About Cell Biology

Biomedical Engineering and Cell Biology Labs was set up at the Amritapuri campus of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham with the aim to develop Low cost Biomedical Devices and to diagnostics for the management of Diabetes & Identify Natural Product Lead molecules as Potential Modulators and Elucidation of Molecular Mechanisms involved in Impaired Wound Healing in Diabetes. Our current research focuses to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying the regulation of Matrix Metalloproteinases and oncogenic signalling systems by Natural Products.
