In the continuation of the vision of SSIMSRC, Department of Microbiology is conducting National CME and workshop on Role of molecular techniques in the diagnosis of infectious diseases.
Improvements in diagnosis, treatment and prevention of infectious diseases and cancer are closely lined to the development of state-of-the art techniques and the future progress of infectious diseases research. The dissemination of information about current and future techniques and infectious diseases treatment from the researchers developing the treatments to the physician who treat the patients is crucial in order to ensure advances in infectious diseases and cancer treatment, diagnosis, and prevention.
It is the advances on the cutting edge of translational research that bring about improvements in patient care. Dissemination and exchange of ideas about current and future techniques are imperative to expanding the knowledge base of physicians and thereby, creating a higher standard of care for the patients.
The plenary sessions are designed to describe the latest laboratory breakthroughs in the context of the potential impact on patient care. Topics include advances in molecular epidemiology and workshop on real time PCR for diagnosis of infectious diseases. The invited guest and the topics delivered are as under:
More than 300 delegates across the country participated.
The CME was followed by Quiz competition and Poster presentation for the Post graduate students.
