Dr Deepak Kalaskar has a multidisciplinary background in engineering, chemistry and biology. He has special interests in surface coating technologies. He worked for 1 year after completion of Bachelor’s degree in R&D with BASF coatings Pvt Ltd. Due to his interests in biological coatings; he pursued a funded PhD at University of Manchester, UK in Amino acids modification of cellulose fibers and their effect on cellular behaviour. 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, Nanomaterials coatings for orthopaedic implants, protein nanotubes for drug delivery applications, 3D printing of cells using inkjet printing and osteochondral plug for knee repair.
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 tissue engineering.
Biomaterials, Tissue engineering, Nanotechnology, stem cell based therapies.
Surface chemical modifications and surface characterization using XPS and ToF-SIMS.
Layer by layer assembly of proteins and polymers for synthesis of micro and nanostructures for biomaterials coatings, cell tracking and drug delivery applications.
Nanomaterials coatings using Electrophoreic deposition (EPD) for orthopaedic and related applications.
Fundamental understanding of cell-protein-materials interaction and their characterisation and bio-mimicking ECM coatings.
