  • Dr. Anirban Roy awarded the Innovative Students Projects Award 2017 by Indian National Academy of Engineering

    The invention was about development of indigenous low cost hemodialysis membranes. The project involved development of biocompatible material, developing an indigenous process to spin clinical grade hollow fiber membranes using a self fabricated extremely low cost assembly and post processing of the membranes to enhance the biological response and mechanical performance of the membranes. It also involved developing a proper ecosystem, identifying the stakeholders and manufacturers to commercialize the technology. It was concluded that the cost of hemodialyzers could be reduced by 5 folds (Rs 300 instead of Rs 1500) using the complete technology developed.
