Welcome To Bioprospecting Group

The thematic area of “Bioprospecting” has emerged from the erstwhile Chemistry and Biometry & Nutrition Groups of the Institute. The newly formed group endeavours to discover molecules from biological resources that have applications in agriculture, health and environment. Current areas of research include:

  • Semiochemicals as attractants and repellents.
  • Understanding mechanisms of metabolic and neurological disorders and cancers for the development of novel treatments based on natural and synthetic molecules.
  • Development of neutracuticals for metabolic and neurological disorders.
