Ankita Mridha

Ankita Mridha did her Masters in Zoology from University of Calcutta. Her work is focused on screening of the freshwater as well as marine algae from different lentic and lotic zones of West Bengal. Screening includes for both antioxidant profiling and anti-proliferativeactivity of the algal extracts using various bioassays. Post screening, Ankita is further investigating the molecular mechanisms leading to apoptosis of cancer cells, in an effort to fish out the most potent algal species possessing anti-cancer potential.
