We are committed to emerge as a research group of global reach in the design and development of novel bio-materials adhering to the required norms as well as affordable alternative in dental applications 

  • To apply the contemporary techniques for the design and development of new bio-materials for dental applications meeting the requirements of bio-compatibility and the mechanical properties 
  • To perform research on design, simulation and optimization studies to arrive at material composition of bio-material comprising natural /​synthetic compounds for dental applications and patient specific prototypes
  • To model, simulate, analyze and characterize the developed bio-materials for their efficacy in dental applications
  • To evaluate and assess the new biomaterials through in-vitro, in-vivo and clinical trials 
  • To transfer developed technologies of bio-materials for commercialization and entrepreneurship
  • To disseminate knowledge on concepts and good practices of applications of bio-material for use in dental application
  • To develop and pursue joint initiatives for collaboration and partnership with Universities, Research Centres and Industries to offer solution for bio-material in dental implants
