Surfaces modification with antimicrobial peptides using Sortase A enzyme

Poonam Kumari, Speaker at 
Bioengineering Conferences
National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education & Research (NIPER), India

Biography:

Miss Poonam Kumari completed here Master in technology and currently pursuing her PhD from NIPER Guwahati, India. Her Ph.D. work is on “Sortase based biomolecular engineering”. During the last one year, she was able to develop a method for the generation of novel protein coding gene libraries, for which an Indian Patent application has been filed. She has screened the surface of S. aureus for evolving novel peptides that bind its surface with high affinity. Apart from her expertise in molecular biology tools set, she also has learned solid phase peptide synthesis, which is an asset for a Biology student. She has synthesized her peptides and analysed them for antibacterial activity. Her work has generated enough results, on which we are about to file a patent and communicate a manuscript from her last one-year work. She has published one research paper also from her thesis work and few are in communication.
