Biomaterials Department was established with an aim to understand the patho-physiology of scarring. Various biological markers with reference to their expression in abnormal wounds are being identified. On the other hand, biomaterial based drug delivery systems for enhanced wound healing has been of major interest which includes collagen based wound dressings. Cytotoxicity and angiogenic assays are focused for understanding the application of biomaterials.
Research activities in our Department are oriented towards
- Development of electrospun nanofibers encapsulating biomolecules for tissue regeneration.
- Alternate methods of siRNA delivery for wound healing.
- Nanoparticle synthesis and their biological applications.
- Understanding molecular mechanisms of angiogenic imbalance.
- Collagen stabilization with natural and synthetic molecules for leather application.
