Personal profile

Scholarly biography

Dr. Sreejith Raveendran graduated with his Ph.D in Bionanoscience with an emphasis on cancer drug delivery and nanomedicine from Toyo University, Japan in 2013. After acquiring his doctoral degree from Bio Nano Electronics Research centre, he is pursuing his nanoresearch in Cancer nanotechnology and targeted nanotherapy through the postdoctoral research position. Dr. Raveendran focuses on the novel combinatorial approaches in immunochemo therapies of cancer and infectious diseases via bio-nanotechnological platforms. He synthesizes & characterizes novel nanoparticle formulations with multiple functional moieties, chemotherapeutic agents and imaging modalities that specifically binds to the target proteins in cancer cells. He studies the cellular and molecular mechanisms behind the nanoparticle toxicity, drug activity and immunological stimulations after specific targeting through new multimodal therapeutics. His expertise is not limited to nanotechnology but microbiology, immunology, cancer biology, tissue engineering, material science, molecular biology, bioengineering and microscopy. He worked as Research Associate in Infection pharmacology at AstraZeneca India Pvt. Ltd., and Junior Research Associate in Abl Biotechnologies Ltd., India, during his early career.

Research interests

My research interests are in Cancer immunotherapy & Cancer- cell biology; developing novel nanoformulations for cancer-drug delivery and chemo-immunotherapy as well as stimulating immune cells and immune response by targeting cancer cells using novel nanoparticles functionalized with immunomodulating agents. My present research targets the development of a nanovaccine for treating cancers by proper immunological stimulation through site-directed delivery of chemotherapeutic agents, immunogens and siRNA. I focus in studying the cancer cell and molecular biology of mammalian cells including cellular response to nanomaterials like autophagy pathway, apoptosis, mitochondrial & lysosomal interactions, immune cells & antibody studies, and immunofluorescence.

Approach to teaching

My philosophy of teaching is simple but coherent - Teaching is an art of man making.  A person and his character can be molded both personally and professionally through the process of teaching and learning. My way of teaching involves strategic approaches that comprise curriculums with rigorous theoretical and practical sessions. I believe in interactive teaching, which is more appropriate to ensure excellence in every aspect of learning that includes the subject knowledge, interpersonal skills and time management. Theory sessions encompassing lectures, seminars, and assignments after thorough literature review will help students and budding researchers to develop their subject knowledge while performing research experiments.

Supervisory Interests

My supervisory interests are predominantly focused in the areas of Microbiology, Nano-Oncology and drug delivery, Bionanoscience, Biomaterials, Biomedical science and Nanotechnology and Advanced microscopy- bioimaging. Presently, I emphasize my research-oriented studies in nanotherapy of cancers and infectious diseases via multimodal therapeutic approaches and biomaterial based nanoformulations.
