Dr. Priya Vashisth joined the Centre for Biomedical Engineering at IIT Delhi as an Assistant Professor in 2023. Her research focus includes the development of biomedical implants and localized drug delivery systems to treat complex coronary vascular diseases. Dr. Vashisth is also enthusiastic about creating tissue-based Exvivo platforms to understand vascular pathophysiology and to evaluate the effect of various therapies and interventions. Such systems can reduce the dependency on animal models.

She obtained a Ph.D. degree in Biotechnology from IIT Roorkee in 2016, where she developed microbial polysaccharides-based dermal grafts using an electrospinning technique. She was a postdoctoral research associate at King’s College London where she explored nano-needles-based platforms for localized drug and gene therapies. She also has served IIT Delhi as a DST-Inspire Faculty and developed bioresorbable and biostable drug-eluting vascular stents to treat atherosclerosis.


Research Interests: Biomedical Implants, Biomaterials, Drug delivery, Tissue-based Exvivo bioreactors
