MD/MS/M.Ch,/DM/DNB qualified surgeons/physicians/super specialists from allopathy, undergraduate or postgraduate degrees equivalent to and recognised by the Medical Council of India are eligible for admission.
Candidates should have six months of basic molecular biological background in basic research. The basic research in molecular biology of human body science is the first time in India to give research background to qualified physicians and surgeons to practice medicine.
The two-year fellowship programme will have FDA regulations, ethics, emerging technologies in stem cell, pre-clinical studies, mesenchymal stem cell isolation and transplantation, etc
Dr Pradeep Mahajan, Regenerative Medicine Researcher, StemRx Bioscience Solutions, Navi Mumbai said, “The fellowship course has been designed to ensure that qualified individuals get the required theoretical training as well as practical exposure to learn the intricacies of research in the field of RM. Candidates will be able to pursue their research in this field and contribute to the ever-increasing need for novel therapeutic technologies. It would improve the practice of regenerative and cellular medicine and hopefully obviate the need for regulatory action in some cases.”
