DBT Workshop on “Genome Engineering”
Metals, non-metals, oxides and composites are used as medical biomaterials to augment or support the functioning of various body parts. They have to be biocompatible, prevent bacterial adhesion, perform as desired and should not cause adverse reactions to the host. Selecting the correct material(s) for the intended use for the required duration is a challenge and it requires a knowledge of material chemistry, engineering and human biology.
This is an interdisciplinary workshop intended to expose research scholars, clinicians, dentists, scientists and industry personnel to lectures by experts in the field as well as expose them to laboratory facilities available for carrying out research in the area of materials used for biomedical applications.
Who should attend?
Students, medical/dental graduate, postgraduate or research scholar, faculty and industry personnel.
Lectures in the morning by faculty and surgeons and visit to ‘Medical materials lab’ and ‘Bioengineering & Drug design lab’ in the afternoon
- Materials used in biomaterial applications
- Medical Biofilm and infection
- Characterization techniques
- Issues and problems associated with materials
