Our faculty, recently, has entered into tie-ups with renowned scientists from universities in Germany. One such tie-up is with Prof. Dr. Heinrich Lang, Department of Inorganic Chemistry, Technische Universität Chemnitz, Germany. This group is the hallmark of quality research in the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology. The collaboration not only facilitates the breakthrough scientific activities and generates high impact publications of common research interest but also benefits the doctoral students to get an exposure to laboratories in Germany. Research collaboration has also been initialized with Prof. Antje J. Baeumner, Institute of Analytical Chemistry, Chemo- and Biosensors, University of Regensburg, Germany. Prof. Baeumner’s group is actively working in the area of optical, electrochemical sensors and microTotal Analysis Systems for biomedical, food and environmental applications. Our faculty, being a Humboldt fellow, gets regular opportunities for short term research assignments at various other German Institutes and Universities.
The key area of research of our faculty is fabrication of nanobiosensors and nanocarriers for diagnosis and therapeutic applications, respectively using dendrimers functionalized magnetic nanoparticles. Besides this, we are also actively involved in development of energy storage devices using nanomaterials
