Our Collaborators

Shruti Khanna

Shruti received her Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IITK) in 2015 in the field of bioorganic chemistry, where she studied the structural chemistry and applications of rare adenine tautomer. After continuing postdoctoral work in the same lab for 1.5 years, she joined Dr. Gupta’s lab at IIT Delhi as a Research Associate in August 2016 where she investigated BSA as a model amyloidogenic protein for developing thermoreversible hydrogels for drug delivery applications.1 In 2017, she was awarded the prestigious National Postdoctoral Fellowship (NPDF) by SERB-DST. Currently, Shruti is working as an Institute Postdoctoral Fellow on two research projects – (i) synthesis of novel amyloidic protein-silver nanoparticle hybrids for antimicrobial applications and (ii) design of simple and rapid immunochromatographic assays for detection of sepsis biomarkers. Shruti also manages the Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) spectroscope in the lab. This instrument provides occasional services to external users through the institute-wide shared central research facility (CRF). This has allowed her to be a part of various other collaborative projects.2,3
