Bio-Medical Signal & Images Processing Lab
The recording and analysis of biosignals and Images have gained much more important in these recent years, which allows the medical practitioners to extract needed information for analyzing the physiological events real-time, leading to the accurate diagnosis and better medical treatment of the patients. This Lab, is used for giving hands on experience to UG, PG and Research students. In this lab we are mainly working on: (i) Digital Signal processing techniques, (ii) Image Processing techniques, and (iii) Application of Artificial Intelligence to Biomedical Engineering areas. At research level we are working to improve the disease diagnosis, and particularly interested to develop the new algorithms to improve the quality of radiological images in terms of artifact corrections, enhancement and automatic segmentation. A strong interest is arising in the field of deep learning based segmentation and medical image quality assessment..

Tissue Engineering & Biomicrofludics Lab
Research interests in Tissue Engineering and Biomicrofluidics (TEBM) Laboratory forge multidisciplinary teams covering expertise ranging from core engineering and biomaterials discovery to the in-depth understanding of human physiological systems. The primary research areas include the recreation of three-dimensional (3D) tissue constructs and functional entities of complex organs, biomaterial scaffolds, 3D bioprinting, Stem cells, biocompatibility assessment and characterization of microengineered tissue reconstructs, and testing of their physiological compatibility upon implantation in the animal models. In addition, we focus on integrating microfluidics technology with tissue engineering and implementing them in fabricating on-chip tissue and organ models. Fabrication of biomedical microelectromechanical systems (Bio-MEMs) and lab-on-a-chip platforms for low-cost point-of-care diagnostics (POCD) and biosensor development is one of our major goals
