Research Overview

Professor Vadgama's research interests include the development of biocompatible biosensors for reliable metabolite monitoring in critically ill patients. Specific systems include sensors for glucose and lactate. He is also investigating the interaction of cells and proteins at materials surface and is presently studying the use of spider silk as a tissue engineering scaffold. Underpinning techniques and technologies include: polymeric membranes, electrochemistry, impedance spectroscopy, in vivo metabolite sensors, bioprocess monitioring contact angle measurement and piezoelectric sensing.
