Welcome to Polymers & Biomaterials Research Group
Our research programme is emphasized on the creation of new knowledge at the interface of chemistry-and-biology by empowering the remarkable macromolecular science (polymers). The research programs are designed to impart training to next generation undergraduate and graduate students with equal importance to synthetic knowledge (organic/polymers) and biomedical application.
