Dr. Baishali A Jana
Date of Joining : 08/02/2022
Current Project : Fabrication of microneedles and novel drug delivery system for the management of diabetes.
Dr. Baishali Jana has joined the NanoBioslab as an Institute Post Doctoral Fellow (IPDF). Her area of research involves mainly the fabrication of microneedles and novel drug delivery systems for the management of diabetes. She has been working on the fabrication of various polymeric microneedle patches using PDMS molds and also developed an enzyme-based nanoparticle mainly a closed-loop model for insulin delivery using hollow microneedles.
Background: Dr. Baishali Jana had received her PhD in 2021 from Dept. of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, JSS College of Pharmacy, Ooty, JSS Academy of Higher Education & Research Mysuru on the project entitled “Microneedle – A closed loop transdermal drug delivery system for the management of Diabetes” as a Senior Research Fellow from Indian council of Medical Research (ICMR), New- Delhi. She did her Bachelors and Masters in microbiology from University of
Mumbai in 2006 and 2011. She has more than five years of Pharmaceutical Industrial Experience from various Pharmaceutical Companies in the area of QC, QA and R&D. She has also received several awards at National and International conferences for her PhD work. She has published around 8 papers, one book chapter and filed one patent.
