About the Serial Volume Editors

Alok Pandya

Alok Pandya
Dr. Alok Pandya is an Interdisciplinary Researcher and Assistant Professor at Department of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Institute of Advanced Research (IAR), Gandhinagar, Gujarat, India. His research work is broadly focused on nanobiotechnology, nanochemistry, and forensic nanotechnology. He has completed his PhD from Gujarat University and awarded with GSA-CHARUSAT Best thesis award for development of various high sensitive nanoassemblies to detect metal ion, non-metal ion, biomolecule and illicit drugs in a forensic context. Later, He joined as Post-Doctoral Research Associate (2013-16) and Young Scientist (2016-17) at Division of biological Sciences, Ahmedabad University, Gujarat, India for development of point of care prognostic kit for cardiac specific biomarker using lateral flow immunoassay. In 2016, he received a first prestigious independent SERB- Young Scientist project to design and development of nanodevice for early detection of multiple cardiac specific biomarker. He has indigenously developed a vertical flow immunoassay-based immunokit for detection CRP and H-FABP. As a reflection, he received multiple translational projects from high repute funding agencies such as SERB-OPDF(Australia), DST, SERB & GSBTM. Currently, his significant research focuses on the development of affordable nanodevice for disease monitoring, agricultural nano-products, and products for societal use. He has published more than 52+ articles in high repute international Journals and published 2 full provisional Indian patent. In addition, he has published 10+ book chapters in the international publishing agency. He has published a 3 books entitled as Introduction of forensic nanotechnology as future armour (Nova Science Publisher USA), Micro/ nanofluidics and lab-on-chip based emerging technologies for biomedical and translational research applications, Volume 186 and volume 187 (Elsevier publications, Netherlands). He is also editor of journal of current nano-toxicology and prevention, Bentham Science Publisher. He has over 9+ Years’ experience of teaching in various subjects such as spectroscopy, nano-chemistry, nanobiotechnology, nano-biosensor, biochemistry, and forensic nanotechnology. He is also IAR placement cell and industrial relations coordinator, member secretary of IAR-student startup and innovation policy, Govt. of Gujarat, member secretary of IAR- Institution innovation council.
