Dr. Kanthi Kiran Kondepudi is working as a Scientist, Food & Nutrition Biotechnology, Division of National Agri-Food Biotechnology Institute, India. His research goal is to develop novel functional foods that could improve overall metabolic health. His work involves whole grains and their bioactives (proteins, dietary fibers, prebiotics and polyphenols); ingredients from spices and probiotics that could beneficially modulate gut microflora and contribute for the prevention and management of obesity and associated comorbidities. High-fat diet induced obese rodent models, nutrigenomic and metagenomic approaches for evaluating efficacy of bioactive ingredients and functional foods are being employed in their studies.
