IN­NO­VA­TOR

Tehelka - - ANDHRA PRADESH -

AT THE AGE of 28, when many peo­ple are still try­ing to find them­selves, Joshi is try­ing to find an­swers to some of the

most com­plex med­i­cal challenges of our time. He hasn’t got here by ac­ci­dent; after ac­quir­ing a Master’s in

Bio­med­i­cal En­gi­neer­ing, Joshi is pur­su­ing a PhD in the same sub­ject at IIT Mum­bai. “Con­ven­tional chemo­ther­apy

is in­va­sive and tar­gets healthy or­gans too. I wanted

to look at treat­ment that fo­cusses only on the tu­mour,” he says. Over the past four

years, he has moved sig­nif­i­cantly closer to that goal thanks to his in­ge­nious fus­ing of nan­otech­nol­ogy and

bio­med­i­cine.
