GTIIT- SEHM will harbor a total area of ~6500 m2 with ~2000 m2 of common laboratory space, ~4000 m2 for individual research labs for the PIs (~100-120 m2 of laboratory space per research group) and ~500 m2 of office space for PIs, students, engineers, technicians and administrative staff. It will be the house of two advanced research hubs and one Advanced Prototyping Laboratory with state-of-the-art equipment.
A. Integrated Hub for Bio-Mechanics and Medical Devices and Robotics
The Integrated Hub for Bio-Mechanics and Medical Devices and Robotics (~3000 m2) will include up to 20 research groups and will host five core laboratories: (i) Core Laboratory for Computational Biomechanics, (ii) Core Laboratory for Additive Manufacturing of Medical Devices and Robotics, (iii) Core Laboratory for Mechanical Testing of Materials, (iv) Core Laboratory for Fluid Mechanics, Bio-transport Phenomena and Microfluidic Biosensing Devices and (v) Shared Biology Laboratory.
B. Integrated Hub for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology in Diagnostics and Therapeutics
The Integrated Hub for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology in Diagnostics and Therapeutics (~3000 m2) will include up to 20 research groups and will host five core laboratories: (i) Core Synthetic Laboratory, (ii) Core Analytical Laboratory, (iii) Core Laboratory for Nanoparticle Production, (iv) Core Characterization Laboratory and (v) Core Biology Laboratory.
C. Advanced Prototyping Laboratory
Life scientists often require fabrication or engineering solutions for specific well-defined problems that do not necessarily pose an intellectual challenge for engineers. Similarly, biomechanical engineers may require a biological model system or proof-of-concept to demonstrate preliminary concepts, which for the life-scientist would be detached from their research needs. One of the core pillars in bridging between life sciences and engineering groups will be a foundry/prototype laboratory employing five engineers, chemists, and biologists servicing all groups at the center. This laboratory will answer the needs of both groups for high-level technological and biological tools from the other. The foundry (~450 m2) will offer:
A. High-level machine shop services, with emphasis on micromachining: micro-mills, laser ablation, high resolution but small-scale 3D printers.
B. Have stand-alone lithography services or a strong link with the cleanroom to provide microfabrication solution. Basic equipment will include clean room, mask-less aligner (MLA), spinner, plasma, metal deposition.
C. Electronics and automation solutions: an equipped electronics workshop enabling rapid implementation of electromechanical components for research.
The Advanced Prototyping Laboratory will serve all the researchers of GTIIT- SEHM and other research centers on campus.
With GTIIT expansion Additional Hubs are planned.
