- Developed and optimized different strategies for separation of half antibodies.
- Studied the effect of various approaches on the separation of non covalently associated growth factor and prodomain.
- Optimized protein cleavage reactions such as TEV and Caspase reaction with maximum cleavage and recovery and best quality.
- optimization of purification protocols of non covalent protein assemblies.
- developed and improved protein purity analysis employing SEC HPLC.
- Followed ALCOA+.
- Executed 5S.
- mentored and trained colleagues.
- Organized and attended regular meetings with the team ad well as the stakeholders.

Junior Research Fellow - 2018 - 2020

Amrita Center for Nanosciences and Molecular Medicine

- Baculovirus mediated expression, purification and characterization of humanized anti-EGFRvIII scfv molecule.
-Standardized conditions for high protein expression (hu anti EGFRvIII scfv) in SF21 insect cells (baculovirus expression 
- Expertised efficient maintenance of insect cells SF21 (free of antibiotics) and scale-up to larger volumes.
- Optimization of purification protocol for humanized anti-EGFRvIII scfv molecule from BIIC ( baculorvirus infectes insect cells) tranfected insect cells.
-Studied the stability of the purified scfv in patients' plasma.
- Mentored and trained masters students.

-Assisted “Study on the expression of pathologically relevant proteins involved in Diabetic Retinopathy in astrocytes and muller cells” (Novartis) - compared and evaluated the effect of aqueous and vitreous humor from patients with Diabetic Retinopathy on vital pathologically relevant molecules in astrocytes and muller Cells

Research Trainee - 2017 - 2018

Amrita Center for Nanosciences and Molecular Medicine

Masters Thesis “Influence of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Patients' Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) on the Expression of Clinically Significant Astrocytic Proteins involved in Inflammation and Oxidative stress”
- Compared and evaluated the effect of CSF from patients (MS and other neurological disorders) on vital astrocytic molecules (GMF b, QDPR, PHB1, DJ1, GM-CSF, iNOS, HMGB1, NO, etc).
- Studied the influence of Quinoid Dihydropteridine Reductase (QDPR) and Glial maturation factor beta (GMF b) on the
immunologically active molecules in astrocytes.
-Accomplished tranfection, enhanced expression and purification of QDPR and GMF b in astrocytes (CTX.TNA2). 
-Studied the effect of a novel inhibitor in suppressing the expression of active pro-inflammatory phosphorylated GMF b across differentially expressing GMF b transfected clones versus the control.
-Performed antibody purification from MS patients CSF samples and studied the reactivity of the purified antibody fraction towards QDPR.
