CNBP’s Macquarie University node welcomes PhD student Rachit Bansal to the team.
Rachit has a Master’s in Nanotechnology from VIT University, Vellore, India, where he worked on the synthesis and properties evaluation of different conducting, insulating, semiconducting and superconducting oxides.
Later he worked at the National University of Singapore in the area of Biochemistry exploring the cross-link efficiency of siderophores (especially enterobactin) in order to design non-leachable anti-fungal wound dressings.
Rachit will work under supervision of CNBP Associate Investigator A/Prof Anwar Sunna and Centre Research Fellow Dr Andrew Care.
His project is aimed at understanding the binding mechanism of a unique solid-binding peptide displaying binding affinity to a diverse range of silica-based materials.
