ˜ Designing, synthesis and characterization of self-assembling peptides containing Ξ²-turn like motifs.
οƒ˜ Synthetic Ξ²-sheet breaker peptides were synthesized that bind to amyloid-Ξ² peptide and thus stabilize the normal conformation, and destabilize the-Ξ² sheet rich structure which leads to the formation of
amyloid plaques.
οƒ˜ Utilized silica column, RPHPLC, thin-layer chromatography and NMR, Congo-red birefringence, UV-spectrophotometer analysis.
