Kaushik Chatterjee, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Materials Engineering and Centre for Biosystems Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India 

Bone disorders resulting from disease and trauma are a major health care burden worldwide. This has motivated the development of biomaterials for replacement and regeneration of the bone tissue. In Chatterjee’s group, they work on engineering materials for use in biomedical devices and as scaffolds for bone tissue regeneration encompassing a variety of materials including metals, polymers and composites. Chatterjee’s colleagues have developed several nanoscale strategies to enhance the mechanical performance and biological response to materials.
