Novel Biomaterials Based Personalized Burn Wound Care at Patient Bedside” (JRF/SRF) @ Department of Biomedical Engineering, IIT Hyderabad.
Burns are one of the most common and devastating forms of trauma. In 2004, nearly 11 million people worldwide and 1 million people in India were burned moderately or severely. An estimated 0.1 million deaths every year are caused by burns mainly in low- and middle-income countries.
