Welcome to NanoBios Lab, IIT Bombay

The NanoBios Lab is an integral part of the Department of Bioscience and Bioengineering at IIT Bombay.

Our research is focused on three main areas, Sensors & Devices, Cancer and Nanoenabled Orthopedic applications.
We explore the material properties, characterizing nanostructured materials to study and apply the use of nanotechnology to advance in the healthcare areas. Examples include Development of nanostructured dye encapsulated polymer sensor for ions detection, Photothermal therapy for cancer using gold nanostructures, Development of diagnostic technique for orthopedic infections.
Our work is interdisciplinary in nature and combines biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, chemistry, and materials science.
