Prof. B. Roy

Zoology Department

Designation: Professor

Qualifications:

M.Sc. (University of North Bengal), Ph. D. (North-Eastern Hill University)

Area of Interest/Specialization:

Parasitology & Toxicology

Experience:

Prof. Bishnupada Roy has more than 34 years of research experience in the field of parasitology involving taxonomy and chemotherapy of helminth parasites. He has contributed extensively in the field of molecular diagnosis by developing species specific primers and DNA barcodes for several helminth parasites. He also established anthelmintic potential of several medicinal plants consumed by different tribes in North-East India to cure helminth infections. At present his group is trying to unveil the mechanism of action of the isolated active compounds of these plants and also to evaluate their toxic effect, if any, on the consumers in Northeast India.
