Prakash Nallathamby

Research Assistant Professor, Center for Nano Science and Technology

University of Notre Dame, US

Nallathamby received his bachelor’s degree in industrial biotechnology in 2003 from Anna University, Chennai, India, followed by his Ph.D. in biomedical sciences from Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA, in 2010. As a Gordon Battelle fellow at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 2011, he took the lead in engineering and modifying nanoparticles for the Multi-Scale Toxicology Initiative project by Battelle for collaborators at Lawrence Livermore, Brookhaven, Pacific Northwest, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

He has more than 1400 citations through 25 peer-reviewed journal publications, one book chapter, and two patent applications, and is continuing to build on his strong interdisciplinary research under the NDnano umbrella, collaborating with affiliated faculty from a wide field of research areas and in related institutions nationally and internationally.

Nallathamby’s main research interest is to use nanoparticles as tools in: (1) biomedical research and development, (2) anisotropic modular platform technologies, (3) scaled up industrial applications, (4) environmental cleanup, and (5) computational modeling
