A National Webinar on Advances in Cancer Biology: Basic to Translational Research
Amity Institute of Biotechnology and Amity Institute of Integrative Sciences and Health organized National Webinar on Advances in Cancer Biology: Basic to Translational Research.
The main objective of the webinar was to explain about Cancer is life threatening disease and second leading cause of the death worldwide. In recent past extensive efforts geared toward in cancer research and clinical manifest, but still it is challenging and needed extensive research to gain therapeutic outcomes. At an early stage it is undetectable, asymptomatic disease and difficult to predict due to poor prognostic biomarkers. Cancer therapeutic has lowest success rate and high mortality worldwide and incidence of cancer is increasing the burden in the society day by day. Therefore, it is important to understand the biology of cancer and essential cellular mechanism, which can translate basic research to the clinic. To keep this in mind the aim of the webinar was conducted to impart the knowledge and learn the update of advances in Cancer Biology from Basic to Translational Research. This interactive forum provides a common platform for exchange of new knowledge, ideas to conceptualize progressive research to battle cancer.
The distinguished scientist of Cancer Biology were Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Awardee Prof. Gopal C. Kundu, Former Director-In charge & Scientist G, NCCS, Pune Director R&D, School of Biotechnology, KIIT, Bhubaneshwar, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Scientist G, Cancer Research Institute (CRI), Advanced Centre for Treatment, Research and Education in Cancer (ACTREC), Tata Memorial Centre, Mumbai and Dr. Santosh Chauhan, Scientist -E and Wellcome-DBT Intermediate Fellow and EMBO Global Investigator, Institute of Life Science, Bhubaneshwar were delivered the invited talk on this webinar.
Prof Gupal C. Kundu briefly talked about advances on the knowledge on Breast cancer heterogenicity and nano particle-based drug delivery for understanding the Tumor Heterogeneity and Development of Multi-targeted Therapy in Breast and other Cancer. Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Principal Scientist, ACTREC Mumbai has explained the Epigenetic alteration in gastric cancer and their potential clinical applications by using HDAC inhibitor. Dr. Santosh Chauhan nicely address the crosstalk of Autophagy and Inflammation in cancer with clinical significance.
Total 90 students, 50 faculties and 36 student and faculties from various other institutes participated in the national webinar. Overall it was very informative and interesting webinar for all the students and faculties.
