About ETBDD

Designing of disease specific drugs is gaining great attention of scientific communities now a days. At present physicians often struggle to find the right treatment therapy that is most effective for the patients. Thus, scientists are now putting more and more efforts to fulfil the demands of physicians and improve patients compliance. This symposium is organized with an aim to provide budding researchers an exposure to recent trends in drug discovery following various directions, e.g. stem cell therapy, recent trends in drug delivery system and role of pharmaceutical industries. Lectures held during this symposium will cover broad range of hot topics in the area of drug designing to their market value, so the students pursuing their studies in the same streams as well as in other streams will benefit by attending the talks given by experts of the areas mentioned above.

Key focus of the symposium:

Challenges in drugs delivery systems

Stem cell therapy

Treatment without medicine: PLACEBO

Scenario of pharmaceutical education in India etc.

About Organizer

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.



About CSIR- IGIB

CSIR-Institute of Genomics & Integrative Biology (IGIB) is a premier Institute of Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). CSIR-IGIB is rigorously engaged in research of national importance in the areas of genomics, molecular medicine, bioinformatics, proteomics and environmental biotechnology. Genomics and Molecular Medicine is the major research focus of IGIB. The IGIB group is also involved in studying the molecular basis of human diseases, Indian genome variation: discovery, functional relevance and application, Genome wide analysis of motifs and their functional role in gene expression, Prediction of microRNA-target interaction and studies of their biological significance. IGIB encourages novelty by hosting and providing support to investigators with prestigious fellowships who wish to be mentored with established groups at IGIB.
