UGC-DSK Post-Doctoral Fellow
Department of Biotechnology

Dr. Chandini C. Mohan has a Ph.D. in Nanobioengineering from Amrita Vishwavidyapeedham University. She did her postdoctoral research at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea on design and application of a nanobased biosensor platform for early cancer detection using circulating exosomes as a liquid biopsy tool. Later she joined Center for Nanosciences, Amrita University as a Research Scientist to work on a Translation project on process development and product scale up of nanobiomaterials for bone regeneration. She did her Masters in Biotechnology from the Dept. of Biotechnology, Cochin University of Science and Technology. Presently, she is working as the UGC-Dr D.S. Kothari Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Department of Biotechnology CUSAT.

Research area:
Her past research emphasizes on developing innovative strategies for disease diagnosis and treatment which are simple, easy to use and affordable for clinical translation. The focus of her current research is development of a transdermal patch for the treatment of one of the common problems effecting Women ie., polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). PCOS has no cure available till date due to multiple stigmas associated with the disease. Her research will work towards developing a unified solution in the form of natural molecules with multitargeted effects as nanomedicine to treat the disease.
