Development and Optimization of a Non-contact Optical Device for Online Monitoring Neonatal and Maternal Jaundice: The global statistics of child-death under 5 years of age is very alarming. Twenty children per minute die, mostly from preventive causes, almost all in underdeveloped/developing world. While neonatal death (first day death) itself accounts 1/3rd of the global child-death, neonatal jaundice (higher bilirubin level at birth) is significantly responsible for neonatal death or otherwise results in kernicterus causing irreversible brain damage. A large portion of neonatal deaths depends on maternal health during pregnancy. more info...

Silk protein for making biophotonic devices : This novel material has the potential to spawn prototype textile-based smart electronic devices for soldiers and biomedical applications.Researchers have synthesized a silk-protein-based hybrid material whose sensitivity to optical signals, makes it potentially useful for making biophotonic devices. It is hybridized by depositing zinc oxide nanorods on a nanocomposite film made of silk protein fibroin and gold nanoparticles. more info...
