Honors and Achievements

  • Dr. Amit Awasthi wins Innovative Young Biotechnologist Award
  • Dr. Amit Awasthi, Selected for National Academy of Science of India
  • Mr. Manish Sharma, a Ph.D. student in the Virology division has received a travel grant from the Science and Engineering Research
  • Dr. G. Balakrish Nair, Executive Director, received the Membership diploma of the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina by President of the Academy, Professor Jorg Hacker to of the Translational Health Science and Technology Institute
  • Pallavi Kshetrapal, Ph.D. was awarded the Ramalingaswami Re-entry fellowship (2013) to work on the "The role of Notch synergies in pediatric T-ALLs" from the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India
  • Dr. Ashutosh Tiwari has been awarded the "IUSSTF fellow 2013" by Indo-US Science and Technology Forum. This gave him an opportunity to initiate a research project at University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, USA from Oct 2013 to March 2014. The initial fi nding of the project has given strong leads to build up a collaborative project between THSTI and University of Minneapolis on cancer diagnostics. The finding has huge potential to build-up a diagnostic assay for early cancer detection and led to publication in Nature
  • C-TRIUMPH, Dr. Nisheeth Agarwal, Assistant Professor at THSTI is now a member of a team of 39 eminent TB researchers
  • Dr Sagarika Haldar received the Innovation in Science Pursuit for Inspired Research (INSPIRE) fellowship by Department of Science and Technology, GoI, for her project entitled "Dynamic Molecular Platform for the rapid detection of Drug Resistant Tuberculosis" in the field of Bio-Medical Sciences in December 2013. This project proposes a comprehensive open ended molecular platform for drug resistance testing for tuberculosis. None of the existing molecular tests target the overwhelming number of mutations responsible for MDR-TB and XDR-TB. The project proposes the establishment of a Central Molecular platform for Tuberculosis Drug susceptibility testing
  • Ms. Sakshi Malik, Ph.D. student of Dr. Amit Awasthi, has been selected for International travel award (oral presentation) by 6th Federation of Immunological Societies of Asia-Oceania (FIMSA) at Singapore
  • Launch of celiac disease diagnostic kit
