Jaya Vejayan has completed his PhD from University Malaya, a premier university in Malaysia. In his MSc he was involved in isolating bioactive compounds from the medicinal plant, Ipomea pes caprae, known to be an antitoxin to jellyfish toxins. While in his PhD he used proteomics to study proteins in various snake venoms in Malaysia. Accordingly, he merged both of the knowledge together to derive the 2DE guided purification technique. He has published in a number of publications mainly relevant to the field of toxinology and remained focused in furthering investigations in the use of snake venom for biotechnology purposes.
