Subhash C. Minocha joined the University of New Hampshire as assistant professor in 1974 after receiving Ph.D. from University of Washington, Seattle. Since 1985, he has been a professor of Plant Biology and Genetics. During my tenure at UNH, he has been involved in teaching, research and outreach activities and has developed strong international collaborations. He has been the Chair of Botany and Plant Pathology and Director of Biology at UNH for a combined total of 14 years. His research has evolved with changing technologies from plant physiology to plant molecular biology and biotechnology, and now into molecular basis of metabolic regulation using the techniques of transcriptomics and metabolomics. His teaching is mostly in the areas of biotechnology and genetic engineering with a special emphasis on bringing the applications and implications of biotechnology to the public. He has a special interest in the latter aspect of my teaching through a variety of outreach programs involving interactions with high school teachers and students and presentations at public forums. Project SMART (www.smart.unh.edu) and the Junior Science and Humanities Symposium – www.unh.edu/nnejshs) are two example of this interest in pre-college education.
He has more than 100 peer-reviewed publications and three (edited) books to my credit. I currently teach courses in “Biotechnology and Society” for Honors students, “Lab Techniques in Plant Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology”, “Cell Culture” and “Techniques in Plant Physiology and Biochemistry”.
