Bio-electro-chemistry is an interdisciplinary subject which falls at the cross-road of basic electrochemistry and its application in biochemistry, analytical chemistry, medicinal chemistry, bio-energy devices and biosensors. The subject has a broad horizon and myriad of applications; yet the governing principles are the basic laws of electrochemistry. Here we will be discussing the basic principles of electrochemistry and the myriad of applications of these principals in biology with special reference to bio-sensors, bio-fuel cells and diagnostics.

Prof. Mainak Das
Prof.Mainak Dasis a faculty of IIT Kanpur India in the department of biological sciences & bioengineering since April 26 2010. He did his bachelors degree (1989-1994) in agriculture from College of Agriculture Indore. Thereafter he did his post graduate degree (1994-1997) in animal physiology from National Dairy Research Institute Karnal India. Following his post graduate studies, he worked as researcher in IISc Bangalore India (1997-1999), University of Neuchatel, Switzerland (1999-2000), University of Clemson, USA (2000-2004) and in University of Central Florida, USA (2004-2010). He did his doctoral studies from College of Medicine of University of Central Florida (2004-2008), while working as a full time employee of the university. He introduced the regular physiology course for the PG students in IIT Kanpur in 2011. He has wide interest in physiology, sensors, energy and bioelectronics and maintains an active research team at IT Kanpur, India. Prof. Das has been working on cell culture technologies, serum free medium development and defined cell culture systems for last 20 years. He has expertise in long term culturing of excitable cells. His doctoral thesis is a complex problem of modern cell culture technology, titled:‘Tissue Engineering The Motoneuron To Muscle Segment Of The Stretch Reflex Arc Circuit Utilizing Micro-fabrication,Interface Design And Defined Medium Formulation’.

Please check the form for more details on the cities where the exams will be held, the conditions you agree to when you fill the form etc.
CRITERIA TO GET A CERTIFICATE
Average assignment score = 25% of average of best 3 assignments out of the total 4 assignments given in the course. Exam score = 75% of the proctored certification exam score out of 100
Final score = Average assignment score + Exam score
YOU WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR A CERTIFICATE ONLY IF AVERAGE ASSIGNMENT SCORE >=10/25 AND EXAM SCORE >= 30/75. If one of the 2 criteria is not met, you will not get the certificate even if the Final score >= 40/100.
Certificate will have your name, photograph and the score in the final exam with the breakup.It will have the logos of NPTEL and IIT Kanpur .It will be e-verifiable at nptel.ac.in/noc.
Only the e-certificate will be made available. Hard copies will not be dispatched.
