Nanomedicines: physico-chemical and biological studies

Nanomedicines are based on nanoparticles and other nanostructures. They have become important in drug delivery in recent times, so they find increasing use in modern medicinal systems. But also important are nanoparticles, nanostructures and nanocrystals in traditional and alternative medicinal systems, which our group has been studying with modern tools of nanotechnology and biology. The aim of this project is to characterise and propose mechanism of action of such nanomedicines by physical, chemical and biological techniques like TEM, SEM, DLS, PCR, cell culture, and the like. Included will be studies with mammalian cell lines and zebra fish. Candidate must have excellent experimental skills, biostatistics knowledge, ability to use sophisticated instrumentation, and computer skills.
