We take bioresources as inspiration to design and synthesize our functional nanomaterials (carbon nanomaterials, fluorescent nanomaterials, metallic nanomaterials, polymeric nanomaterials, nanoemulsions etc.) and biomaterials (nanocellulose, lignin nanotubes etc.).  We are a group of interdisciplinary people and focussed towards;

(a) Development of anti-amyloidogenic and fibril destabilization nanomaterials and their mechanism studies to combat neurodegeneration

(b) Anti-bacterial/anti-biofilm nanomaterials and their mechanism studies to combat antibiotic resistance

(c) Nanozymes as Point of Care (PoC) diagnostics for responsive biomedical applications, biosensing and immunoassay

(d) Nanomaterial-Protein/Cell interactions and their implications in determining the efficacy of nanomedicine

(e)  Nanotechnological interventions to enhance the bioavailability of bioactive
