About

Dr. Bennet Angel, M.Sc, Ph.D has specialized herself in the field of Molecular Biology & Virology for the past 14 years. She was awarded Gold Medal for securing first class first in the Master program at  University level. She did her doctoral degree in the year 2008 from one of the pioneer ICMR institute, Desert Medicine Research Centre (present NIIRNCD), Jodhpur, Rajasthan. She has done significant work in the field of Dengue and Respiratory viruses and have many papers of National and International repute. During her doctoral and post-doctoral research work, she reported the first study on protein basis of Transovarial transmission of dengue virus from India. She has also worked on understanding the mechanism of Dengue Hemorrhagic fever which lead to development of a new concept that multiple dengue virus types could cause DHF during primary infection of dengue. Dr Angel has also published Dengue and H1N1 virus sequences in the NCBI database. She is also reviewer in International journals and reviewer of extramural projects of various National & International funding agency.  She was awarded the “Research Associate” fellowship of ICMR in the year 2010. Dr. Bennet Angel has participated as a Tutor in number of training programmes on molecular diagnosis of Dengue and H1N1 viruses. She has also played a key role in establishing molecular diagnostic laboratory of H1N1 viruses in D.M.R.C (ICMR), Rajasthan. She has been the main young scientist in implementing diagnostic services of Dengue and H1N1 viruses as rendered to State Health Department.

She has also worked as Senior Scientist-II in Amity University, Noida wherein she was involved in various academic, research and administrative activities.   She has a good command over the subjects she has taught which includes Elementary science (Graduate level) and specialized subjects of Post graduate level like Virology, Immunology, Genomics, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Proteomics etc. She has even taught PhD scholars during their PhD course work in the fields of Virology & Immunology.  Besides this, Dr. Angel has also guided many students in their Internships and Dissertation works.
