School of Biological Sciences
Dr. Praful Singru and Dr. Ramanujam Srinivasan

 The Indian Society for Comparative Endocrinology (ISCE) and SBS, NISER jointly organized this workshop. There were 12 participants from all over India and total 30 students participated in the workshop. This 5-day event had 6 speakers from Academia, 4 speakers from Industry who also participated in “hands-on-training sessions” to 3 high-end imaging systems. In addition, Dr. Graham Wright, Head, Microscopy Unit, Institute of Medical Biology (IMB), has also taught during the workshop. Students were taught basics of microscopy, confocal microscopy, live cell imaging, use of imaging to explore the steroid-ion channel cross talk, and imaging the membrane dynamics and exocytosis.  Participants were given hands on training in transcardial perfusion, dissection and sectioning of pituitary gland, immunofluorescence, and live cell imaging. This was another exemplary Industry-Academia partnership between NIKON, NISER and Indian Society of Comparative Endocrinology (ISCE)
