Dr. Swadesh Sarkar

Swadesh received his Ph.D. in Botany in 2020 from the University of Calcutta. He joined as JRF in my laboratory in DST. Governmnet of Wesbengal funded project. He has isolated, characterized and determined the structures of different biomolecules from the active extracts ofboth from Andrographispaniculata and Azadirachtaindica. One of his main work is isolation of 14-deoxy-11, 12-didehydroandrographolide: a novel compound isolated from AndrographispaniculataNees. Which induces robust apoptosis in leukemic cells. He isolated a novel compound β-sitosterol-3-O– β –D-glucoside from Azadirachtaindicawhich effectively induces apoptosis in leukemic cells by targeting G0/G1 populations. H has published many research articles. Currently he is an Assistant Professor at Chandannagore Government College.
