WORK AT A GLANCE

Our research group is currently working in the areas of theranostics applications of nanoscale materials which include study of anti-bacterial activity of metal nanoparticles, bioimaging by using fluorescent metal nanoclusters, development of optical biosensors for detection of bacteria and cancer markers. We are also developing smart nanocarriers for targeted drug delivery.



Current Research Areas

• Study of anti-bacterial activity by novel nanoscale materials

• Development of novel theranostic materials.

• In-silico study of interactions of nanoscale materials with bio-macromolecules.
