The Patra Lab

Research Summary

Hirak Lab is exploring nanoscale science, technologies and materials for advanced healthcare applications. We are a group of enthusiastic researchers from diverse cross-disciplinary background united together to enjoy the fun in understanding nanoscience and exploring through dedicated scientific research. In our group we welcome and encourage disruptive innovation. We are involved in synthesis of new nanomaterials and chemistry for engineering their physical and chemical properties for biomedical applications.We are developing and studying molecular strategies that can help us to conceal a drug while transporting and program to deliver the drug step by step. We are involved in developing tools for deliver the drug specifically up to the tertiary level (organelle). We are developing nano toolbox for disease specific requirements. The toolboxes are aimed to develop with theranostic capacity (capacity to combine diagnosis and therapy).
