Raman spectroscopy- an emerging analytical technique in biopharmaceuticals

Nitika’s interview with Bio Patrika hosting “Vigyan Patrika”, a series of author interviews. Nitika is a Ph.D. scholar in the Chemical engineering department of IIT-Delhi. Her research interest lies in the continuous downstream processing of therapeutic proteins and analytical techniques to detect critical quality attributes of the process. Nitika has done her B.Tech. in Biotechnology (2012-2016) from University School of Biotechnology, Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, New Delhi. After which, she did her M.S. (Research) from the Department of Biochemical Engineering and Biotechnology, IIT Delhi, during 2016-2018. In 2018 she joined IIT-Delhi’s Chemical Engineering Department for Ph.D. under the guidance of Prof. Anurag S. Rathore. She cleared GATE (Biotechnology) in 2016 with AIR 37, DBT-JRF (2018), CSIR-JRF (June 2018 and Dec 2018). Here, Nitika talks about her work titled ”Raman spectroscopy for in situ, real time monitoring of protein aggregation in lyophilized biotherapeutic products” published as the first author in International Journal of Biological Macromolecules (2021).
