Abstract:
Microorganisms develop resistance to antimicrobial compounds, which is an important global health threat. As per the World Health Organization (WHO) report, antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the leading causes of mortality worldwide. To overcome antibiotic resistance, nanoscale antimicrobial agents can be used as an alternative strategy. Different types of nanoparticles (NP) such as solid lipid (SL) NPs, liposomal NPs, polymer-based NPs, inorganic NPs, magnetic NPs, mesoporous silica NPs, and carbon nanomaterials are used for drug delivery. Metal nanoparticles (NPs) such as copper (Cu), titanium (Ti), silver (Ag), gold (Au), and zinc (Zn) have antimicrobial activity. The antimicrobial properties of NPs depend on size, chemical composition, and shape of these NPs. The present chapter reviews the application of various nanoparticles as antimicrobial agents and their potential application against multidrug-resistant microbial pathogens in public health. Advancement in nanomedicine is an important aspect for diagnosis and treatment of diseases induced by drug-resistant microorganisms.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
