Mousumi Poddar Sarkar


·         "Nature nurturing" by field work at different ecological terrain - my passion gradually becomes profession – for exploring the truth and beauty of Nature.

·      ...brought up in a school which had introduced pheromone research in India under the leadership of renowned naturalist and scientist Prof. R.L.Brahmachary of Indian Statistical Institute (ISI) and initiated my research career with a publication in Nature, 1990. Unravelling the fact of occurrence of 2-acetyl-1-pyrroline, the elusive fragrant molecule of Indian Basmati rice in the Marking Fluid (MF) of Bengal tiger for territorial demarcation and home range maintenance has been acclaimed highly in etho-chemistry research scenario across the world.

·         Unwinding the tale of the adaptive strategy of high altitude Eastern Himalayan mosses by volatile ‘Oxylipin’ signalling molecule and the identification of 6-Methyl-5-hepten-2-one, a major compound of lemon grass oil from MF of Snow leopard of Eastern Himalaya are the recent achievements by my team.

·         I like to concentrate on integrative biology with interdisciplinary approach. In my research arena I believe in three “F”s – FOREST, FORMULATE and FIGURE OUT.
