Director – Research & Development
Piyush Modak is Director of Research & Development for Endomedix. Piyush joined Endomedix in 2010. Her prior experience includes a focus on polymers, both synthetic and natural, for tissue engineering and other biomedical applications. She has particular expertise in cellular interactions with polymer matrices and with the rheology of hydrogels, and has modeled cellular reactions with polymer matrices in cartilage and hearts. Using information from an earlier technology, Piyush spearheaded the development of Endomedix’s proprietary biopolymer technology. She piloted the first use in biopolymer processing of two key technologies, in situ Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and Tangential Flow Filtration (TFF) that has permitted the development of our reproducible platform technology. This development program has featured the consulting contributions of world renowned, technical experts in the fields of polymer chemistry, analytical laboratory testing, filtration membranes and instrument development.
Ms. Modak earned a Btech in Information Technology from the University of Mumbai, India and a MS BME from New Jersey Institute of Technology.
