Welcome to Microbeonline.com. I am Tankeshwar Acharya. I am working as an Assistant Professor and Microbiologist at the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Patan Academy of Health Sciences, Lalitpur, Nepal.
My life partner Nisha Rijal is supporting me in the maintenance and moderation of this website. She worked as a Microbiologist at National Public Health Laboratory, the national reference laboratory of the government of Nepal, for almost 12 years. She is now a consultant at Family Health International (FHI) Nepal.
I have completed my Master’s (M.Sc) in Medical Microbiology with distinction from Tribhuvan University Nepal, the largest and oldest University in Nepal.
During off-hours at Patan Academy of Health Sciences, I guide students of Masters in Medical Microbiology at National College.
Blogging is my passion, I started blogging in 2008. I have co-founded Nepal’s first comprehensive educational portal: edusanjal.com, which is now Nepal’s No. 1 Educational website and helps millions of Nepalese students with college/course guidance and provides them regular updates about scholarships, educational events, education news, etc., for which in 2011 we got World Summit Youth Award for the Category Education for All.
I have also co-founded edupatra.com, which offers education news, views, and stories in the Nepali language. Since late 2022, I have headed the content management team at FoodDetail, a food & nutrition site.
I am planning for my Ph.D. study. My research interest includes but is not limited to host-pathogen interaction, immune defense mechanism, microbial drug resistance, etc.
