Dr. Seema Nandi will be presenting

Platelet mimetic strategies for the enhancement of wound healing outcomes

Dr. Nandi has been working with a diverse team to determine the extent to which PLPs on can be used longterm in wound healing. Her presentation summarizes work done by many in a collaborative effort between NC State, UNC Chapel Hill, the American Heart Institute and National Institute of Health.  This work demonstrates the importance of bio-medical engineering as an extension of traditional chemical engineering practices.  Although her work is mainly on a laboratory scale, the scale-up potential and challenges for widespread manufacture of synthetic treatment methods become immediately apparent to experienced manufacturing and R&D process engineers. 

Join us in a front end discussion of the research and come to ask the questions, that will need to be answered to put this science into practical application!

 Joint Meeting with ACS (American Chemical Society) 

Dr. Nandi obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin, where she began to specialize in the field of tissue engineering and conducted undergraduate research on the role of shear stress in cancer cell intravasation. She received her Ph.D. from the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering at North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her doctoral work primarily focused on studying the mechanical processes underlying hemostasis and on developing novel technologies for addressing clinical needs within these fields. She has been extensively involved with the Society for Biomaterials, serving as both the student representative for the Tissue Engineering Special Interest Group within the national chapter and as the President of the NC State chapter of the society. She is now working for a biotech startup company based in the Research Triangle of North Carolina, where she is continuing to develop biomaterials for the treatment of bleeding as a result of traumatic injuries and coagulopathies.
