Past Experience

  • PhD student Berlin, Germany
    October 2012 --- July 2016

    I worked on a project entitled "Mucoadhesive nanocarriers for nasal delivery of vaccines". In this work, I had formulated and optimized model protein (BSA) loaded mucoadhesive polymeric nanoparticles which also acts as an immune adjuvant. The prepared nanoparticles were characterized using various techniques like Zetasizer, FTIR spectroscopy while the in process stability of encapsulated protein was confirmed using SDS-PAGE and Circular dichroism spectroscopy. The in vitro and in vivo performance was evaluated by encapsulating Tetanus toxoid into nanocarriers. Furthermore, detailed in vivo immunization study was performed to understand the mechanism of immune modulation by developed mucoadhesive nanocarriers using various studies including Fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS).

  • Senior Executive, Regulatory Affairs
    July 2011 --- March 2012
    Worked in the Department of Regulatory Affairs. Key responsibilities includes: ▪ Preparation and Review of Dossiers. ▪ Maintenance of track records of research and quality control, quality assurance documents related to Insulin glargine product. ▪ Preparation and maintenance of document list required for dossier filing in emerging markets.
