Hi – I am Suman Pahal, joined Praveen’s Team as a Post-doctoral fellow. I have completed my M.Sc. (Biotechnology) and M. Tech (Nanotechnology) with a gold medal award for the best academic record. I started my research career as a project trainee at National Physical Laboratory, Delhi, focusing on developing polymer-hybrid thin films for various applications. Following my interests in translational research, I joined interdisciplinary PhD at Centre for Nanoscience and Engineering, IISc. My doctoral research was focused on designing a novel technique for probing bio-molecular transport in polymer thin films which have important implications for tissue engineering and targeted drug-delivery. I also worked in several other collaborative projects for designing antibacterial-surfaces and for understanding drug-release kinetics across polymeric nanocapsules. Here, in Praveen’s lab my research project is to design polymer-based dissolvable microneedles for transdermal sustained delivery of vaccines.
In my free time, I like playing badminton and spending refreshing time at my balcony garden. https://scholar.google.co.in/citations?hl=en&user=CimorloAAAAJ
