Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology


Dr. Bismoy Mazumder is currently involved in CIRCE project at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology (CEB) as a Post-Doctoral Researcher from September 2019. 

Before joining at CEB, he completed his PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology from University of Nottingham (2014-2019), where he worked on the Interaction interface of two leukaemia associated proteins and their role in gene regulation. He also worked on CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing during his PhD. His doctoral studies was funded by the prestigious Vice-Chancellor's Scholarship for Research Excellence (International) from University of Nottingham and Sir Richard Stapley Educational Trust Grant.

At CEB, Dr. Mazumder is involved with two research groups, Laser Analytics Group and Molecular Neuroscience Group, where he is working on CIRCE project. In this project his main focus is to analyse the biological activity of natural compounds. The major focus of this project is to understand the molecular regulators of protein homeostasis in cells to provide potential strategies for the treatment of liver diseases, neurodegenerative diseases and brain development.
