Prof. Hari Niwas Mishra and his research scholars Monalisha Pattnaik and Dr. Mousumi Ghosh from the Food Chemistry and Technology Laboratory at the Dept of Agricultural and Food Engineering have received the Gandhian Young Technological Innovation (GYTI) Award 2020 for developing a a low-cost polyunsaturated, antioxidant-rich vegetable oil powder which will keep a check on fat-induced low-density lipoprotein or harmful blood cholesterol derived from regular food intake. The team has also developed a novel process to protect the lipids from oxidation by microencapsulating with appropriate materials, which will address the issues of rancidity and reduced shelf-life under severe environmental conditions.
Another research group consisting of Prof Prasanta Kumar Das and researcher Sumanta Laha from the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering and Prof. Indranil Ghosh from the Cryogenic Engineering Centre have been awarded the prestigious SITARE – Gandhian Young Technological Innovation Award 2020 for developing Automated Cardiovascular Replicator for online assessment of cardiac medical devices and prosthetics. The device is capable of creating life-like simulations in cardiac failure cases due to various diseases and tests the performance of implantable devices and prosthetics such as Ventricular assist devices.
