It is my pleasure to greet you as the head of the Department of Bioscience and Biomedical Engineering (BSBME) at IIT Bhilai. The department has highly accomplished faculty addressing impactful research topics that include protein folding and stability, biophysics, bioinformatics, macromolecular simulations, infectious and Alzheimer’s disease, tissue engineering, drug delivery, cancer biology: MRI and optical imaging, biomicrofluidics, artificial organs, artificial skin fabrication, drug diffusion through skin, targeted drug delivery, biosensors, lab-on-a chip devices, blood flow in microchannels and computational and system biology. The department is well equipped with state-of-the-art facilities in the field.
The interface between biology and engineering as incorporated in BSBME is one of the exciting fields of the 21st century. We aim to inculcate cutting-edge research in the field along with world-class teaching in both the MTech and PhD programs. We shall train the students to tackle real-world biomedical and biotechnological problems. Several new job opportunities are existing and are expected to evolve dramatically with focus on human health. Some of the biggest players include Johnson & Johnson, Sun Pharma, Cipla, Syngene and GSK, and medical technology and imaging companies, such as Siemens, Philips. Hospitals also require experts in this area to help develop and improve medical devices. We have tremendously strong partners, as the BSBME faculty members actively participate in collaboration such as with AIIMS Raipur.
The department welcomes admission to the MTech & PhD programs. For any information, please feel free to contact us via email.
