Other Affiliation: Chemical & Biological Engineering


Research Interests:

Dr. Yadav’s research group – the BioFoundry – utilizes metabolic & enzyme engineering to investigate and customize novel biosynthetic enzymes that can convert biomass-derived feedstocks into better fuels, pharmaceuticals and value-added chemicals. They also extend these principles to the design and development of unique bioremediation strategies to rehabilitate the water quality in and around industrial zones. In addition to green engineering, the BioFoundry also pursues medical biotechnology research, and they are working extensively on infectious disease drug discovery, drug delivery and tissue engineering. Dr. Yadav’s group actively collaborates with local start-ups, industry, academic groups and medical research laboratories, and our work is fostering innovation in a strategic domain for Canada.
