Dr. Ravindra P. Veeranna is currently working as an Assistant Professor in Academy of Scientific and Innovative Research (AcSIR) and DBT Ramalingaswami Fellow at CSIR-Central Food Technological Research Institute (CFTRI) Mysuru, India. He obtained his Ph.D. in “Animal Biotechnology” from Indian Veterinary Research Institute (IVRI), Izatnagar, India. He has over years of post Ph.D. research experience in the area of the Cell and Molecular Biology. Dr. Ravindra has published his research findings in more than 30 peer-reviewed publications and presented his research at many national and international Conferences. At the CSIR-CFTRI, his research focuses on nutrigenomics, and also on the investigation of the role of epigenetic factors in the development of insulin resistance and diabetes particularly in lean and non-obese individuals. Furthermore, his research also focuses on developing formulations, processes, and products for diabetes, endurance exercises and stress. He is a recipient of many prestigious awards and honors including DBT Ramalingaswami Fellowship, the Young Scientist, the Scientist Award, etc.
