Dr. Tapas Biswas joined NICED on September 11, 1989 after completing his post doctoral research at NIH, USA. Presently, he is working to understand how bacterial molecules signal to display heightened immunity and under certain conditions, apoptosis. Mostly, the studies are directed to dissect the mechanism of gut immunity in which bacterial molecules would suffice as adjuvants.
So far he has published over 40 papers in peer reviewed journals, mentored 9 Ph. D thesis and reviewed manuscripts for several leading immunology journals.
Biochemical, cellular and molecular immunology.
Served as invited reviewer for the following journals: The Journal of Immunology (2009 & 2014); European Journal of Immunology (2008, 2009a & 2009b); Journal of Leukocyte Biology (2010, 2011 & 2016), Infection and Immunity (2013 & 2014), Clinical and Experimental Immunology (2008); Microbes and Infection (2007); Journal of Infection (2007); Microbial Pathogenesis (2008); Innate Immunity (2008); Indian Journal of Medical Research (2013); World Journal of Gastroenterology (2014); Mucosal Immunology (2016).
Member (2012-2014): Task Force on Infectious Disease Biology, Department of Biotechnology, Government of India, New Delhi.
