Dr. Chandrakanth Emani is an Associate Professor of plant molecular biology at Western Kentucky University. His current research funded by the National Science Foundation-EPSCoR program involves the utility of plant-based pharmaceutical compounds as integrative treatment options for cancer, plant bioinformatics aimed at plant molecular evolution, and phytoremediation strategies to reclaim cultivable land near oil fields. Dr. Emani has a Master’s degree in Biochemistry from Pune University, India, and a Ph.D. in Genetics and Plant Molecular Biology from Osmania University, India. During his doctoral research, he was a Junior Research Fellow of the Rockefeller Foundation and a doctoral fellow of the Hindustan Ciba-Geigy (presently Syngenta). He pursued research in plant genetic engineering as a post-doctoral fellow of the Rockefeller Foundation at the Norman Borlaug Center of Texas A&M University where he worked on plant genetic transformation of sorghum, rice, and cotton. A multi-collaborative research project at Texas A&M University involving plant molecular promoters from rice and sugarcane resulted in eleven patents from the USPTO (5), European patent office (2), Brazilian Patent office (2), and World Intellectual Organization (2).
