Research interests in our group include development of novel polymeric materials, blends and composites, their structure-property-processing relationships with a special focus on biomedical applications. For the last few years, our efforts have been focused at developing novel value added applications for the textile silk material. We have published several research papers and filed multiple patents on microstructure of silk fibroin, novel and unique processing protocols and modification of silk fibroin surfaces. Our work has also resulted in a technology start-up BiolMed Innovations Pvt. Ltd., which is commercializing bone graft substitutes based on silk fibroin. We have also been actively involved in information research and technology assessment projects.
