Congratulations GaharwarPhD#10 – Dr. Kaivalya Deo

Graduate Student Kaivalya Deo defended his Ph.D thesis titled “Malleable and Biofunctional Materials for 3D Bioprinting”. Kaivalya’s thesis focussed on highlighting approaches to design specialized hydrogel bioinks with tailored reinforcements. The work elucidated structure–property–function relationships of the hydrogel networks and leveraged their biophysical and biochemical properties to develop, through a materials-centric approach, next-generation of bioinks for 3D bioprinting.
