Dr. Satyam Kumar Agrawal is a biotechnologist with more than 17 years experience in Mammalian Cell Culture, designing and performing experiments with a focus on Cell based assays to identify mechanism of action of various plant isolates and synthetic molecules, anticancer drug delivery, apoptosis, transfection and Cell Line development. He is well versed with latest Molecular Biology, Nanotechnology, Genomics, Flow cytometry and Microscopic techniques.
Dr. Satyam Kumar Agrawal completed his Masters in Biotechnology from University of Allahabad and earned his PhD from Guru Nanak Dev University, while working as CSIR fellow from Indian Institute of Integrative Medicine, Jammu. Later, he worked as Research Associate at CDRI, Lucknow as Post-Doc and as Scientist-II at NIPER, Mohali. He also has industrial experience as Principal Scientific Officer – Oncology, at a Private Biotech company. He further joined Panjab University as Scientific Assistant and later as Project Scientist at IGIB, Delhi and then as Scientist-C at Div. of RBMCH, at ICMR, New Delhi, in project based positions. Until most recently he worked as Professor at School of Pharmacy, Baddi University, HP.
Currently, he is working as Professor (Research) at Chitkara University Research and Innovation Network (CURIN), Chitkara University, Rajpura, Punjab.
His current focus areas are in vitro cell biology, mechanistic profiling of lead compounds with emphasis on nutraceuticals and development of target specific nanotherapeutics from natural products alone and in combinatorial mode against cancer. His research interests are also in studying in vitro stress (Hypoxia, Heat, Cold & UV) and the anti-cancer & anti-oxidant potential of new molecules.
