The Department of Biotechnology, School of Applied Sciences had organized the international gust talk on "Poly Unsaturated Fatty acids [PUPA] balance and genetic implidations for the treatment of inflammatory conditions such as COPD and Covid 19" by Dr. Kothapalli Sesha Durga Kumar, Associate Professor of Paediatrics, Dell Medical School, The University of Texas, USA on 15.6.2022 via off line mode. The session started with the Introduction of resource person by Prof. BR Shilpa, Deputy Director, School of Applied Sciences,. The students of 2°' Semester M.Sc. Biotechnology, 2'd Semester MSc. Microbial Technology and 616 semester B.Sc. BBG attended the session. The session was very informative which provided the insights of Fatty acids strategies aiming to how to protect inflammatory conditions such as COPD and Covid19. The multi-dimensional prospects of biotechnology were made understood to students, enabling the efficacious application of this science domain to strengthen the cardiovascular diseases, liver toxicological effect and different type's drugs, medical health etc. Later the students were assigned with the task to come up with the concepts relating the applicative potential of bioteChnology to intervene and solve the issues discussed. The session provided the practical understanding of fatty acids imbalance to students which were a stepping stone for students to initiate the cardiovascular disease. Lastly the session ended with the vote of thanks delivered by Dr.R.Senthilkumar (Associate Professor, Dept of Biotechnology, SOAS, REVA University).
