This year we have been lucky enough to earn 3 more grants to conduct the researches to fulfill our aim in an ideal way. Additionally, we are pleased to declare that this year we have published 13 new research papers, one student has completed her PhD studies and 3 students have completed their short term dissertation under our mentorship.
But our most remarkable achievement for this year is the successful development of 3 new laboratories. These new laboratories were developed to extend and enhance the researches conducted at the centre.
Cell culture laboratory
A new cell culture laboratory has been developed to study cell behavior outside human body, to generate disease models and to evaluate the effect of various drugs and chemicals on different cells of the eye.
This Imaging facility is developed to study the live cell, its movements and processes in real time and to take pictures of various cells, tissues and body.
A new Cloning laboratory has been developed for cloning of various genes in order to understand their functions.
These cloned genes may also be utilized for the gene therapy.
