I have completed my Masters in Pharmaceutical Science at Northeastern University,Boston.I have an undergraduate degree in Biotechnology Engineering.As Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Science are interlinked in many ways, I hope to work in a Biopharmaceutical Company in the upstream/downstream processing department. Having worked with cell cultures (CHO Cells), Microbial Fermentation Technology and Protein Purification (Tangential Flow Filtration & Chromatography) I want to be a part of the Drug Development Process in a Biopharmaceutical Company. I wish to be involved in this journey to create a more scientifically advanced tomorrow.


Current Experience

  • Cell-Bioproduction Intern
    Since January 2017
    • Set up and performed laboratory experiments including RNA Isolation from exosomes and its quantification using a NanoQuant Plate, thawing and extraction of stem cells from Umbilical Cord tissues. • Performed the 2D expansion of Mesenchymal Stem Cells extracted from the Umbilical Cord Tissue to create a working cell bank for extracellular vesicle production. • Isolated Extracellular Vesicles from Biological samples using Size Exclusion Chromatography and measured their concentration using the Nanoparticle Tracker Analysis (NTA).

Past Experience

  • Intern
    June 2015 --- July 2015
    - Compiled a literature survey on the synthesis of enantiopure drugs using enzymes. - Provided inputs on how to develop single-enantiomer drugs and proposed a change in order to purify a single enantiopure. - Studied the clinical advantages of the enantiopure drugs over its racemic forms.

  • Project Intern
    January 2014 --- May 2014
    - Studied the advantages of anaerobic process over aerobic process in an effluent plant. - Set up a pilot plant and conducted tests to find out the parameters affecting the process. - Proposed a plan to minimize chemical oxygen demand by altering the hydraulic retention time and introduced different microorganisms to achieve the desired COD Reduction.

  • Intern
    July 2013 --- August 2013
    Biozeen is involved in biopharmaceutical production and process flow. - One month training in animal cell culture and handling techniques. - Gained knowledge in aseptic handling techniques in Animal Cell Culture. - Gained practical skills to subculture animal cells and quantify cell growth. - Applied the principles of sterile filtration for media preparation and to optimize the cell growth parameters. - Developed a protocol for the scale up of adherent cells in a 5L Bioreactor. - Studied the basics of Regulatory Affairs in biopharmaceutical industries.

  • Intern
    July 2012 --- August 2012
    - Studied about Microbial Fermentation and Downstream Processing. - Applied the biological and engineering principles to cultivate microorganisms in fermenters. - Assessed the parameters critical for fermentation-Aeration, Agitation, pH, Dissolved Oxygen. - Analyzed the problems encountered during the fermentation process.Gained exposure to the primary and secondary techniques used in downstream processing. - Applied the principles of tangential flow filtration for the purification the proteins. - Analyzed problems encountered during ultra filtration and micro filtration. - Understood the steps involved in Affinity Chromatography.
