Bhima Bhukya, PhD, is currently Head and Assistant Professor at the Department of Microbiology, Osmania University, Hyderabad, India, where he has established a probiotics research laboratory. Dr. Bhima, during his early scientific career, made fundamental contributions in the area of animal probiotics. Subsequently, he contributed toward the development of efficient stress-tolerant probiotic yeast and economically viable medium for large-scale production of yeast. His present research interests lie in recombinant probiotics, proteomics and genomics, animal nutrition, biofuels, and bioprocess engineering. He has many years of teaching experience, including several years of undergraduate (veterinary), over ten years of postgraduate (MSc) teaching, and 15 years of research experience. He was awarded the prestigious Raman postdoctoral fellowship/award in India to study in the USA. Anjana Devi Tangutur, PhD, is a Scientist at Council of Scientific and Industrial Research-Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (CSIR-IICT), Hyderabad, India. Dr. Anjana has over ten years of research experience. She has, to date, a brilliant academic career, and pursued her doctoral degree at the Centre for Cellular & Molecular Biology-CSIR, Hyderabad. Later she joined the Chemical Biology Division of IICT as a Scientist. During her doctoral tenure, she has had significant exposure to various molecular biology and biochemistry approaches and to the mass spectrometry-based proteomics techniques. Dr. Anjana's research activities at IICT involve screening of small molecules as anticancer agents (NFk- , HDAC inhibitors, antitubulin agents, etc.) using various in vitro and in vivo tests. Her research interests lie mainly in applying molecular biology and proteomics based approaches to understand the underlying mechanisms behind disease pathology (in different cancers) or a particular mechanism in a biological system. Her research efforts have been published in reputed international and national journals and conference proceedings. She was selected for the AOHUPO/KSMS young scientist award (HUPO 6th Annual World Congress, Seoul, Korea). She has several ongoing projects funded by DBT, which include the BioCARe award for women scientists (2013-2016) and also the Rapid grant for a young investigator (2013-2016). She served as a subject expert, external examiner, and also a member of the several interview selection committees in colleges, universities, and in the Institute.
