International conference on

24th-28th July, 2018 | Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore

Plenary Lecture

Ashutosh Chilkoti, Duke University, North Carolina

SBAOI - Chandra P Sharma Awardee

Ashutosh Chilkoti is the Alan L. Kaganov Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University. His research in biomolecular engineering and biointerface science focuses on the development of new molecular tools and technologies that borrow from molecular biology, protein engineering, polymer chemistry and surface science that we then exploit for the development of applications that span the range from bioseparations, plasmonic biosensors, low-cost clinical diagnostics, and drug delivery.
