Free Hands-on Training Program on Pre-clinical Drug Screening

Organizer: Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai (PMU), Supported by Department of Science and Technology, GOI and Hosted by SVKM’s Dr. Bhanuben Nanavati College of Pharmacy, Mumbai

About the Program

The aim of the training program is to provide a general overview of the practical aspects of preclinical drug screening in various facets of drug discovery and development. The sessions are interactive, meet experts as well as receive “hands-on experience on the Power lab data acquisition system, ELISA plate reader, and Auto analyzer. Techniques such as artery and vein cannulation, BP and ECG recording, spirometry, Nerve conduction velocity recording, MTT assay, apoptosis assay, basic cell culture techniques, and experimental pharmacokinetic studies will be showcased.
