Manish Biyani's Biography

Manish Biyani, Associate Professor, Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology

Dr Manish Biyani received the ME (2001) in Bioengineering and PhD (2004) in Biological Science from Saitama University, Japan. Acquiring higher education in Japan, Dr Biyani built a career in the field of Biotechnology and was invited as Research Scientist to join two major national projects of JST (Japan Science and Technology), CREATE and CREST, for 10 years from 2004 to 2013, where Dr Biyani used nanobio-device tools to develop high-speed molecular evolution reactor for screening novel and highly-functional bio-molecules and bio-drugs. Dr Biyani also appointed as staff (Res. Assistant Professor) in the Department of Bioengineering at The University of Tokyo from 2009-2013. In 2014, Dr Biyani is invited to join Hokuriku Life Science Cluster (HLSC) project and appointed as staff (Res. Associate Professor) in Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology.

Along the way, Dr Biyani built and headed many new startups and platforms for India-Japan collaboration as founding director of Biyani Group of Colleges and Biyani BioSolutions Pvt Ltd, in India. Dr Biyani has pursued a career in basic research in biotechnology and its extended application in various fields including medicine and Healthcare. His major areas of research interest include Molecular Evolutionary Engineering, Low-cost molecular diagnostics, Bio-drug discovery, DNA-based nano architecture, Functional Proteomics and Biosensors. Dr Biyani is the recipient of JB OUP award from International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and The photopolymer science and technology award from Photopolymer society Japan.

This talk will introduce peptide aptamer-based biosensor, so-called peptasensor, for making undetectable sensing possible for routine and fast-tracking molecular diagnostics. Small peptide chains, which can arrange themselves into tridimensional functional structures, exhibit a smaller binding footprint allowing for a more thorough and precise interrogation of the target molecule. We engineered these peptide chains by an iterative process of in vitro selection procedure and applied to recognize certain biomarkers with high affinity and specificity. The applicability of these peptide aptamer to fabricate the new age of integrated electronic biosensors to detect unreachable target molecules will be addressed in this presentation.
