Prof. Abhay Pandit
National University of Ireland, Ireland
Abhay Pandit is an Established Professor of Biomaterials at the National University of Ireland, Galway. He is the Scientific Director of the Centre for Research in Medical Devices (CÚRAM), a multi-disciplinary academic-industry-clinician translational research centre funded by Science Foundation Ireland (E49M). His research interests’ focus on the development of next generation of medical devices that involve targeted controlled-drug-release reservoir delivery vehicles which facilitate spatiotemporal localised sustained delivery of multiple biomolecules to target injury mechanisms at the molecular and cellular levels. These macromolecular complexes form functional interfaces between implanted devices and biological systems to endow the former with bio-responsiveness and/or biological function. He has published over 230 papers in peer reviewed journals. He is a Fellow of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative International Society and an International Fellow in Biomaterials Science and Engineering. He is an Associated Editor Biomaterials journal and on the Executive Editorial Board of Tissue Engineering.
