Nanobios Lab

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. Our interdisciplinary work combines biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, chemistry, and materials science. We have industrial collaborations and our products focus on healthcare of developing nations. Our dedicated team of researchers have received many awards also due to their innovative work.
