Product 1: Nanocomposite Hydrogel
Product 2: Co-Encapsulated Nutraceuticals

Dr. Anirban Roy Choudhury is working as a Senior Principal Scientist at CSIR- Institute of Microbial Technology which is one of the premier CSIR labs based out Chandigarh in the field of microbiology and biotechnology. With more than 2 decades of experience in the industry and academia, Dr Anirban is an adept researcher in Bioprocess Development and Scale up; Fermentative production of polysaccharides and Polysaccharide based biomaterials.

The main areas of his research domain include fermentative production of various commercially important biomolecules and his laboratory is actively working on polysaccharides which are one of the most abundant but relatively less exploited biomolecules. He is extensively involved in the research of polysaccharides ranging from screening, production and scale up of polysaccharide fermentation to developing biomaterials which has diverse applications.

Dr Anirban is a result oriented researcher with demonstrated success in executing projects to achieve optimum and timely results for the industrial clients and also developing cross-functional research teams in IMTECH. One of the major achievements of his laboratory has been the development of economically feasible bioprocess for production of Pullulan and the process has been optimized for 500L fermenter. His research group is also looking at isolating novel exopolysaccharides having unique and remarkable properties suitable for diverse industrial sectors. For this purpose, Dr Anirban’s research group is screening novel marine microorganisms for their exopolysaccharides production potential and characterizing the physical and chemical properties of the biopolymers.

As part of repurposing exercise, the group is also developing polysaccharide-based materials like hydrogels and studying their physical, chemical and rheological properties and also attempting to develop novel biomaterials for industrial applications.
