Research and innovation are critical components in the progress of any nation and the overall well-being of society. It is through research and innovation that some of the world’s most pressing problems, from healthcare to technology to infrastructure, have been resolved. At Graphic Era University, innovation and research are at the forefront of everything we do. 

Graphic Era University has a long history of fostering innovation and research. From cutting-edge research labs to a team of dedicated faculty members and students, the university is committed to creating an environment that supports and encourages the research endeavors of its faculty and students. As a result, the university has produced some of the most innovative and ground-breaking research projects in the country. 

The latest milestone that has strengthened Graphic Era’s position in the national map of research and academia pertains to the grant of a patent (by the Government of India) to Dr. Varij Panwar, Professor in the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, GEU, for the invention of a flexible Carbon nanofiber/polyelectrolytes-based piezoresistive strain sensing membrane. 

The piezoresistive strain sensing membrane can be used in various medical monitoring applications such as monitoring heart rate, muscle movement, breathing, and other bodily functions. Piezoresistive strain sensing membrane behaves similar to human skin and can work as interface material between human body and machines. The ability to attach these membranes to different body parts means that doctors and healthcare professionals can use them to monitor patients in real-time, providing an accurate and continuous picture of the patient’s health. This technology has the potential to revolutionize the healthcare industry by enabling better and more accurate diagnoses and treatments. 

In addition to medical monitoring, these membranes can also be used for structural health monitoring applications. They can detect cracks in the bridge structure, which can help prevent accidents and save lives. Structural health monitoring can also be used to improve the reliability and lifespan of buildings and other infrastructure. 

Dr. Varij Panwar’s invention is a result of years of dedicated research and development efforts. The patent is a testament to his outstanding contributions to the field of science and technology and is an excellent example of how research and innovation can have a significant impact on people’s lives and society. We are sure it will serve as an inspiration for future innovation and research at the university!
