Researchers at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Bhopal, also known as IISER Bhopal, have successfully created an innovative synthetic biomedical adhesive. This groundbreaking adhesive has the remarkable ability to thoroughly seal and heal damaged and dissected tissues. The biodegradable and biocompatible adhesive can effectively bond various surfaces, including tissues, bones, eggshells, and wood, both in air and underwater.

What sets it apart is that it does not depend on any additional crosslinking agents or metal ions. Furthermore, these adhesives find application in orthopaedic procedures, amplifying the mending of bones. In fact, they can be employed as a substitute for sutures, staples, and wires when it comes to closing wounds. Additionally, these could be utilized in the realm of eco-friendly packaging applications and products, thereby aiding in the promotion of sustainable practices across multiple industries, as per Pharmabiz. The professor was the leader of the research. Aasheesh Srivastava serves as a faculty member in the Department of Chemistry at IISER Bhopal. He holds a doctorate degree. The individual referred to as Aashish Sharma holds the title of Associate Professor.

In the esteemed institution of the School of Medical and Allied Sciences, G.D. Goenka University in Haryana, along with Dr. Tanmay Dutta is a Postdoctoral Researcher at IISER Bhopal. Prof. (short for professor) is a commonly used abbreviation for addressing someone who holds a position or title in academia. It is a polite and respectful way to refer to a professor or a knowledgeable person. According to Aasheesh Srivastava, a professor at the Department of Chemistry in IISER Bhopal, biomedical adhesives play a critical role in medicine as they are essential for bonding and sealing materials. These adhesives provide the necessary support and cohesion to repair tissues. Materials that are appropriate for these adhesives can be discovered within the realms of nature, often emitted by aquatic creatures like sandcastle worms and mussels.
