The primary funding for the Centre for Nanotechnology is for Tissue Engineering and Stem Cell Research, from the Department of Science and Technology, under the Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Initiative of the Government of India. As part of this project, research has been undertaken on the processing of biodegradable scaffolds with chemical and structural biofunctionality so as to be cell inductive, conductive and proliferative. Primary focus is on bone tissue engineering using stem cells.
The Centre has developed a novel multi-scale biodegradable polymeric scaffold consisting of both micro and nanofibers, through the technique of electrospinning. This scaffold provides the necessary macroporosity for cell conduction and unique nanostructures that mimic the extracellular matrix, for cell attachment as shown in the figures above.
