Collagen based Biomaterials from CLRI: An Inspiration from the master
In 1950’s, Collagen attracted Prof GN Ramachandran. He had a neighbor (CLRI) for whom collagen formed the substrate. He sought a sample of pure collagen from CLRI. This was provided. What followed later is history. Triple helical structure of collagen was reported on 7 August 1954. A tall scientific contribution emerged from the Madras group.
Inspired by the contributions of the giant, CLRI continues to strive in the area of collagen-based biomaterials.
