  • Dr. Bama Prasad Bag, Sr. Principal Scientist 9437907781, ,


    Dr. Bamaprasad Bag joined CSIR-IMMT (then Regional Research Laboratory) in 2006 as Scientist and has been undertaking research independently on various aspects of molecular probes for analyte recognition. An alumnus to School of Chemistry, University of Hyderabad (India) for M. Sc. (chemistry) and M. Phil. (chemistry) degree; he joined Prof. P. K. Bharadwaj's group at Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (India) for his doctoral thesis(2005) where he had learned and studied molecular/supramolecular architectures, chemistry of cryptands in particular. He further had worked on contemporary applications of supramolecular frameworks and adaptive chemistry with Nobel Laureate Prof. Jean-Marie Lehn at Institut de Science et d'Ingénierie Supramoléculaires, Universitè de Strasbourg, France. Dr. Bag has been leading various projects funded by CSIR, DST/ SERB, MoEF and other agencies with focus on synthesis of luminescent molecular probes for real-time detection of(bio-)analytes of contemporary importance. He is member to various professional societies and actively engaged as reviewer to many journals of international repute.
