Dr. Mohana Krishna Reddy Mudiam

Dr. Mohana Krishna Reddy Mudiam completed his Masters in Chemistry from NIT, Warangal in 1999. He received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from Osmania University, Hyderabad in 2005. Then after, he joined as Scientist at CSIR-IITR, Lucknow, India. He received a BOYSCAST fellowship to pursue his postdoctoral work at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore/USA in 2007.  My group research interests are mainly focused in understanding the occurrence, transport and accumulation of chemicals in Food, Environment and Biological samples using latest analytical and metabolomics approaches. Our group expertise in analytical chemistry, chemometrics, organic and biochemistry has helped to design novel analytical strategies for the analysis of xenobiotics and their biotransformed products in complex matrices very effectively. Our analytical laboratory has maintained as per ISO 17025 standard (NABL accreditation) and GLP compliance (as per OECD principles) in the area of contaminants and pharmaceuticals analyses. Our recent focus to establish GLP compliant analytical facility for the Biosimilars characterization sponsored by BIRAC is under progress. We also continuously engaged in conducing skill development programs in the area of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry to postgraduate students and Staff of Analytical Testing Laboratories. Till now, 8 students completed their PhD degree from my laboratory and presently 10 PhD students and 9 Project Staff (RAs and PAs) are working in my group.  We also engaged in holding National and International Seminars in Analytical Chemistry with eminent national and international speakers from various countries. Our research efforts are yielded more than 90 publications with more than 2600 citations (h index of 31). . He is serving in various national committees. He visited countries like Australia, China, France, Germany, Taiwan and USA as part of his scientific collaborations and/or assignments. He is recipient of Fellow of Telangana Academy of Sciences (FTAS), ABAP Young and Senior Scientist Awards and several other appreciations.
