Dr. H. Balajj Raghavendran

Dr H Balajj Raghavendran working as Associate Professor in National Orthopedic Centre of Excellence inResearch and learning (NOCERAL), Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, University of Malaya, KLMalaysia. Dr.Balajl, specialized In Stem cells and Bio-material tissue Engineering Research in vitro and vivo. Dr Balaji obtained his Bachelor’s from University of Madras and Master’s Degree in Biochemistry from Periyar University. He received his Ph.D(2005) In Biochemistry from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology atUniversity of Madras. Hethen pursued his Post-doctoral research at three institute POSTECH,Korean Atomic Energy Researchinstituteand LiverImmunology Research Centre SouthKorea(2006 to 2010). Dr Balaji Main research interest is in the Development and Testing various 3D material cues for tissue Engineering application and in vivo testing using bone marrow stromal cells using various analytical and molecular and imaging techniques. Have published 70 research articles for his research credit and in the last 8 years major focus on application of biomaterials for bone tissue engineering applications. Have tested nano-fibrous, porous and 3D scaffold in vitro and in vivo studies using bone marrow stromal cells and rat cranium defect animal model. Have used control or sustained release strategies for growth factors and attempted studies to regenerate rat cranium bone using 3D scaffolds loaded with growth factors like Platelet derived growth factor (PDGF-BB).
