Profile

The Subject Matter Expert (SME) should be Doctoral or Masters in Biological or biomedical sciences, besides must have a good exposure to silkworm strains and silk, experience in directing technology application for bioprinting in maxilla facial application. The key areas where subject matter expertise is required, is listed below

Area of Expertise Mandatory Experience
  • Examination and analysis of silk fibroin extractions, oversee blending of novel bioink, and help in characterising the same
  • Iterate till the characteristics of the ideal blends of silk fibroin and appropriate bioinks are established
Must have worked in technology areas used in the following
  • For Silk fibroin synthesis
  • Synthesised and tested sericin and silk fibroin

Induce and establish crystalline structure in solution so as to aid bioink stability

Past project work involving inducing crystalline structure

Lead iterations for 3D bioconstruct using 3D bioprinters involving cellular material, establish SOP for bioprinting of invitro scaffolds for evaluation

  • Good knowhow of 3d bioprinting technology as applied to
  • Deep knowhow in behaviour of silk fibroin and its development

Perform tests for printability, thermal stability and other standard tests, thereby finally establishing the repeatable and consistent prints

Must have led flow analysis, sweep analysis, toxicity studies, thermal studies, structural studies

Create model for invivo defect, support clinical team in implanting the same for further analysis

Provide guidance and subject matter expertise to other team members
