The title of the lecture was “Synthetic biology for artemisinin biosynthesis and oral delivery of antimlarial drug”.

Dr.Kumar shared his research experience wherein they used intact plant cells for encapsulation of artemisinin so as to protect the drug from rapid degradation by the intestinal and hepatic enzymes and allowing the release of drug into the blood stream by gut microbes. Their research also included the use of tobacco plants for bio encapsulation with no noticeable toxicity in murine models. Dr. Shashi also emphasized on the futuristic approach of metabolic engineering and encouraged young researchers to explore the opportunities.
