An expert in the field of fermentation technology and a Professor Emeritus from the M.S. University of Baroda, Dr. Avinash Shah, has spent the week of March 16, 2016, at Amrita School of Biotechnology (ASBT), teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate students. As an Adjunct Faculty, Dr. Shah is a familiar face at ASBT and the department shares great joy and gratitude for each of his visits to the school. Along with his enlightening lectures, Dr. Shah also spoke to the students and faculty about his work in microbial fermentation during a seminar on March 16th. His talk focused on his research concerning the characterization, production, and application of bioadhesin and biofilm properties of Bacillus megaterium ADE-0-1. Most adhesives in the market are made synthetically and are often toxic and non-degradable. Many bacteria secrete exopolysaccharides (EPS) in order to stick to one another to form biofilms. This property of certain bacteria was utilized by Dr.

The plant kingdom represents an extraordinary reservoir of molecules that can be useful to mankind in various forms. Though a multitude of medicinal and aromatic plants occur in the state, their phytochemistry and potential utility are little understood and exploited. In this scenario, Kerala Academy of Sciences (KAS) organized a one day ‘International Symposium on Phytochemistry and Prof. A. Hisham Endowment Award’ ceremony, to commemorate the contributions of the late Prof. A. Hisham, an internationally reputed phytochemist and academician from Kerala. The event was held at the Malabar Botanical Garden and Institute for Plant Sciences, Kozhikode, Kerala on February 27, 2016.  The Symposium was inaugurated by Suresh Das, Executive Vice President, KSCSTE and Prof. Oommen V. Oommen, President, KAS delivered the presidential address.  The symposium’s focus was the chemistry of plants. Sessions included an endowment lecture in Phytochemistry by Prof. Khozirah Shaari, UPM, Malaysia, endowment award presentation in Phytochemistry, invited talks and poster presentations in Phytochemistry.

The Green Energy Lab team from Amritapuri campus coordinated a special session on “Solar Cells” at the International Conference on Electrical, Electronics, and Optimization Techniques (ICEEOT) - 2016 conference held at DMI College of Engineering, Chennai from 3-5 March, 2016. Third generation solar cells are the most promising alternative for silicon based solar cells. Their low cost and easy fabrication opens a wide window for energy requirements. The wide scope of these thin film solar cells encouraged Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham to launch the 'Green Energy Lab’ in Amritapuri campus. The research work is done mainly under three sections: dye sensitized solar cells, perovskite and quantum dot solar cells. The research is guided by Dr. C.O. Sreekala, Department of Physics, Amrita School of Arts and Sciences, Amritapuri Campus, in collaboration with Dr. K. S. Sreelatha, Department of Physics, Govt. College Kottayam.
