Training Programs on "Basic & Advanced Cell Culture Techniques"

SDMRIBS offers an interactive hands-on training program in "Cell Culture & Analysis Techniques" to expose participants to a broad range of essential skills required for cell culture & maintenance. This training program is a platform to enhance your understanding of cell culture & analysis techniques as well as principles & operation of biomedical research laboratory equipment with our interactive hands-on & classroom training. The main goal of this program is to provide hands-on training to build confidence in independently handling cell culture laboratories in academic institutions & industry. This program offers laboratory-based tuition using a range of human & animal cell lines, commonly used in biomedical research & the biopharmaceutical industry.

Beneficiaries of the Program

Students & employees from government laboratories/Institutes, Hospitals, Pathology Laboratories, Tissue Banks, Industries, & Universities who are interested:

In setting up a fully functional cell culture laboratory.

Basic & advanced research on cell & cell-based products.

Seeking for a biopharmaceutical industry job.
