Bio-Interface & Environmental Engineering Lab
We modify surfaces using various Self-Assembled Monolayers (SAMs) and study their interactions with water, bio macromolecules i.e. polymers, proteins and cells.
We investigate the adsorption behavior and properties of various adsorbed proteins on surfaces with different wettabilities by forming mono, mixed and hybrid SAMs. We study the role of surface chemistry at the nanometer scale on aggregation of various therapeutic proteins.
We design nanomaterials (nanocomposites) and investigate their intrinsic and extrinsic properties for broad biomedical applications particularily in the field of Nanoantibiotics, Drug delivery, Hyperthermia and Tissue engineering.
Our group focuses on 3Rs. Reduce waste generation, recycle the treated waste and reuse waste as by-product or recover energy from the waste.
