1. Introduction

Arunima Maiti
MSc, PhD

2. Research experience

Started my career as a research fellow at Indian Institute of Chemical Biology, Kolkata, in a BARC and a CSIR funded project. I completed PhD from Jadavpur University, based on identification, purification and characterization of a novel protein kinase and its substrate on sperm surface with potential far reaching implication in the understanding of fertility.
Worked in All India Institute of Medical Sciences, concentrating mainly on isolating P1 protein of Mycoplasma Pneumoniae and designing a multiplex realtime PCR for detection of Mycoplasma Pneumoniae, Ligeonella Pneumophila and Chlamydia Pneumoniae and their role in community acquired pneumoniae.
Worked at Imperial College, London and was involved in the identification of biomarkers for recurrent miscarriage, related sub/infertility and endometrial cancer.
