Professor Sanjeeva Murthy - Associate Research Professor at the New Jersey Center for Biomaterials (NJCBM), is a materials scientist with expertise in polymers, biomaterials and biological structures. His current activities at the lab include testing and characterization of new polymers for regenerative medicine, and fabricating them into devices, scaffolds for tissue repair and replacement, biomedical implants, nerve regeneration scaffolds and drug delivery systems. A common denominator in all NJCBM’s research projects is the processing of polymers into various forms, fibers, pins and films.
- Who should attend?
Anybody using polymer extrusion processes who would like to know how capillary rheometry can be used to optimize processing conditions
- Why attend?
To learn how capillary rheometry can be used to screen large numbers of polymers for stability and processing prior to larger scale extrusion, thereby saving time and money
- What will you learn?
How capillary rheometry can be used to screen biodegradable polymers and additives for thermal stability and processability with just a few grams of sample
