School of Biosciences, IMS UC, Ghaziabad organized Symposium on "Basic & Translational Oncology: Diagnosis & Research" & 5th Annual Scholar's Science Meet of Society of Biomedical Laboratory Scientist (SBLMS) on 24 January 2020. The symposium was focused on basic concepts of tumor diagnosis and prevention though translational outcomes of molecular markers or chemotherapeutics.
Dr. Sapna Rakesh welcomed the scientist, members of SBLMS, research scholars and the students, in her address she conveyed her gratitude towards SBLMS for the association and the interactive session on Basic & Translational Oncology. Dr Piyush Jain, Physician & Incharge NCD Clinic, Agra Medical College, Agra, Dr Dhruv Kumar, Associate Professor, Amity Institute of Molecular Medicine & Stem Cell Research, Dr. Gaurav Verma, Scientist, ICMR, NICPR, Noida delivered their talk.
Dr Piyush Jain in his inaugural address focused on the early detection and prevention of tumor, as the burden is high in the country due to bad life style, unhealthy diet and lack of physical activity. He prompted risk factors associated with different types of tumor in Indian population. He broadly spoke on current scenario of tumors in Indian population. Lakshit Sharma Alumni of M.Sc. Biotechnology also discussed his work on epigenetic events associated with the breast cancer cells, along with various aspects of DNA hypermethylation which causes epigenetic silencing of specific tumor suppressor genes.
In the valedictory session Dr. S.D. Mehta, President SBMLS facilitated Dr. Piyush Jain with Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Lifetime Achievement Award. Symposium was concluded with great success where the scientist and the scholars shared their research and knowledge on Basic & Translational Oncology.
