Hudson Seminar Series | Dr Shayanti Mukherjee
Dr Shayanti Mukherjee is a J&J WiSTEM2D Scholar and a Hudson Emerging Leader in the Women’s health theme at The Ritchie Centre and will be presenting a talk titled ‘Advancing women’s urogynaecological health using micro/nanotechnologies’.
Dr Mukherjee completed her PhD at the National University of Singapore where her work contributed to the growing body of nanostructured biomaterials design for repair and regeneration of soft tissues. More recently, her research encompasses principles of material science, nanotechnology, stem cell biology and immunology to improve maternal urogynecological health. Her work involves design of optimal meshes using degradable polymers and additives for improving the treatment of Pelvic organ Prolapse (POP) and maternal birth injuries. Dr Mukherjee has designed novel tissue engineered adult stem cell based surgical constructs using nanotechnology, 3D bioprinting and Melt electro writing. She also has a keen interest in bio-inks for cellular bioprinting for personalising pelvic floor reconstructive surgery.
