Dr. Dipan Adhikari is an Assistant Professor of Botany (Specialization in Cell and Molecular Genetics and Plant Biology) presently serving this post at P G Dept of Botany, Hooghly Mohsin College, Chinsurah, Hooghly, India-712101 and have completed more than 8 years of teaching (both undergraduate and Post Graduate). I have published more than 20 research papers in different peer-reviewed journals of national and international repute and activity engaged in biological research. I have acquired expertise in the field of assaying genotoxicity in plant and animal cell models. I am pursuing an active research career conducting students projects (at PG level in the special paper Plant Cytogenetics and Molecular Biology)and attending and rendering oral presentations in different national and international seminars. I have been registered for Ph.D. guideship in the Dept of Pharmaceutical Technology, Jadavpur University, Kolkata-700032. Joined the team of reviewers for the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, ELSEVIER Group from March 2013 and have been Awarded as Outstanding Reviewer for the year 2014 for “The Journal of Ethnopharmacology” ELSIVIER, Netherlands. I constantly upgrade myself by the active participation in different workshops and training programmes to keep abreast with the everincreasing world of biological research. I have Served as a Scientist in SAMI LABS LIMITED (Biochemistry Research Unit), Bangalore, India from November 2005 to June 2007.I have been Selected as a member of Editorial Board of Innovare Journal of Medical Sciences of Innovare Academic Sciences.
