Antibiotic resistance has become a global health problem. Now, we want to develop cheap and environmentally friendly drug to overcome this global challenge. During the summer internship, I will be working under Prof. Zong-Hong Lin at Institute of Biomedical Engineering, National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan.
I have been awarded Global Engineering Leadership Scholarship which includes the subsidized round trip air tickets and free accommodation.
Visa (8K): For visa application
Insurance (8.6K): For overseas insurance
Food (32K): Rs 500 per day for 64 days
Prof. Zong-Hong Lins group does advanced research on nanotechnology. His work ranges from developing Self Powered Nano Generator to Preparation of Antibacterial Nanomaterial and Detection of Biomolecules.
Prof. Zong-Hong Lin
Prof. Lin received his B.S and M.S in Physical Chemistry from National Chung Cheng University Taiwan in 2003 and 2005 respectively. He was awarded Ph.D in Analytical Chemistry from National Taiwan University. He did Postdoctoral research in National Taiwan University and Georgia Tech USA. Now, he is Assistant Professor at Institute of Biomedical Engineering NTHU.He has been awarded ABMC5 Young Investigator Award in 2015. He has published 64 articles in reputed International Journals and his publications have been cited for 2970 times with H-index of 30 and i10-Index of 51.
Despite the potential medical application of nanomaterial toxicity and specificity are the major challenges to overcome. However, Prof. Lin in NTHU has developed new nano-material with reduced toxicity and increased specificity.
In addition, developing a cheap method of fabrication of the nanomaterial is also a challenge. I will be working for two months to develop a new method of fabricating functional antibacterial nanomaterial.
