Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham or Amrita University is a multi-campus, multi-disciplinary research university in India. The University is accredited 'A' by NAAC and is ranked as one of the best research universities in India. The university is spread across nine hundred acres campuses in the three states of South India in Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. The University Headquarters is at Ettimadai in an 800 acres well-planned campus with scenic beauty near the foothills of the Western Ghats, about 22 km from Coimbatore City. Extensive interaction between all campuses is made possible through the Amrita-ISRO satellite network for e-learning.Presently, It is the only university in India having Nobel laureate as faculty. In 2011, Nobel laureate Dr Leland H. Hartwell joined Amrita University as an Adjunct faculty. Furthermore, Amrita Varsity was the first to install PARAM 10000 supercomputer in India; ahead of IISc & IITs. The university continuously collaborates with the top US universities including Ivy league universities and top European universities for regular student exchange programs. The university offers bachelors, masters, and doctoral degree programs in computer science, engineering, business, biotechnology, nanotechnology, ayurveda, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, dentistry, social work, communication, education, and basic science. Areas of specialization which include Medical Informatics, Computational Engineering, Cyber Security, Clinical Research, and Oncology have been designed keeping in mind India's National Development Plans. 13,000 students are enrolled in nearly a 100 different degree programs.

We report the effect of carboxyl functionalization of graphene in pacifying its strong hydrophobic interaction with cells and associated toxic effects. Pristine graphene was found to accumulate on the cell membrane causing high oxidative stress leading to apoptosis, whereas carboxyl functionalized hydrophilic graphene was internalized by the cells without causing any toxicity.

A formulation for treating a patient with hepatocellular carcinoma is disclosed. The formulation comprises therapeutic agents in the form of nanoparticles containing one or more proteins or polysaccharides. The therapeutic agent is conjugated to an active targeting agent causing the formulation to preferentially segregate to the hepatocellular carcinoma tissue to release the therapeutic agents. Methods of treating hepatocellular carcinoma using the formulations are also disclosed.


An e-learning system has a local classroom comprising a local student station and an instructor station, such that local students at the local student station and an instructor at the instructor station face each other directly along a first viewing line, a plurality of remote classrooms each having a student station, video cameras in each of the remote classrooms positioned and oriented to capture video images of subjects, video displays in the local classroom arranged along a line orthogonal to the first viewing line and all facing the local student station, in sets of at least two displays, arranged vertically one above another, each first set of at least two displays dedicated to one of the remote classrooms, a second plurality of video displays like the first, but facing the instructor, connection apparatus between classrooms, a server coordinating video feeds with displays.


Electrospinning apparatus and method for producing multi-dimensional structures such as one-dimensional continuous yarns, two-dimensional mats and three-dimensional cotton-like fluffy scaffolds is disclosed. Further, electrospinning apparatus and method with single collector geometry for producing multi-dimensional structures and core-sheath yarns are disclosed.


An e-learning system has a local classroom with an instructor station and a microphone and a local student station with a microphone, a plurality of remote classrooms with an instructor display and a student station with a microphone, and planar displays and video cameras in each of the classrooms, the remote and local classrooms connected over a network, with a server monitoring feeds and enforcing exclusive states, with sets of video displays, each set dedicated to a remote classroom, arrayed along a line orthogonal to a line between the instructor station and the local student station, with one display in each set facing toward the instructor station, and one display in each set facing toward the local student station.

An apparatus reducing power theft on a micro power grid includes a server connected to the micro power grid, the server including a processor, data repository and software executing on the processor from a non-transitory medium the software enabling collection over time of bi-directional current data from smart distribution nodes connected to identified segments of the micro power grid and from smart meters distributed to one or more client demarcation points on the identified segments, processing of the bi-directional current data to determine power theft event frequency and power theft current information, assigning of a class to the individual ones of identified segments according to results of processing, and resetting of the number of packet transmission hop counts between the smart distribution nodes on identified segments and resetting the time period interval between subsequent power theft check routines for each identified segment based upon the classification data.


Systems and methods for transmitting and receiving radio waves includes a parabolic dish, a focal plane antenna array configuration antenna elements arranged in a circular array configuration with array elements positioned along circumference of rings with a distance between each element and coupled a focal disc positioned along a focal plane of the parabolic dish. The array is configured to transmit and receive radio beam patterns with one or more Orbital Angular Momentum states l via a transceiver feed assembly. The transceiver includes a transmitter adapted to alter excitation phase of the radio beams of successive elements and generate helical wave fronts in the far-field, and a receiver to enhance the received wave fronts. A total field received by the array configuration is then calculated by a superposition of the fields received by each of the elements.
