Immuno-proteomics makes an important contribution in the field of biomedical sciences. It is not only used for the discovery of auto antigens, but also for identification of various other differentially expressed proteins. This workshop will provide an overview on the importance of immuno-proteomic techniques to identify milieu of proteins in patient samples through understanding of antigen-antibody interactions. The hands-on training techniques will cover 2D-Gel Electrophoresis, SDS-PAGE, Western blotting (WB), Immunoprecipitation (IP) and validation via Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) etc.
Key focus of the symposium:
* Assorted lectures by reputed scientists/faculties on current trends of research
* Hands on training in various techniques
* Demonstration of various immunoproteomic experiments
Our research area focuses on proteomic analysis of inflammatory diseases primarily Arthritis, heart disease, diabetes and neurodegenerative disorders etc. We work in order to bring new clinically useful biomarkers which can diagnose the disease at early stage. It will help researchers in designing therapeutic moieties for clinical benefits. The lab also conducts in-silico and in-vivo studies of natural compounds for the therapy of inflammatory disorders.
