Dr. Nirmalya Ganguli did his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree from Bangalore University. He obtained his Ph.D. degree from the University of Delhi South Campus, and his doctoral work was focused on Direct Delivery of Transgene in the Mammary Gland for production of Therapeutic Protein. He worked as Research Associate at the National Institute of Immunology, New Delhi, on developing easy methods of transgenesis through testicular route as well as Spermatogonial Stem Cells/Germ Cell transplantation study. He joined NIAB in the year 2017.
Dr. Ganguli is working on development of genetically engineered livestock for agricultural applications and biomedical research. He has specialization in the area of Transgenesis, Generation of Animal Bioreactor, Direct Mammary Gland Transfection, Genome and Protein Engineering. He is experienced in the generation of transgenic mice, generation of gene knockdown mice using shRNA, genome engineering through CRISPR-Cas system, generation of various ubiquitous/tissue specific mammalian expression vector, production of therapeutic protein in milk, and testicular germ cell depletion & stem cell transplantation work.
