Dr. Promita Bhattacherjee

Research Fellow

School of Bioengineering

 

Research Interests: 

Promita joined the Ahearne lab at TCBE in May, 2017 as a Postdoctoral researcher to design scaffolds for corneal regeneration.She obtained her Bachelor and Master Degree in Biomedical Engineering from West Bengal University of Technology, India and Jadavpur University, India respectively. She received her PhD from Materials Science Centre of the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India. Her doctoral research work was pursued on development of potential non-mulberry silk fibroin based bioactive, bioresorbable nanofibrous scaffold for bone tissue regeneration.

Research expertise and interests broadly revolve around the tissue engineering scaffolds,including design, fabrication and functionalization, and investigating their interactions with the cells, including stem cells, both at cellular and molecular scale as well as in vivo implementation.
