Research Interest:

Application of Nanomaterial in Plants, Plant Tissue Culture and Polymeric Plant-derived Excipients in Drug Delivery for Biological activity.

Research Description:

Plant tissue culture has an important role in the production of agricultural or ornamental plants and in the manipulation of plants for improved agronomic performance. Our research is planned to evaluate the potential of nanoparticles to remove bacterial contaminants that exist in plant tissue culture media. However, in this research we are studding the antimicrobial activities of nanoparticles and evaluate the elimination of microorganisms through tissue culture techniques. Also we are working in drug delivery, Advances in drug delivery technology, excipients are currently included in novel dosage forms to fulfil specific functions and in some cases they directly or indirectly influence the extent and/or rate of drug release and absorption. The most important plant derived polymeric compounds that are used or investigated as excipients in drug delivery systems. In the present day, vegetable is a major problem for human society. For this purpose we have started a new project on transgenic plant using genetic engineering techniques for production of healthy vegetable.
