Dr. Anal K. Jha

Dr. Anal Kant Jha did his M.Sc. in Botany (Plant Physiology and Biochemistry) from Bhagalpur University in 1988 and M.Phil. in Biochemistry from the University of Cambridge, U.K. in 1990 as a beneficiary of the ODA Cambridge Scholarship, where he worked with the world pioneering group (Late Prof. Sir Peter Mensfield, Nobel Laureate.; Prof. Peter Morris and Prof. D. H. Northcote, FRS) on MRI and applied this technique to development of plant system which was presented in the prestigeous Royal Society discussion meeting in 1990 and subsequently appeared in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, London, U.K. He was the first indian to have done that kind of pioneering work on NMR Microscopy of Plant System. After his return from the U.K. he obtained his Ph.D. in Plant Biochemistry in 1993 from T.M. Bhagalpur University. He was lone asian to be invited to attend a workshop on Plant Molecular Biology in July 1994 by the University of London, U.K. He was also on the panel of Research Associates for NRC, Canada. He continued his post doctoral work till 1997 at University of Nottingham with Prof. Peter Mensfield and Peter Morris on MRI and on return he worked at Bhagalpur University. In 2001, he went to the JNU, New Delhi as Research Associate and worked on Plant Biotechnology at the School of Life Sciences. On return in 2002, he joined as faculty in the newly established Department of Biotechnology at Marwari College, T.M. Bhagalpur University till 2009. He started working on Bio-Nanotechnology from 2004 in active collaboration with Dr. Kamal Prasad, University Department of Physics, T.M. Bhagalpur University. He has currently 64 publications (50 in Nanoscience and Technology) 11 international book chapters and many nano-based products and processes to his credit which are required to be patented soon. He has recently edited a book on Methods in Nanotechnology for Springer (Switzerland) that is in press now. He is participating scientist of Royal Society-DST international project (INDO-U.K. Water Project) on nanomaterial based online water purification system using silicon glass evaporator.

He has successfully established collaborations with University of Leeds, U.K. AIIMS, New Delhi, Vishwa Bharti, Central University of South Bihar, etc. He is an active Peer for Applied and Environmental Microbiology (American Society of Microbiology, USA), Journal of Inorganic and Organometallic Polymers and Material (Springer) and Current Nanoscience (Bentham Press, USA), Biotechnology Research International (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, USA), Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces (Elsevier). J. Applied Biomedicine (Elsevier), Biocatalysis and Agricultural Biotechnology (Elsevier), J. Mat. Environsci.(Morocco).

Dr. Jha has also developed technology for the fabrication of nanomaterials based multipurpose face masks, medicated BP jackets, indelible ink and many other green nanomaterials synthesis protocols. He is honorary technical consultant of Techsol International, Medwell India and IAB Sciences. He is an active member of International Community on Nanoscience (Nanopaprika), Materiala Indica and a fellow of Cambridge Commonwealth Society, a distinction which he got from the Cambridge Commonwealth Society, Trinity College, Cambridge, U.K., for being awarded a Cambridge Fellowship in 1989.
