Head of the Department, Life Science

prabir.paul@sharda.ac.in

About

Dr Prabir Kumar Paul did his graduation ( 1986 )  ,post graduation ( 1988 )  and Ph.D ( 1993) in Botany , from University of Delhi . During his Doctoral programme he worked on physiological and biochemical aspects of association of microfungi with tobacco leaves. Subsequently he was selected by CSIR , New Delhi for the position of research associate . In his post – doctoral work he worked on an newly emerging concept on induction of systemic acquired resistance in plants against fungal pathogens. He demonstrated that inate resistance of plants could be activated by plant extracts which could lead to establishment of  broad spectrum  intrinsic biochemical  defence in host plants against a range of microbial pathogens . Thereafter in 1999  he joined Department of Botany ,University of Delhi as lecturer ( Adhoc ) . Subsequently he was appointed as Professor of Biotechnology  in Rai University ,Delhi. In 2005 Dr Paul joined Amity University Uttar Pradesh ,Noida Campus as Associate Professor of Biotechnology . Here he held   several distinguished administrative positions as  Head ( Biotechnology department ) , Dean ( Faculty of Biotechnology and Biosciences )  , Member of BOS and DRC  ( Biotechnology ) and HOD ( Biotechnology ,Amity University ,Greater Noida Campus ) . He was associated with Amity University till January , 2020. Thereafter he headed the Biotechnology department of IMS Engineering College ,Ghaziabad  before joining Sharda University in July 2022.

His present research interests includes , understanding  the molecular aspects of colonisation of plant surfaces by human enteric pathogens.

Dr Paul has 52 publications in peer reviewed , SCOPUS and UGC-CARE listed journals  with Clarivate analytics impact factor .Till date 08 scholars have been awarded  Ph.D under his supervision . He filled 06 patents of which 01 is granted and 05 are published. He has presented his research findings in various national and international conferences in numerous countries . He is reviewer of many reputed , peer reviewed international journals.
