New Jersey Centre for Biomaterials, Rutgers University, USA
Dr. Murthy is a Materials Scientist interested in polymers and biomaterials. His current projects include fabrication of tissue scaffolds for use as biomedical implants, studying cell-substrate interactions, surface modification, and understanding the influence of hydration in polymers on mechanical behavior and biological activity. He investigates structure at molecular to macroscopic length scales to tailor polymers for biomedical applications. He utilizes x-ray and neutron scattering, thermal analysis, microscopy and related techniques for studying their properties, characterize polymer surfaces, thin films, and interfaces. Currently, he is a Research Associate Professor at the New Jersey Center for Biomaterials, Rutgers University.
He has published more than 230 papers and book chapters, ~ 170 in refereed journals.
Dr. Murthy is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and International Center for Diffraction Data. He is member of the American Chemical Society and Society for Biomaterials.
