About Us

PDPM IIITDM Jabalpur is an Institute of National Importance, established by Government of India in 2005 with a focus on education and research in IT enabled Design and Manufacturing. Since its inception, PDPM IIITDM Jabalpur has been playing a vital role in producing quality human resources for contribution in India's mission of inclusive and sustainable growth. Under IIIT act, the Institute has been declared as an Institute of National Importance in January 2015. The Institute campus is being developed on 250 acres of land close to Dumna Airport, Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh, India. The Institute is located at a distance of 10 kms from the Jabalpur railway station and 5.5 kms from Dumna Airport, Jabalpur. For more details, please visit https://www.iiitdmj.ac.in

About INSA:
The Indian National Science Academy was established in January 1935 with the object of promoting science in India and harnessing scientific knowledge for the cause of humanity and national welfare. The foundation of the Academy, earlier known as the National Institute of Sciences of India (NISI), was the outcome of joint endeavours of several organizations and individuals and the Indian Science Congress Association (ISCA) playing a leading role in this regard. The name of the National Institute of Sciences of India was changed to the Indian National Science Academy (INSA) in February 1970. For more details, please visit https://www.insaindia.res.in/

Biomedical Engineering and Technology (BET) Laboratory:
Biomedical Engineering and Technology (BET) Lab is currently sitting at Advanced Manufacturing Lab, Discipline of Mechanical Engineering, IITDM Jabalpur. The newly established lab is dedicated to cutting edge biomedical materials research for the emerging healthcare needs. The laboratory uses multidisciplinary approaches of sciences and engineering for solving emerging medical issues. For example: tissue replacement using materials-based tissue engineering approach, rapid wound healing using medical membranes with controlled drug release and angiogenic function, gel-based advanced coating technologies for solving biocompatibility issues, development of advanced bioinks for 3D biofabrication and many other key areas of unmet clinical need. The laboratory is also involving in understanding the biomechanical interaction at bioimplant-tissue interfaces using the principle of biomechanics for design and manufacturing of novel prosthesis bioimplants. The laboratory is currently running with the supports from major funding agencies and leading collaborators from India and abroad. BET lab welcomes young and enthusiastic students and researchers to be a part of it.

Society for Biomaterials & Artificial Organs India (SBAOI):
The Society for Biomaterials & Artificial Organs India (SBAOI) was formed in 1986 and registered under the Travancore-Cochin Act XII of 1955, (act for registration of literary, scientific and charitable societies) with the name “Society for Biomaterials and Artificial Organs India” with several objectives. This goal of the Society is not only confined in cultivating an atmosphere for the growth of basic and technological research related to Biomaterials and Artificial Organs but also to bring the professionals and experts in the domain from various part of globe via international meetings to improve the quality of future biomaterials research in India. In past few years, this has further been impacted by communication among all the members, developing a Society newsletter and also by arranging workshops with laboratory demonstrations, where learning and exchange of relevant concepts are stimulated every year. The Society is administered by its office bearers consisting of the President, two Vice presidents, the General Secretary and Treasurer elected from the executive committee constituted from the eligible members of the Society. Prof. Bikramjit Basu from Materials Research Centre, Indian Institute of Science currently serves as the president of the SBAOI. For more details, please visit https://biomaterials.org.in/

Society for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine India (STERMI):
The Society for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine India (STERMI) was registered on April 25, 2007 as a charitable society under the Travancore Cochin Literary Scientific and Charitable Societies Registration Act 1955 with a basic objective to integrate tissue engineering and regenerative medicine to enhance the health care system and to bring the interdisciplinary scientists together for improving the related R&D in India. Dr. Chandra P Sharma attended the Executive Council meeting of Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS) at the Regenerate 2006, in the World Congress on Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine in Pittsburgh on April 26, 2006. Dr. Sharma was encouraged to initiate the Society in India. He communicated with many scientists and based on the favourable responses received, the Society for Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine (India) was constituted.
