About the Workshop
Exceptional features of nanofibers provide enormous potential in the field of healthcare applications. Recent research works have proven the extreme possibility of nanofibres application in the medical and healthcare field. This workshop will highlight the nanofibres’s, emerging applications in biomedical and healthcare fields. It summarizes the recent researches on nanofibres for drug delivery systems and controlled drug release, tissue engineered scaffolds, dressings for wound healing and focused on different biopolymers potential application in biomedical applications. This workshop will help the researchers from science, engineering and medical sciences to come together on a common platform to share their experience and enhance their knowledge on nanofiber based biomedical healthcare materials for infection control.
