Research Interest

Dr . Munish Puri  research includes  protein biotechnology which includes protein chemistry, enzyme technology and bio-processing. The major goals of my laboratory are to produce and purify novel therapeutic proteins/ enzymes from variety of sources (microbes, animal and plant cell) and to improve their functional efficiency, specific activity for carrying out transformations of flavonoid/ pharmaceutical intermediates/animal cell product with health benefits. We follow molecular biology, bio-processing and protein engineering approaches for enhancing the efficiency of various enzymes (few eg: rhamnosidases, aspartase, inulinase, proteases, etc)/ proteins (ribosome inactivating proteins, macrophage proteins etc) with therapeutic benefits. We are also working on the biophysical characterization and crystallization of novel proteins to evaluate rigidity of 3D structure which is of paramount importance in immobilization and also for assigning new function to proteins.
