In a bid to improve research activities and facilitate faculty abroad programme, Dr C Gopalakrishnan, Associate Professor from the Department of Physics and Nanotechnology, SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Kattankulathur will soon be part of The Australian National University (ANU)’s Faculty Abroad Programme.
The selection is based on individual accomplishments which includes demonstrated excellence in their career internationally and added value to diversity. This will facilitate him to teach and do research work on his project Nano Biomedical Devices, which are used in the early stage detection and prevention of fatal diseases such as cancer that have become a challenge for medical practioners and scientists.
“Nanomechanical resonators are highly sensitive in detecting the mass changes even up to the zepto grams sensitivity. The development of low cost and high sensitive nanomechanical resonators may help the practioners in the early detection of cancer,” says this Nanoscale Physicist-Scientist ‘D’ Cadre.
