Research scholar Jyotsana Priyadarshani talks about 'organ-on-a-chip' research
For over two decades, researchers at IIT Kharagpur have been working on the development of affordable, portable and remote technology in the healthcare domain. The School of Medical Science and Technology and the Microfluidics Lab at the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering have collaborated on several such projects.
In a similar work research scholar, Jyotsana Priyadarshani is pursuing her PhD in the area of “organ-on-a-chip” under the supervision of Prof. Soumen Das at the School of Medical Science & Technology and Prof. Suman Chakraborty at the Microfluidics Lab.
Her research focuses on utilizing the frugal fabrication technique and microfluidic applications to address the important features and geometrical complexities of microvasculature in vitro. Such bioengineered microfluidic platforms are potentially suitable for probing cellular dynamics as well as offering critical insights into cancer, cardiovascular diseases, offsetting the requirements of in vivo trials on animals and humans to a large extent.
