Training Programs on "Basic and Advanced Cell Culture Techniques"

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

Beneficiaries of the program

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

In setting up a fully functional cell culture laboratory.

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

Seeking for a biopharmaceutical industry job

Entrepreneurs interested in start-up programs in the area of cell-based research and production.
