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.  His 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. His expertise in analytical chemistry, chemometrics, organic and biochemistry has helped him to design novel analytical strategies for the analysis of xenobiotics and their biotransformed products in complex matrices very effectively. Dr. Mudiam group has maintained testing activities as per ISO 17025 standard (NABL accreditation) and GLP compliance (as per OECD principles) in the area of contaminants and pharmaceuticals analyses. His recent focus is to establish GLP compliant analytical facility for the Biosimilars characterization sponsored by BIRAC is in progress. He continuously engaged in conducting 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 his laboratory and presently 11 PhD students and 9 Project Staff (RAs and PAs) are working in his group.  He is instrumental in holding National and International Seminars in Analytical Chemistry with eminent national and international speakers from various countries. His research efforts yielded 95 publications with more than 2800 citations (h index of 35). He is serving various national committees in capacity as Chairman/Member. He visited countries like Australia, China, France, Germany, Taiwan and USA as part of his scientific collaborations and/or assignments.
