Dr Suphiya Khan, presently working as Associate Professor in the department of Bioscience and Biotechnology, Banasthali University, India. She has twelve years of teaching and research experience. Her strong background mainly relates to DNA fingerprinting, chemoprofiling, development of nano-adsorbents and Fluoride (F) phytoremediation technology. She has received various awards viz DBT-research Associateship, young scientist By ISGBRD,ICAR, recognition award for research and teaching and Indian National Academy of Sciences(INSA) international visiting scientist fellowship. She has been awarded as a principle investigator and co-investigator in various projects duly funded by UGC, MHRD, DST and DBT. Currently, she is handling Center of excellence on Water and Energy which is duly funded by MHRD with 2.5 crore rupees. Her work has been recognized internationally at various scientific conferences and journals. She has publishes over 30 peer reviewed articles and published two books on DNA fingerprinting and chemoprofiling. Dr Suphiya Khan’s research interest focused on development of cost effective defluoridation technology for rural as well as urban people. She served as a reviewer of peer-reviewed journals in the area of DNA fingerprinting and Fluoride contamination. In addition to research, Dr Suphiya Khan is actively involved in teaching of undergraduate and post graduate students.
