Price on request
Wound healing is an important research focus in our laboratory wherein different novel biodegradable membranes, scaffolds and hydrogels with the incorporation of antibacterial nanomaterials have been developed based on chitin and chitosan. The bioactivity, blood clotting properties, antibacterial activity and wound regeneration capacities of such membranes are investigated in detail. This program is also primarily funded by the Department of Science and Technology.
The program also offers clinical exposure in one of the many operation theatres of the hospital to help students develop an understanding of the medical applications of nanotechnology. In short, this is a pioneering program that aims to develop an all-round scientist and technologist with interdisciplinary specialization in three areas -- nanotechnology, biotechnology and medical sciences. The first batch of students began in August 2007.
