A start-up, Heal-agnostic Innovations Pvt. Ltd., has been initiated by the PI, for efficient transition of innovative technologies into marketable products. Click here for details about this initiative.

Deep Wound Healing Scaffold: We have designed a novel biomimetic fully biodegradable scaffold that can regenerate and heal full thickness wounds without any follow-up surgery for epidermal sealing with skin graft. Efficacy of the prototype scaffold in wound healing has been verified on rat wounds. The invention has been filed for patenting (Indian Patent Office - application number 201911007235). Salient features of this invention are:

  • Provides one stop solution for healing deep wounds
  • User friendly
  • Cost effective
  • Conformable to wound site and self adhesive to the wound bed
  • Secondary dressing optional
  • Faster healing

Burn Wound Healing Scaffold: Our burn wound healing scaffold has a unique design capable of supporting the three crucial stages of burn wound healing, namely, reactive, reparative and reconstructive. The design of the scaffold allows protection from bacterial infection, the sole reason behind high rate of severe burn related mortality. In addition, the scaffold provides scar free healing by reducing inflammation and efficient tissue reconstruction. Efficacy of the prototype scaffold in established in burn wound model of rat. A patent has been applied for this invention as well (Indian Patent Office - application number 201911026834). Salient features of this invention are:

  • Provides one stop solution for severe burn wounds
  • Repeated wound dressing, an unavoidable traumatizing experience associated with severe burns, eliminated
  • Conformable to wound site and self adhesive to the wound bed
  • Inherent protection from bacterial infection
  • Scar free regeneration

Our specific Research interests


1. Wound healing

  • We aim at designing completely biodegradable scaffold that can provide the precise template for simultaneously regeneration of all the layers of skin without any need for completion surgery.
  • Our scaffold designs are bio-inspired by the microarchitecture, physical and mechanical properties of skin tissue.
  • The scaffold designs are also tailored to meet the specific requirements of specific types of wounds they are meant to heal.

Our Achievements

  • Design and fabrication of a biomimetic smart regenerative scaffold for deep wounds
  • Simultaneous regeneration of the entire skin with this scaffold without any skin grafting
  • Scaffold microarchitecture, physical and mechanical properties resemble the skin tissue it heals
  • Prototype for deep wound healing scaffold ready (Indian Patent Office - application number 201911007235)
  • Prototype for severe burn wound healing scaffold ready (Indian Patent Office - application number 201911026834)

2. Temporary Fracture Fixing Accessories Orthopaedic Applications

  • We aim at developing completely biodegradable magnesium based temporary fracture fixing accessories for orthopaedic application
  • Mg-HA based composites developed at our laboratory has improved degradation and mechanical stability in simulated human body fluids when compare to pure Mg
  • Our specific implant designs like differential HA layered composites (FGM) based on MG/HA have shown tremendous potential
  • The problem of biomechanical stability of Mg-HA composites is also tailored

Our Achievements

  • Design and fabrication of composites and FGM composites via conventional and spark plasma sintering
  • Significant degradation and mechanical properties compared to natural human
  • Biocompatibility in terms of cell adhesion , cell viability, protein adhesion and ALP activity has been achieved significantly
  • The project was funded by DSTSB/SO/HS/138/2013
  • Peer Review articles- 8
    No of PhD – 2
    M.Tech Thesis- 5

3. Drug Release Implant for Orthopedic Applications

  • We aim at developing drug release orthopedic implants, which can prevent infection and maintains osteointegration with the bone simultaneously.
  • Surface modification of acetabular cup liner (UHMWPE) and femoral stem have been done through chemical etching and plasma sprayed HA coating processes respectively, in order to create pores and impregnated with drug contained polymer.
  • Implants have shown sustained drug release with excellent antibacterial activity, osteocompatablity and superior mechanical and tribological properties.

Our Achievements

  • Development of polymer based drug eluting orthopedic implants project funded by DST India, Grant. No. SB/FTP/ETA-0184/2013.
  • Surface modified metallic orthopedic implant for sustained drug release project funded by DST India, Grant. No. DST/TSG/AMT/2015/264/G.
  • PhD’s: 2 ( one is completed and other pursuing).
  • Articles: 6, Patents:1 (Indian patent no: 201711024735).
  • Magazine on “Multifunctional Surface Treatment for Orthopedic Implant” has been published in medical health care times.

4. Neural Tissue Engineering

  • Our group works on designing scaffold for peripheral nerve regeneration
  • The existing neural scaffolds in clinical use and the ones reported in research papers provide only extra-cellular matrix and physical guidance for cell adhesion and axonal growth
  • Provision for electrical guidance is not available with any scaffolds known so far
  • Our studies are focused on improving cell adhesion and providing electrical guidance for axonal regeneration for which we are currently exploring different second phase reinforced polymeric matrices
