Dr. Mukty Sinha is working as Assistant Professor in the Department of Medical Devices, National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research-Ahmedabad (NIPER-A), India. She is actively involved in development of novel medical implants systems specially ocular, cardiovascular and synovial joint utilizing various synthetic and natural polymers. She emphasizes the use of carbon nanomaterials to modify the polymeric physical and chemical nature. Her research group has developed prototype for cardiac stents and corneal implant. She is also extending her research towards diagnostics. One of her research focus is on development of cholesterol biosensor for the diagnosis of cardiac and liver diseases. She has supervised many MS (Pharm) and Ph.D students and has a number of peer reviewed publications. Previously, she did her Ph.D from Indian Institute of Technology, Varanasi. During her Ph.D research she designed a new composite material for fast healing of infected and lacerating wound. Before that she completed her M.Tech in Pharmaceutical Biotechnology from NIPER, Mohali and Bachelors in Pharmaceutical Sciences from Manipal University, Karnataka, India.
concepts of material science and biology to design medical implants mainly for cardiovascular, orthopedic and ocular applications; applications of biodegradable polymers and their interactions with nanomaterials with respect to biological system.
