Abstract:
Purdue University's Bindley Bioscience and Birck Nanotechnology centers will lead an international research symposium on Thursday (June 11) focused on advancements in nanomedicine and cellular engineering.

Purdue centers partner with Indian researchers for nanomedicine, cellular biology symposium

WEST LAFAYETTE, IN | Posted on June 11th, 2009

Presentations are planned by researchers from Purdue, Notre Dame and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and partner institution the Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology in Hyderabad, India.

Registration is encouraged for the daylong event, which will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Discovery Park's Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship, Room 121. To register, call 765-494-2276 or e-mail Luanne Ludwig of the Bindley Bioscience Center at

The group from the Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology includes director Lalji Singh and leading researchers Gopal Pande, N. Madhusudhana Rao, and Ch. Mohan Rao.

During their visit to campus, the Indian researchers will meet with leading Purdue researchers in cellular biology, chemistry, flow cytometry, nanotechnology and biosensing, in addition to Purdue administrators in technology commercialization. Tours of Purdue's Discovery Park and the Purdue Research Park also are planned.

Event co-organizer Pankaj Sharma, associate director of international affairs and operations for Purdue's Discovery Park, said the symposium will focus on research efforts to develop multifunctional nanoprobes and photonic structures for sensing as well as targeted and trackable nanomaterials for medical treatment and disease prevention. The researchers also will examine the potential to commercialize these nano devices and biosensors that can help diagnose and treat rare diseases.

The symposium is a funded partnership between Purdue and Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology. The collaborating institutions are the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Notre Dame, and National Institute of Interdisciplinary Science and Technology and Indian Institute of Chemical Technology.
