Editorial Board Member - JMSN
Chandra received his Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) in Chemical Engineering in 2002 from University of Madras, India. During his undergraduate studies at University of Madras, he graduated with “First Class with Distinction”, equivalent of Summa Cum Laude or Top 1% of the class. In December 2005, he received a M.S. in Chemical Engineering, followed by a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering, both from Stevens Institute of Technology, New Jersey. Based on his outstanding research achievement during my PhD studies, he was awarded the Exxon Mobil Outstanding PhD Dissertation Award at Stevens Institute of Technology. Later he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the department of biomedical engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. Since then he has been an Excellence in Science Post Doctoral Fellow at Ethicon, a Johnson and Johnson Company.
Over the last 10 years, I have worked on several areas of research, primarily focused on regenerative medicine. I have developed several novel classes of biomaterials which are biocompatible and can be readily degraded in the body and fabricated into 3-dimensional structures that mimic human tissues to enhance repair and regeneration of lost tissues. I have been developing three-dimensional (3D) scaffolds to mimic the extracellular matrix for tissue engineering as well as drug delivery vehicles for controlled release of biological factors or cells. I have also developed several nano-structured systems for a variety of biomedical applications, including, drug delivery, bacterial attachment prevention, and materials development for stem cell delivery and matrix remodeling.
