Prof. Absar Ahmad has made pioneering and key contributions to the fields of bio-nano-science and technology which have received high international acclaim amongst peers. Most notably, his entire volume of work has been developed and done in India. His work is noteworthy for its content of innovation and discovery based on imagination, keen observation and application. It has an underlying theme of imaginative implementation of environmentally friendly, green chemistry, room temperature biological and bioinspired methods to emerging areas of modern science with multidisciplinary applicability. In particular, his works on bioinspired synthesis of metal, semiconductor and oxide nanosystems using fungal and plant extract media and related studies on elucidation and control of the biomolecular processes and mechanisms are highly cited. His recent works on anticancerous drug extraction from endophytic fungi, and their immobilization on nanosystems for drug delivery applications are expected to have significant impact on emerging field of nanomedicine. He has co-authored many papers in high impact journals and has obtained a number of national and international patents. Prof. Absar has been conferred with several prestigious awards which include the DBT-Tata Innovation fellowship, VASVIK Industrial Award, Materials Research Society of India (MRSI) Medal, CSIR-National Chemical Laboratory: Scientist of the Year, etc.
