VIT University Founded in 1984 as Vellore Engineering College, the institute was declared a VIT University Founded in 1984 as Vellore Engineering College, the institute was declared a University in recognition of its academic excellence by the Ministry of Human Resources Development, Government of India in 2001. The University has since grown by leaps and bounds – establishing excellent infrastructure replete with state-of-art laboratories, digital library, smart class rooms, hostels, gyms, swimming pools, auditoria , in-door and out-door stadiums spread over an impeccably clean and green 330 acre campus – and is well on its way in fulfilling the vision of the Founder and Chancellor Dr. G. Viswanathan to make it a truly world renowned, top-class academic and/or research institution. VIT today comprises of nine constituent schools and interdisciplinary centers offering undergraduate, post graduate and research programs upto the doctoral and post-doctoral levels. Of the 17, 000 students, largely residential, nearly one fourth are women. About 1200 qualified faculty members and 1000 administrative staff facilitate the process of making them not only professionals but also industry ready, contributing to the growth of the nation. VIT has organized a number of International and National conferences utilizing its awesome facilities. VIT is the first educational institution of India to get ISO 9002 certified by the DNV (Netherlands). It is again the first institute in India to get accreditation from IEE (UK). Apart from being accredited by NBA (AICTE) and NAAC (UGC). . ABET, 111 Market Place, Ste. 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202 -4012, USA (http: //www. abet. org) has accredited the following engineering programs at VIT University, Vellore, India: B. Tech. - Mechanical Engineering B. Tech. – Civil Engineering B. Tech - Computer Science and Engineering B. Tech - Electronics and Communication Engineering VIT has 80 Mo. Us with institutions within India and from countries like Australia, Canada, France, Germany, UK and USA in various disciplines thereby facilitating academic and/or research exchanges involving faculty and students with partner institutions, joint programs involving courses as well as research and improvement of laboratory and library facilities. SBST is offering B. Tech, M. Tech. , M. Sc. , and Ph. D. programs in Biotechnology and many other allied areas. SBST has adequate infrastructure and skilled faculties for carrying out teaching, research and developmental activities in different areas of Biotechnology. Major areas of research include Basic and Applied areas in Biomedical Sciences, Environmental Biotechnology, Biomedical Engineering, Medical Biotechnology and Bioinformatics. Apart from this, several MOUs have been singed with industries to improve the marketability off our students by training them in specific/industry-relevant skill-sets in areas including, but not restricted, to STEM CELL BIOLOGY. About the workshop The establishment and maintenance of stem cells for research and therapy, as well as the use of the latest cutting edge methods and technologies for the same, is gaining in importance and popularity not only in academic and research institutions but also in the industrial sector globally. This aspect should also be seen from the fact that our efforts for establishing and maintaining connectivity with industries and academic institutions would be a win-win situation for all the stakeholders in this process. A fillip to this area of biomedical research was also provided by the award of the Nobel Prize to Shinya Yamanaka, recognizing his as well as his research group’s significant findings on reprogramming of human dermal fibroblasts to establish cells with stem cell-like properties. Target Group Undergraduates, post graduates, research scholars, working professionals in the field of stem cell biology – researchers, clinicians, in silico biologists and allied areas including the evolutionary aspects. Expected Outcome Workshops and training programs in the various facets of Stem cell Biology including evolutionary, mechanistic and clinical aspects in humans and model systems would help not only researchers but also the academicians to update themselves with regard to the path-breaking discoveries in the area of Stem Cells. Further, this program will also bring together leading scientists in the field on a common platform for the exchange of ideas, that can culminate in collaborative research. Also, the in silico component of the training program will provide an opportunity not only the bioinformaticians, but also the experimental biologist/biotechnologists an improved understanding of the rationale and need for academic and research activities in this direction as well. This would help them in better analyzing and mining stem cell-related data to complement their ongoing experiment-based research activities. Last, but not least, this efforts of ours will certainly enhance the quality of the teaching-learning process with positive spinoffs in terms of productivity in the academic and industrial fronts including student-driven internships.
