Research Assistant. Prof. Khandmaa Dashnyam Core Faculty
Institute of Tissue Regeneration Enginnering (ITREN)

Dashnyam Khandmaa received her Ph.D degree in Tissue engineering from Dankook University in 2017. She studied the synthesis of silica microcarriers and their therapeutic role for the upregulation of angiogenesis through dual effects of silicate ion and growth factor during her Ph.D program.

Following her graduation, she worked in Institute of Tissue regeneration and engineering ( ITREN ) as a postdoctoral researcher and studied the anti-inflammatory nanoparticle delivery as a therapeutic cargo to the temporomandibular joint disorder and natural nano-calcium formulation for treating osteoporosis.

Her primary research focuses are studying anti-inflammatory action of therapeutic nanocarriers for osteoarthritis and developing natural based drug for anti-allergy.
