Quorum sensing in bacterial virulence

Living world is a dynamic institution and in nature, all living organisms are in constant stress for the struggle of their prime existence leading to an ecological competition. Prime requisite for such a competition is in the ability to interact with surroundings and develop mechanisms to respond. Bacterial pathogens interact with other bacteria and their host and have developed mechanisms to resist drug treatments and other clinical measures. Therefore, the project will involve understanding role of bacteial quorum sensing in the virulence and antimicrobial resistance.

Dr. Sumit Kumar

Design of a Compact Antipodal Vivaldi Antenna (AVA) Array for 5G Communication Applications

The proposed project includes communication and materials disciplinary. Antenna design for 5G communication comes under the communication disciplinary whereas the study of the effect of metamaterial on antenna performance parameters is the part of physics disciplinary. Substrate material required for antenna design plays a vital role in the performance parameters of an antenna. Hence, this research proposal includes both communication and physics disciplinary.

Dr. Bhushan Borotikar

Artificially Intelligent Algorithms for the Assessment of Femoroacetabular Impingement to Generate Personalised Treatment Strategies

Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a common cause of hip pain in active young adult population which can lead to early onset of osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip. Arthroscopic surgery of the hip is a preferred treatment strategy in the management of FAI syndrome, however multiple challenges persist in the diagnostic pathway. This project in collaboration with Cambridge University Hospitals, UK, proposes to target personalized management of FAI by using emerging techniques of deep and machine learning for medical image analysis.

Dr. Bhushan Borotikar

Evaluating the impact of anatomical features on the function of the basal thumb joint using an integrated modelling approach.

Osteoarthritis (OA) of the thumb base affects a large number of the population worldwide and negatively impacts quality of life and independence of the patients. Given its high clinical relevance, many studies have focused on thumb base OA, however, the of anatomical and mechanical factors to disease onset and contribution progression remains poorly understood. In this project which is in collaboration with KU Leuven, Belgium, we will use innovative modelling approaches based on advanced medical imaging techniques to identify shape-pose variations in the thumb base joint and study the interaction between joint morphology, kinematics, and loading.

Machine learning based models of bone growth to predict morphological changes in pediatric population: Implications for knee joint growth disorders and injury treatment

Children who incur joint injuries, particularly patellofemoral instability and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, are vulnerable to early-onset osteoarthritis and chronic musculoskeletal impairment through their lifetime. Although surgical treatment is a preferred option, treating a skeletally immature bone or joint has led to post-surgical complexities leading to failures and recurrences in pediatric and adolescent populations. This study, in collaboration with the University of Missouri, USA, will focus on the development and validation of data-driven statistical shape models of the pediatric knee joint that can predict morphological changes due to growth

Dr. Bhushan Borotikar

Understanding the impact of osteotomy surgery on lower limb contact mechanics: Implications for osteoarthritic surgery management.

While total hip replacement has been termed as “surgery of the century”, total joint arthroplasty for end-‐stage knee OA is associated with higher patient dissatisfaction and lower implant survival rates. Optimization of joint preserving corrective osteotomies around the knee will reduce the need for primary total joint replacement as it prevents progression towards end-stage OA by redistributing weightbearing forces on the articular surface. In this PhD in collaboration with the University of Ghent, Belgium, we aim to tackle the clinical limitations by an engineering approach by developing an entire lower-limb model to predict static and dynamic articular contact stresses and preoperatively plan optimal, patient-specific alignment.

Ph.D. Coursework

Pre- Ph D Coursework is an important matter of concern for the new students who wish to enroll for the Ph D Programme of SIU. Please note that the scheduling of coursework is done by Deans of faculties and hence SCRI cannot inform the same to prospective students in advance. The following important points be noted. 

  1. M. Phil. degree holders having Research Methodology with B+ grades are exempted from coursework. The decision on exemption from coursework shall be conveyed to individual Deans as per the rulebook after ascertain the eligibility. 

  2. The students who have completed Ph. D from other Universities shall be exempted from coursework. 

  3. Those who have completed coursework in other Universities and taken fresh admissions in SIU Ph. D. Programme are not eligible for exemption from coursework. 

  4. The admitted students have to complete the coursework in the assigned duration (generally between Sept to May every year). The exact scheduling will be communicated by the respective Deans. 

  5. The students working with supervisors from Nasik, Nagpur, Bangalore, Hyderabad, NOIDA campuses shall be required to report to the location decided by the respective Deans for attending the coursework. The default location for coursework is Pune.

  6. The students attending coursework will have to make their own arrangement of stay and logistics. 

  7. The scheduling, delivery, monitoring and evaluation of coursework is done by the concerned Deans and not SCRI. Hence, all queries are directed to the respective Deans.

  8. As per UGC norms, the coursework has to be conducted in face to face mode and on weekdays. Be ready for the same.
