The Nanobiomedicine Lab, Aquatic Nanotoxicology Unit and Department of Research, Saveetha Dental College and Hospitals, SIMATS, Chennai had organised the 1st Workshop on Nanobiomedicine Preparation and Applications (Nanoz-2K19) on August 30th, 2019. Nanotechnology is an emerging field and having lot of applications in diagnosis and treatment of various diseases. Nanoparticles have wide range of applications in dentistry especially nanosilver, nanozinc, nanocopper and chitosan nanoparticles in antimicrobial activity against oral pathogens and anticancer activities, nanocarbon, nanosilica and dendrimers in bio-mineralization, gold nanoparticles in drug delivery systems, hydrogels, metal nanoparticles in periodontology, endodontics, orthodontics and bone filling products. Dr. D. J. Mukesh Kumar, Post-Doctoral fellow from Madras University delivered a Guest Lecture on “Biomedical Applications of Nanotechnology”, followed by which Dr. Rajeshkumar gave a crisp Introduction & Description of Nanobiomedicine Lab. About 30 delegates from all over the state participated in the workshop. This workshop was structured in such a way that, the techniques of Nanoparticles preparation (Silver, zinc oxide, silica, zirconium, and copper oxide), Nanocomposites preparation, Characterization using UV-vis spectroscopy, Purification, Antimicrobial activity, Antioxidant activity, Anti-inflammatory activity, Brine shrimp lethality assay (Cytotoxic effect) and Zebra fish embryonic toxicology were illuminated. The 1st Workshop on Nanobiomedicine Preparation and Applications turned out be very interactive and informative.
