Dr. Manzoor Koyakutty

Dr. Manzoor Koyakutty currently serves as Professor, Cancer Nanomedicine & Immunotherapeutics Group, Amrita Center for Nanosciences and Molecular Medicine, Cochin, India. He specializes in the area of Cancer nanomedicine & Immunotherapeutics. Dr. Manzoor joined ACNS during June 2007 after 9 years of service as Staff-Scientist at the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO), Government of India. During this tenure, he completed Ph. D. in Physics (Nanoscience) from DRDO (JNVU, Jodhpur) under the guidance of Dr. S. R. Vadera, Director, DRDO and Prof. T. R. N. Kutty, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. After shifting to Amrita, Dr. Manzoor’s team focused on the area of cancer-nanomedicine and developed many novel nano-systems to interfere with the complex biology of cancer. With the emergence of cancer-immunotherapy, his team also work on activating the immune system against cancer using novel nano-immunomedicines. Specific areas of research include: nanomedicines for drug -radiation resistant cancer and cancer stem cells, brain implantable nanomedicine for prolonged drug-delivery, nanoparticle-based image guided radio-wave therapy and photodynamic therapy, cancer immunotherapy using dendritic cells (DC), neo-mRNA nano-vaccines, Raman spectral imaging of cancer, application of artificial intelligence (IA) in nanomedicine and immunotherapy. He has 32 international patents (10 issued in USA/ Japan/China/Europe) and published more than 65 peer reviewed research papers in nanomedicine. Three IPs are licenced to pharma companies for commercial development. He serves as Associate Editor of the Journal: Precision Nanomedicine (European Foundation for Clinical Nanomedicine-CLINAM). He also served in the editorial board member of the journal Nanomedicine: NBM (Elsevier). He is an expert member in ‘Translational Nano-Biotechnology’ Task force, Dept. of Biotechnology, Govt of India. He is a co-founder of the bio-pharma start-up company M/s LuxMatra Innovations Pvt. Ltd, C-Camp, Bangalore.and even apply custom CSS to this text in the module Advanced settings.
