About National Institute of Immunology Delhi

Our research groups at Product Development Cell have been working on the translational aspect of immunology and modern biology since last 27 years. In the initial years, we were instrumental in developing the immunodiagnostic kit, leprosy vaccine and recombinant fermentation process for the production of proteins. We have published the very first report of highest expression of recombinant protein in E. coli on Indian studies (J. Biotechnology, 1999). In recent years, we are working mostly on protein refolding from inclusion bodies, development of polymeric nanoparticle-based vaccine delivery system and design of polymer scaffold for tissue engineering applications. The research of our groups is well documented with 120 research papers, 9 book chapters and 30 patents at NII. A couple of technologies developed by us has been transferred to industry for commercialization.
