Glimpse of Past Training

Phase I: DHR Sponsored training on Modern Biology in Health Research held during February 1, 2023 to February 28, 2023

In phase 1, 15 participants from medical, science and pharmacy disciplines across the nation were training through 24 technical sessions, 25 hands on sessions, 2 demo sessions along with an exclusive session on presenting research ideas.

Inaugural session

The introductory session of the programme was held at MGMARI in the presence of Dr. S.R. Rao, Vice-President (Research, Innovation and Development), SBV, faculty and scholars of MGMARI.

Week 1 Module: Immunological Domain

Scientific lectures were delivered by the top-notch experts Dr. Maheswaran Mani from Pondicherry University, Dr. Surendran from MGMCRI, Dr. Nimesh Gupta from National Institute of Immunology, New Delhi and Dr. Ravi Mishra from CSIR-IMTECH, Chandigarh. Dr. Parashuram from National Research Council of Italy had given a priming talk on the advances in immunological techniques. This was followed by a hands-on session to isolate and visualize the immune cells, ELISA and WesternBlot.

Week 2, 3 Module: Cell and Molecular Domain

The technical talks were given by the distinguished speakers Dr. Jitendra Kumar from Beckman Coulters Life Sciences, Dr. Arunkumar Dhayalan from Pondicherry University, Dr. Agieshkumar from MGMARI, Dr. Saravanabhavan Thangavel from Center for Stem Cell Research, CMC, Dr. Justin Antony, Tubingen University, Germany, Dr. Anitha, Pondicherry University, Dr. Ilangovan, University of Madras and Dr. Naresh from Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology, Thiruvanathapuram. Parallel to each of the scientific talks, hands-on sessions were arranged to impart both theoretical and practical knowledge in molecular and cellular techniques.

Week 4 Module: Clinical Informatics for Medical Research

The technical talks were given by the distinguished speakers Mrs. Dilshad Pullancherry, Waters, Dr. Balaji Moore, MGMCTC, Dr. Sudipta Bhowmik, MGMARI, Dr. Sujini, Optimal Oncology, Dr. Dhamodharan, MGMARI, Dr. A.R. Muralidharan, Duke-NUS, Singapore, and Dr. Varathamuruthy, Merck. A workshop on “Diagnostic informatics” was provided to the participants at the Digital Library, SBV in collaboration with Dr. Madhavan, CEO, Theomics. Lastly in-order to make the participants aware of statistical tools in biomedical research, one day orientation was provided exclusively on biostastics by an expert named “Dr. Richard” from CMC, Vellore.
