Biography

Dr Deepak Kalaskar has a multidisciplinary background in engineering, chemistry and biology. He worked previously as Research and Development Scientist with the German multinational company, BASF coatings Pvt Ltd. Due to his interests in biological coatings; he pursued a ORS scholarship funded PhD in the field of Biomedical Materials from the University of Manchester, UK. Following his PhD, he worked at various universities in UK and Belgium on number of developmental research projects which include high throughput culture for Embryonic Stem cells as a part of North West Stem cell Consortium, UK. Nanomaterials coatings for orthopaedic implants, protein based micro and nano particles for drug delivery applications (at Nano science Condense Matter Lab, Belgium), 3D printing of cells using inject printing, osteochondral plug for knee repair ( at ARUK Tissue Engineering Center, Newcastle).

Currently, Dr Kalaskar heads Msc course in Burns, Plastic and Reconstructive surgery at University College London (UCL) and actively involved in research on Nanotechnology and Tissue Engineering solutions for Artificial Organs such as Intracranial Stents, Breast Implants, Synthetic Nose, Ear, Skin and Bone & Tendon Tissue Engineering.
