Dr.Aniruddhabhai Khuman

Dr. Aniruddhabhai Khuman is a distinguished scholar with a profound dedication to advancing the field of biotechnology. He holds a Ph.D. degree from the Department of Biotechnology at Gautam Buddha University-Greater Noida. His doctoral research delved into the intricate mechanisms underlying plant physiology, particularly focusing on the role of cytokinin hormones in mediating communication between roots and shoots. 

Driven by a passion for agricultural innovation, he sought to harness this understanding to engineer transgenic mustard plants with fortified root systems, thereby enhancing their resilience to drought stressors. Notably, his work prioritized the preservation of above-ground organ health, ensuring a holistic approach to crop enhancement. In addition to his groundbreaking Ph.D. thesis, Dr. Khuman has made significant contributions to various research projects, showcasing his versatility and breadth of expertise. His involvement in projects concerning precious cotton plant species stands as a testament to his commitment to tackling diverse challenges within biotechnology. Notably, his investigations into cell-wall modulation have yielded insights crucial for enhancing cotton fiber length, a pivotal factor in improving textile production and quality. Dr Aniruddhabhai has M.Tech in Biotechnology from Gautam Buddha University and a B.Tech in Biotechnology from Rai University. He has handled courses such as Industrial Biotechnology, Biochemical and Bioprocess Engineering, Computational Biology and Environmental Biotechnology.

His research studies delve into exploring genomics and genetic modification techniques applied to crop plants to enhance their performance in the field and bolster their resilience against stressful environmental conditions. Specifically, he focuses on understanding the role of cytokinin hormones in facilitating communication between roots and shoots, aiming to leverage this knowledge to engineer transgenic mustard plants with robust root systems that confer heightened drought resistance, all while ensuring minimal adverse effects on above-ground organs. Central to his research is the identification and characterization of new genes, which he aims to harness for practical and sustainable applications in agriculture, ultimately aiming to enhance agricultural productivity for the greater societal good.
