Innovations, inspiration and invention have marked the progress of mankind at each phase of evolution. VU Centre of Excellence for Biosystems, Biomedical and Drug Delivery Technologies (VU BBDDT) was established on 2nd March 2021 with the express aim of providing the industry and academia with the opportunity and resources to undertake the challenges in research and development. Vishwakarma University’s multidisciplinary expertise in the field of science and technology has facilitated the development of the Centre of Excellence for Biosystems, Biomedical and Drug Delivery Technologies with an aim to take challenges that will be beneficial for the stakeholders and society at large.

VU BBDDT works in close collaboration with the industries, academic institutes, government bodies, research centres, laboratories, clinical research centres, start-ups (Enterprises) and/or small-scale industries, faculty, students, etc. The Centre takes up research projects in the multi-disciplinary areas of pharmaceutical sciences, along with a blend of science and engineering technologies.

This provides a breeding ground for innovations and inventions in Biosystems, Biomedical and Drug Delivery Technologies.

  • Encourage young ideas & evolve for the betterment of all
  • Nurture and inspire innovations in Research and Development
  • To establish professional expertise to encourage high-quality research, innovation and entrepreneurship.
  • To establish a Centre of Excellence with sound infrastructure for in-house training to the students.
  • To act as a supportive partner to the industry and academia, providing the facilities and resources to undertake the latest in research and development.

Title of the book: Novel Technologies in Biosystems, Biomedical & Drug Delivery

Publisher: Springer Nature

ISBN 978-981-99-5280-9

ISBN 978-981-99-5281-6 (eBook)


Novel technologies encompass precision systems that have a far-reaching impact on various facets of human existence. The adoption of these cutting-edge technologies is imperative for the enhancement of the human condition. Biosystems, which encompass a plethora of biological entities such as organs, tissues, and ecological support systems, necessitate a delicate equilibrium among their constituents to ensure the ecological sustainability of our planet and its habitability. The coexistence and persistence of living organisms hinge on a conducive environment, although excessive anthropogenic interference poses a substantial threat to their viability.

While the realm of biosystems is extensive, this publication concentrates on select entities, scrutinizing their operational mechanisms, their pivotal roles in our daily lives, and their pragmatic applications. The publication also delves into diverse drug delivery systems, elucidating their modus operandi and their advantages over conventional therapeutic approaches like chemotherapy. It underscores the precision and clinical efficacy of these drug delivery systems, including the materials employed and their architectural configurations for precise drug administration to targeted cancer cells, while sparing healthy cells from harm, thereby optimizing pharmaceutical efficacy.

This edited compendium offers multifaceted insights from accomplished scholars, researchers, and practitioners, addressing various facets of biosystems, drug delivery systems, and their extensive applications in the realm of biomedicine. The publication serves not only to edify students, scholars, and researchers but also to expand their knowledge base, making a substantial contribution to the fields of medical and pharmaceutical sciences. Its overarching goal is to inspire researchers to accumulate essential knowledge to inaugurate and propel their research endeavours, ultimately catalysing the development and progression of sustainable biosystems for improved life quality on Earth.

Book edited by Prof. Sonali Manwatkar, Shrikaant Kulkarni & A.G. Haghi. Around 32 contributors from various institutes, University, industries contributed their research work for the completion of the book, under the title of “Novel Technologies in Biosystems, Biomedical & Drug Delivery”. Prof. Sonali Manwatkar, Prof. Priyanka Gondhale-Karpe, Prof. Om M. Bagade, Prof. Poonam R. Inamdar and Prof. Dipali Talele are the potential authors from department of Pharmacy contributed their work.

Novel Technologies in Biosystems, Biomedical & Drug Delivery book published by Springer Nature, serve valuable knowledge, balanced, meaningful and productive learning material for students, teachers and researchers.
