Join us Thursday, April 26 for dinner and presentation
Nanomaterials are being effectively utilized in a variety of applications including automobile catalytic converters, high energy density batteries, high power magnets, sensors, aerospace applications and for protecting stainless steels from high temperature degradation.
Dr. Seal's research however focuses on the unique antioxidant properties of certain rare earth nanoparticles, where it has been shown to protect mammalian cells against damage caused by increased reactive oxygen or nitrogen species, and has been shown to act as effective superoxide dismutase mimetic in vitro.
His presentation will provide a brief overview of the applications of these nanostructures in the potential treatment of disorders caused by reactive oxygen and nitrogen species such as certain cancers, macular degeneration and arthritis. Materials manufacturing played an important role in manipulating the biomedical properties. His talk will conclude with a discussion on the pathways to transform research to technology commercialization.
Dr. Sudipta Seal joined the Advanced Materials Processing and Analysis Center (AMPAC) and Mechanical Materials Aerospace Engineering at the University of Central Florida in Fall 1997 after a postdoctoral work at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, University of California, Berkeley.
At UCF, he pioneered nanostructured cerium oxide and other metal/oxide platforms (micro to nano) and discovered its antioxidant properties and applied in various biomedical problems. He is also involved in plasma based large scale manufacturing of coatings and nano-energetics materials.
At UCF, Dr. Seal served as Nano Initiative Coordinator for VP-Research. He is the Director of Nanoscience Technology Center (tenure unit) and Advanced Materials Processing Analysis Center and Professor till 2017, and now the Chair of Materials Science and Engineering and holds an appointment with the College of Medicine.
He is the recipient of the 2002: Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award (ONR-YIP), JSPS fellowship, Alexander Von Humboldt Fellow, ASM IIM Lecturer award, Royal Society of England - Visiting Professor Distinguished Fellowship at Imperial College, UK, Academic Trail Blazer Award and Schwartz Tech award.
Dr. Seal is the recipient of Fellow of FASM, FAAAS, FAVS, FIoN, FAIMBE, FNAI, FECS and has won multiple teaching and research awards from UCF. He has more than 400 journal papers, conference proceedings papers, book chapters, and three books on nanotechnology (including one on Nanoscience and Technology Education) and has 64 issued patents (more pending).
He received his BTech-Hons from Indian Institute of Technology (KGP) in Metallurgy and Materials Engineering and subsequently worked for TATA Steel India, MMet, University of Sheffield, UK, and received his Ph.D. from U Wisconsin (UWM). He is an active member of ASM Intl and served on many ASM committees. He has graduated more than fifty PhD, MS, postdoc/researchers and mentored many undergraduate students.
