Brief Profile

Dr Basak graduated in Biochemistry (PhD) with a specialization in Molecular Biology. He is a DBT-BOYSCAST fellow and obtained his postdoctoral training from the Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, University of Oslo, Norway. He joined the ICMR-National Institute of Nutrition on August 2004. Presently, he is serving NIN as a Scientist. Dr Basak has more than fifteen years of research experience in the area of reproductive physiology, metabolism, and nutrigenomics that produced several original research, review papers, methodological studies, book chapters, edited books, and monographs.

He is investigating the roles of nutraceuticals derived from dietary factors on early-life development and its prevention to the development of adult chronic diseases. The impact of lifestyle and environmental factors on fetoplacental development is also investigating by his groups. Their research primarily funded by extramural research grants, in which they utilize rodents, human cells and cell lines, clinical samples, and molecular diagnostic methods.
