Ratnesh Jain is associated with the Department of Chemical Engineering, Institute of Chemical Technology, Matunga, Mumbai, as UGC Assistant Professor and Ramalingaswami Fellow. His doctoral work was focused on the development and evaluation of various polymeric nanocarriers such as micelles, nanoparticles, and so on. His expertise lies in formulation and characterization of these drug delivery systems, various approaches for their targeting, and their toxicity and efficacy evaluations in animal models. Subsequently, he joined the Department of Biopharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Technology, Saarland University, Saarbrucken, as a postdoctoral fellow. Here, he has engaged in the formulation of polymeric nanoparticles using modified excipients for encapsulating and targeting hydrophobic anticancer actives. He was awarded the prestigious Alexander von Humboldt Postdoctoral Fellowship by the AvH Foundation, Germany, and completed the associated research at the Department of Drug Delivery, Helmholtz Institute for Pharmaceutical Research Saarland (HIPS), Saarbrucken, Germany. He received the DST-DFG (Government of India and Government of Germany) award to attend the meeting of Nobel laureates and young researchers in physiology and medicine in 2007 at Lindau, Germany, and was also selected as a part of Institute of Chemical Technology team to represent India at the Indo‐UK Biotechnology YES (Young Entrepreneurship Scheme) at Oxford, United Kingdom. He has been actively involved in CRS Indian chapter conferences from 2003 onward and participating in the CRS Annual Meeting from 2008 on. He previously volunteered in the Membership and Development Committee of CRS until 2013. His research interests include protein characterization, mAb formulations, biomaterials and drug delivery system. He is creative in scientific research and teaching.
