Dr. Prosun Tribedi

Dr. Tribedi is a distinguished academician mostly interested in quality teaching and research.  He has completed his B.Sc (Hons.) and M.Sc in Microbiology from University of Calcutta. He had qualified GATE and CSIR (JRF) NET and completed PhD in Microbiology from University of Calcutta.  In his PhD program, he mainly worked on exploration of several strategies required to remediate several plastic wastes using microbial aids. He had been able to publish his research findings in several International peer reviewed journals in his PhD program.

After completing PhD program, he got associated with several eminent Universities for couple of years.  Presently, he is associated with The Neotia University in the Biotechnology program. Currently, he has been supervising PhD students in The Neotia University.  His laboratory mainly works on exploration of different avenues to inhibit the formation of microbial biofilm, the main causative agent of several microbial pathogenesis.  His team has been able to publish their research findings in several international reputed peer reviewed journals.
