This program is designed for beginners of all ages who wants to become confidant in lab techniques. This is a practical hands-on program to train the candidates in animal cell culture, molecular biology techniques and MTT assay using the human embryonic and cancer cell lines for various experiments. It is supported by lectures on cell culture techniques, molecular biology assays, MTT assay, gene/protein expression/interaction networks in hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and cancer cells.

Only 12 seats are available so please register early to confirm your participation. We will update on the website if a batch is full. Each participant will do all techniques real hands-on.

Registration Fees (food & accommodation is not included):   
Rs. 21000/- + Rs. 3600 GST (Total Rs. 24600). Same fees for International candidates.
