Dr. Himansu Sekhar Nanda
Dr. Himansu Sekhar Nanda is holding the chair (editor-in-chief) of the editorial board of Journal of Stem Cell Research and Medicine (JSCRM). Dr. Nanda earned his doctorate in Materials Sciences and Engineering (Biomaterials) from international graduate school of prestigious National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), Japan (2011-2014). During his doctoral tenure, he was associated with World Premier International Center for Materials and Nanoarchitectonics (WPI-MANA) and was working with the mentor-ship of Nano-life field coordinator and unit (Tissue Regeneration Materials Unit) director , Professor Guoping Chen (now associate editor of Journal of Materials Chemistry B: High impact materials for biology and medicine, RSC publishing). He developed the expertise in porous scaffold design from various FDA approved polymers and used those in tissue engineering and controlled drug delivery applications. He holds the background of B-Tech in Biotechnology (Biju Patnaik University of Technology-India: 2004-2008) and M-Tech degree in Nanotechnology (Indian Institute of Technology,-India, 2008-2010). Soon after his doctorate, he held the position of a post-doctoral fellow at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) (2014-2015) and worked with the mentor-ship of Professor Enrico Traversa (listed in the Essential Science Indicators (ESI)/web of science as a highly-cited researcher, both in the materials science and chemistry, fellow of ECS and editor-in-chief of Materials for Renewable and Sustainable Energy). In his post-doctoral research, he was actively involved in preparation of ceria nanomedicine for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications. From 2016, he moved Steele’s lab sitting at School of Materials Science and Engineering (SME), Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore and is closely working with Professor Terry W. J. Steele. In NTU, he is actively involved in developing clinical grade bioadhesives (blood biocompatible tailored soft tissue bioadhesives) for surgical anastomosis applications. He has published descent number of articles in established peer reviewed journals and is actively involved in speaking at various international conferences, meetings, symposia and public lecture in prestigious universities and labs. Apart from the association with JSCRM, he is also working as editor /in editorial board of many international Journals such as Journal of Nanotechnology and Materials Science, Journal of Nanoscience, Nanomedicine and Nanobiology, SciFed Nanotech Research Letters, SciFed Drug Delivery Research Journal, Journal of Medical Science and Clinical Research and Current updates in nanotechnology.
