Dr. Farrukh Jamal is Professor of Biochemistry at Dr. Rammanohar Lohia Avadh University, Ayodhya, India. His experience in the area of biochemistry includes reproductive biochemistry, plant proteins and enzymes in wastewater treatment, and insect pest management of agriculturally important food crops. Dr. Jamal started his scientific career in 1996 at the prestigious Central Drug Research Institute, Lucknow, India. He took up professional teaching in 2001 as Assistant Professor of Biochemistry at Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Avadh University, Faizabad, India. Associated with mentoring students of biochemistry at master’s level his interest in research has never ceased. At present his focus is on addressing the growing public concern of the toxicity and carcinogenicity of synthetic and recalcitrant dyes. Dr. Jamal’s interests lie in designing strategies/approaches in purifying inexpensive peroxidases from easily available natural resources whose behavior under different conditions may be studied, and further protein engineering that may be done to obtain novel peroxidases that would sustain harsh conditions, culminating in overcoming the limitations in current wastewater treatment strategies. Another aspect in which he has contributed includes characterizing novel defense proteins/proteinacious protease inhibitors present in plants and their effectiveness on insect pests for applications in integrated pest management. Apart from these, he has always been fascinated by the science involved in genetic engineering and biotechnology. Dr. Jamal has undertaken several independent projects, participated in several seminars and conferences, and published his work in internationally acclaimed books and journals. He has been bestowed with a fellowship from CSIR, India. Dr. Jamal is also actively engaged in various university academic and administrative assignments.
