  1. Optical Diagnosis of cancers using blood urine and sputum 

We are studying Optical Biopsy of Breast cancer tissue. Varieties of optical methods are used currently for the early detection of breast cancer. They include Fluorescence Emission Spectra (FES) and Synchronous Fluorescence Spectra (SFS) a very promising technique due to its simplicity and reasonable reliability. Secondly our research led to the discovery of lung cancer biomarker by synchronous fluorescence excitation spectroscopy of blood plasma and sputum. Thirdly we are detecting and diagnosis of Prostate Cancer by autofluorescence analysis of certain set of biomarkers in urine. We are also developing methods to differentiate benign from the malignant tissue and also to do spectral grading of malignancy similar to Gleason Index.

  1. Nanoparticle-based targeted drug delivery

The prime focus of my research is to investigate the toxicity caused by morphologically different nanostructures obtained by annealing at various annealing temperatures. Smart nanomaterials are a very promising class of nanomaterials, and their properties can be controlled by altering their size, morphology, or other relevant characteristics. The samples were grown by the co-precipitation technique. Toxicity-dependent parameters were assessed in different cell models after annealing at different temperature. After the overall characterization, an analysis of toxicity caused by changes in the nanostructure morphology was tested in different cell models using a neutral red assay and confocal microscopy. The feasibility of using nanoparticles/nanomaterials for PDT was assessed. Empirical modelling was applied to corroborate the experimental results obtained from assessing cell viability losses and reactive oxygen species.

 

  1. Laser induced enhancement of energy storage and conversion properties of embedded double metal sulfides in three-D graphene

Among the green energy resources, renewable energy is the best solution to the both problems. Recently, development of electrochemical process for synthesis of energy storage and conversion devices such as supercapacitors, lithium ion batteries, electro and photo-assisted water splitting and solar cells have gained great attention. Although, the efficiency of these devices have been limited as they have already reached the intrinsic limit of most of the known materials used in these technologies. In order to reduce the cost and to improve the performances of these devices by utilizing the available resources present in the country, it is essential to investigate novel materials with various architectures that display best performances while exploiting their unique features such as high surface area, good electronic and ionic conductivity and unusual size effects along with compositional variants. In this regard, metal sulfides have proved to be the suitable new material for energy storage devices due to its high electronic conductivity as compared to their corresponding metal oxides. By utilizing Sulphur oxides, there is a room with other combinations to enhance the efficiency and durability of electrochemical based energy storage and conversion devices.  In the present project we will carry out investigation on development of energy storage and conversion devices using double metal Sulphur embedded in 3D graphene. We believed that the synthesized of double metal sulfides nanostructures with optimum morphology can accommodate large strain without pulverization, and can also display fast electron transport, fast ion diffusion making them an excellent choice as electrode materials for several types of energy storages and conversion devices. Moreover, we believe that their electrochemical performance will be further enhanced by synthesizing their nanocomposites with various highly conductive metal oxides and high surface area carbon based materials like graphene.
