Vishnu Baba Sundaresan, PhD, brings an engineering perspective to the OSUCCC – James Translational Therapeutics Program. His research focuses on concept, design, fabrication, advance characterization and modeling of bio-derived materials systems, autonomous self-healing materials, autonomous materials through hierarchical assembly and minimally invasive magnetoelectrical surgical tools.
He is the co-holder or inventor of several patents and innovations in this area. These include magnetoelectric surgical tools for minimally invasive surgery, thermoelectric extrusion of smart structural composites with molecular precision, biotemplated conducting polymer membranes for energy storage and nuclear reprogramming through regulation of membrane chemoelectrical gradients using conducting polymer membranes.
Dr. Sundaresan has co-authored articles appearing in such well-respected publications as Smart Materials Research and Journal of Intelligent Material Systems and Structures.
He has shared his research in presentations to organizations and events including the Institute for Defense Analyses and the ASME Conference on Smart Materials, Adaptive Structures and Intelligent Systems.
