Biography

Professor Deb has over 25 year’s experience in the field of Biomaterials Chemistry. Her research relates to the development of biomaterials to restore function of traumatised or diseased tissue using innovative analogue materials.

With her expertise in biomaterials chemistry, Sanjukta focuses on biomaterials for clinical application and has built a successful research group comprising of research scientists, clinicians, postgraduate students and visiting scientists, to address challenging problems in regenerative medicine.  

She is currently Chair of the Biomaterials Chemistry research interest group of the Royal Society of Chemistry and the past president of the UK Society for Biomaterials of which she is founder member. She is a Fellow of the Academy of Dental Materials and Royal Society of Chemistry. Sanjukta is an Associate Editor for Journal of Biomaterials Application and J of Tissue Science & Engineering and has published over 100 papers, authored several books and book chapters and holds 7 patents.

Her current research projects address several important clinical challenges, which are being researched using novel biomaterials chemistry:

-Design of biomimetic and bio-instructive biomaterials for craniofacial defects and musculoskeletal repair.

-Elastomeric tough hydrogel networks for wound healing

-Antimicrobial agents

-Remineralisation of teeth

-Enhancing longevity of the resin-dentine interface through novel dentine bonding agents

-Smart biomaterials to function as dentine substitutes and restorative repair materials

-Novel orthodontic etching techniques in orthodontic treatments

    From toothwear to oral pathology, from facial reconstruction to oral surgery, there's one thing that all our research shares: an underlying desire to make a difference to patients and bring benefits to society. We’re particularly strong in prosthodontics and endodontics research, and our work in this field feeds into our postgraduate programmes.
