Meet Dr. Ashish Prabhu, the founding father of iGEM NITW chapter. As the captain of the ship, he ensured the smooth sailing in this long voyage with great personal efforts. His enthusiasm for this iGEM project was incredibly motivating to us. His intelligence, humour and kindness created a positive environment for the team to keep working and flourish. His research interest lies in developing an effective bioprocess strategy for enhanced production of value-added bio-molecules using renewable carbon sources.

Meet Dr. Thyageshwar Chandran, an assistant professor at Department of Biotechnology, NITW. He has been pivotal in setting up the team in its initial shape and helped in generating ideas, processes and frameworks throughout the iGEM cycle. A PhD graduate from IISc Bangalore, his field of research is to predict the structures of naturally occurring biomolecules and to elucidate their interactions with ligands and other biomolecules.
Heylo, I am Krishna an advisor to the iGEM NIT Warangal team. My research is based on molecular bioengineering. I work towards creating novel diagnostic platforms and biomaterials. I also love memes. The reason I chose iGEM is because it illustrates the research microcosm-ideation, implementation, failure and collaborations.
I am Simran, an advisor in the iGEM NIT Warangal team. I work in translational medical research applying organoid technology in immuno-oncology. Apart from research, I love photography, poetry and travelling. I chose iGEM because it's a unique platform to foster scientific creativity and its translation beyond the lab.
