COVID-19 Response: Local Logistics     National Effort

Dr. H.Krishnamurthy
     

Dr. Krishnamurthy is currently the Director of Flow cytometry facility. He obtained his PhD from the Manipal University (formerly known as Manipal Academy of Higher Education), Manipal, India (1997) in Radiation Biology. From 1997 to 2001, he underwent postdoctoral training at the Institute for Reproductive Medicine, Muenster, Germany: Institute for Clinical Research, Montreal, Canada and University of Iowa, Iowa, USA. Later, he moved to Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center, Columbia University, New York, USA as Associate Research Scientist and Managing Director of the flow cytometry facility. He was the General Secretary (Research) of The Cytometry Society, India.

At present, he is working as Scientific Officer "F"and in charge of Flow Cytometry and Confocal Microscopy Facilities at the National Centre for Biological Sciences, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Bangalore, India. His research interest lies in hormonal regulation of spermatogenesis and trafficking and signaling of gonadotropin receptors.

Dr. Manoj Mathew

     

Dr. Manoj Mathew is the Technology Manager for Imaging facility. He obtained his B.Tech and M.Tech degrees in Electronics Engineering and Photonics respectively from the Cochin University of Science and Technology, Kerala, India. He obtained his PhD in Photonics from ICFO-The Institute of Photonic Sciences, in Barcelona, Spain and had a short stint as a post-doctoral researcher at the Gothenburg University, Sweden.

At present he serves as a Technical Manger with the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Platforms, Bangalore, India and contributes to the development of optical instruments for biological imaging and manipulation in addition to participating in activities related to training and education in the use of optical instruments.

 

Dr. Kannan Rangiah

      Dr. Kannan Rangiah is the Technology Manager for Metabolomics in Mass spectrometry facility. He has done his Ph.D in International Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB), New Delhi (2005). He joined pharmacology department to do his postdoctoral training (from 2006 to 2011) at Center for Cancer Pharmacology, University of Pennsylvania (UPENN).  He has been exposed to different kinds of mass spec instruments (ion-trap and triple quad) to do both qualitative and quantitative experiments from various biological fluids. At present, he is working as a Technology Manager at C-CAMP. His current interest is in developing the metabolomics facility at C-CAMP and also to develop and validate mass spec based methods for the absolute quantification of bio-molecules using Stable Isotope Dilution (SID) methodology.

 

Dr. P.Babu

     

Dr. Babu is currently the Associate Director of Glycomics and Glycoproteomics Unit in Mass spectrometry facility and Biologics Characterization Facility. He has established a range of capabilities and protocols for the structural analysis of complex carbohydrates (glycans) and biologics/biosimilar physicochemical characterization. These facilities are intended to serve academia and the growing biopharma (biosimilars, biobetters and antibodies, etc.) industry.

He received his Master’s degree in chemical sciences and then obtained Ph.D from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. Post-doctoral research was carried out at IISc, Bangalore, Imperial College London, UK (UKIERI Fellow) and University of Utah, Salt Lake City, USA. His research experience spans understanding the structure and functions of complex carbohydrates (glycans) under various biological contexts, including regeneration. For the structure elucidation of the glycans (N- and O-glycans, and glycolipids) and glycosaminoglycans he used tandem mass spectrometry techniques in conjunction with chemical, analytical and enzymatic methods.

 

Dr. Vikas Kumar

      Dr. Vikas Kumar is Technology Manager for Proteomics in Mass Spectrometry facility. He has done his Ph.D. from University of Otago, New Zealand (2010) under Prof Christine Winterbourn’s  studying cardiac redox proteomics changes. He then did his post-doctoral training at cardiovascular proteomics centre at Boston University School of Medicine. His has hands on experience with various mass spectrometers such as LTQ Orbitrap XL and Discovery Thermo, QStar XL, 4800 MALDI TOF/TOF, 4000 Q-TRAP,qTOF Micromass for  both qualitative and quantitative proteomics. His current interest are to extent quantitative and fractionation capabilities of proteomics facility by introducing iTRAQ/TMT, ICAT, label free approaches.

 

Dr. Shahab Uddin

      Dr. Shahab Uddin is the Technology Manager for High Throughput and High Content Screening Facility. He obtained his PhD Degree from Kuvempu University, Karnataka India. His PhD was on identifying anti-cancerous DNA intercalative molecules. He pursued his Post doctoral Fellowship at IISc, India.

Before joining C-CAMP, he was at Jubilant Biosys. There his role was to develop and validate assays for NCE screening against GPCRS, Ion Channels,NHRs and Kinases, in both cell free and cell based systems. He has worked on various technology platforms related to high throughput screening.

 

Dr Feroz M.H. Musthafa

      Dr Feroz M.H. Musthafa is the Technology Manager for Medtech and the Microfluidics and Microfabrication facility. He has done his Ph.D. from the National Centre for Biological Sciences - TIFR, Bangalore under Prof. G.V. Shivashankar studying forces in chromatin remodelling in live cells. He did his post-doctoral training at the Mechanobiology Institute, Singapore with Prof. Michael P. Sheetz looking at adhesion of cells to substrates. He is experienced in building experimental setups especially in optical microscopy and in microfabrication using SU8 and PDMS. His current interests are to extend medtech, microfabrication and microfluidics capabilities to the scientific community and to startups.
