15:30 – 15:35 Innovations from IIT Bombay Community
– Introduction

15:35 – 15:40 Hollow fiber membranes (HFM)
fabricated for hemodialysis
with the help of indigenously
developed low-cost pilot plant.
Published results had shown the
superiority of our membrane in terms of
biocompatibility and performance.
Our solution is different by virtue of
better performance and lower cost.

Prof. Jayesh R. Bellare, Surendra Kumar
Verma (Research Scholar)
15:40 – 15:45 Bone loss and failure from injury and
disease are
significant clinical problems.
Treatment is by auto/allo/xenografts,
which are limited by
donor scarcity,
high risk of rejection, and disease transfer.
We have developed a 3-D porous
visco-elastic scaffolds
that rapidly regenerates high quality bone.

Mr Kunal Khanna and Prof Jayesh Bellare
15:45 – 15:50 The ‘Multi Degree-of-Freedom
laparoscopic device’
utilities a mechanical system
(without use of wires and pulleys)
to achieve higher degree of tool
manipulation which leads to
better tissue reach during surgeries.
The device usage will decrease
surgeon fatigue
while improving surgical efficiency.

Prof B. Ravi
15:50 – 15:55 The product is a surgical device
that helps in focused
retraction of organs/tissue in
laparoscopic surgeries.
The innovation lies in combining
different parts such as hook,
needle, tag and grasper all into
one device which results in a
highly economical and more
efficient surgical procedure.

Prof. B. Ravi
15:55 – 16:00 The needle biopsy device is designed
for taking tumor tissue samples.
The innovation is to have a length
adjustment mechanism to take
variable length tumour samples.
The needle mold can accommodate biopsy
needles of all gauge sizes.
The device is also made reusable
and thus economical for patients.

Prof B. Ravi
16:00 – 16:05 Autoantibody screening from
serum/blood samples of
brain tumors like glioma and meningioma
was performed for
identifying early diagnostic minimally
invasive biomarkers.
The platform used for this study was the
Human Proteome Arrays harboring 17,000
full length human proteins which is the
highest number of human proteins
studied for autoantibody response in these tumors.
Identified biomarkers could help diagnose and
segregate inter-grade heterogeneity as well as
prognostic outcome of subjects depending on
survival dependent variables like SVZ positive
/negative tumors or IDH1 mutation
positive/ wild type in glioma.

Prof. Sanjeeva Srivastava
16:05 – 16:10 We are presenting low-cost indigenously
developed biodegradable bone screw
from as-prepared nanocomposite biomaterial
with mechanical strength matching human
bone-soft tissue,
high biocompatibility and osteoconduction,
thus deeper market penetration.
This biocomposite has wider application
in other implantable
orthopedic devices also viz. suture
anchors, pins, wires, staples,
tacks, arrows, washers, plates, etc.

Ajay Suryavanshi, Kunal Khanna,
Prof. Jayesh Bellare and
Prof. Rohit Srivastava
16:10 – 16:15 The product is a portable,
inexpensive and high-magnification
(~ 2000X) smartphone microscope
for diagnosis of blood disorders
(e.g. sickle cell disease, malaria, etc.)
at the point-of-care.
The microscope is currently being
field tested to image blood
from sickle cell disease
patients in Gujarat.

15:30 – 15:35 Innovations from IIT
Bombay Community – Introduction
.
15:35 – 15:40 We have developed BodhiTree,
a platform for hosting interactive
multi-media textbooks: it contains
videos with embedded questions,
and out-of-video practice quizzes,
arranged concept-wise. After
paper-based books and e-books,
we envision interactive textbooks
to be the next revolution in teaching/learning.
We also have the content for 3+ courses, which
we have already used to teach 7 courses at IITB. Our
goal is to reach the textbooks to students far and wide.

Kameswari Chebrolu
15:40 – 15:45 eLSI e-Yantra Lab Setup Initiative
(eLSI) is a college level program under
which colleges are encouraged to setup
robotics labs. It is designed as a scalable
and sustainable approach that addresses
infrastructure creation and teacher
training – to create an eco-system
at the colleges to impart effective
engineering education. eLSI provides:
(i) guidance and support for
establishing robotics labs – three
robotic kits are given to each participating
college and (ii) a two-phased
training for teachers .

Kavi Arya
15:45 – 15:50 This project presents three initiatives
– providing digital online content for design,

and education in four sectors – University,
Industry, Government and the
Informal sector.

Nitesh Salvi
16:20 – 16:25 We have started proteomics e-learning
programs and developed virtual lab,
animations and video courses on proteomics.
The need for such training is especially
felt in the discipline of proteomics
where clinical studies involving
differential protein expression are
carried out on platforms like 2D-DIGE,
mass spectrometry etc. Virtual proteomics
labs and e-learning resources are thus
developed which could provide theoretical
information followed by training to perform
the sophisticated experiments using simulations
and remote triggered experiments equivalent
to an individualized hands-on training.
