Overview

The Nanobiotechnology programme is focused on biomedical nanotechnology, wherein students explore the advanced applications in the biomedical area. Such applications include new implant technologies, regenerative engineering, new nanomedicines to combat cancer and drug resistance, targeted medicines for treatment with reduced side effects, diagnostic technologies using nanomaterials etc. The course covers in-depth nanomaterials and their properties, nanosystems design, the physics and chemistry of nanomaterials and applications of nanotechnology to the biomedical area, including engineering of scaffolds and the engineering of devices at the nanoscale for diagnostics and treatments. The program also offers clinical exposure in one of the many operation theatres of the hospital to help students develop an understanding of the medical applications of nanotechnology. This is a pioneering program that aims to develop an all-round scientist and technologist with interdisciplinary specialization in three areas– nanotechnology, biotechnology and medical sciences.

The two-year M.Tech program focusing on Nanobiotechnology, is designed for students to explore in-depth, the processing of nanomaterials suitable for biomaterial applications and the development of drug delivery systems, tissue engineered devices, and diagnostic tools for diseases detection. Applications include new implant technologies, regenerative engineering, new nanomedicines to combat cancer and drug resistance, targeted medicines for treatment with reduced side effects and diagnostic technologies such as applications of nano-enhanced laser diagnostics and therapies for cancer screening. The research school is a Thematic Unit of Excellence under the Nanomission program of the Government of India. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to pursue their Ph.D dissertation at Amrita School of Nanosciences & Molecular Medicine. ASNSMM has a full-fledged placement cell that assists students in developing competencies and employability skills in order to become part of top-tier companies.
