PCMD-Royan Institute Webinar Series (Hybrid)
Jointly organized by
Dr. Panjwani Center for Molecular Medicine and Drug Research,
Mustafa(pbuh) Science and Technology Foundation
Sindh Innovation, Research, and Education Network (SIREN)
Dr. Panjwani Center for Molecular Medicine and Drug Research (PCMD), International Center for Chemical and Biological Sciences (ICCBS), University of Karachi, in collaboration with Sindh Innovation, Research, and Education Network (SIREN) and COMSTECH regularly organizes popular lectures on the topics of general interest and need.
PCMD-Royan Institute Webinar Series (Hybrid) is being jointly organized by Dr. Panjwani Center for Molecular Medicine and Drug Research, Royan Institute, Iran, COMSTECH, MSTF, and SIREN. The webinar series is based on the current topics of Biomedical Sciences. The series will provide basic as well as advanced knowledge, skills and academic connections and expert opinions from renowned researchers of both institutes.
The Panjwani Center for Molecular Medicine and Drug Research (PCMD) is a constituent center of the International Center for Chemical and Biological Science (ICCBS). The main objective of the Center is to is to develop an understanding regarding common diseases in Pakistan in order to develop effective diagnostic tools and affordable treatments by using molecular medicinal, chemical and computational methods and to train highly qualified manpower in the emerging new fields of molecular medicine and drug development.
The Royan Institute is an Iranian clinical, research and educational institute dedicated to biomedical, translational and clinical researches, stem cell research and infertility treatment. It is a public non-profitable organization affiliated to Academic Center for Education, Culture and Research. It was established in 1991 by the late Dr. Saeid Kazemi Ashtiani as a research institute for Reproductive Biomedicine and infertility treatments. In 1998 this institute was approved by Ministry of Health as Cell Based Research Center with over 46 scientific members and 186 lab technicians.
The second webinar of series is entitled:
“Mesenchymal stem cell derived extracellular vesicles: considerations and therapeutic applications”
This webinar aims to discuss the therapeutic potential of naturally secreted micro- and nanoscale extracellular vesicles (EVs) as attractive candidates for regenerative medicine and pharmaceutical science applications. To date, the results of numerous publications have shown the practicality of using EVs to replace mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) or liposomes. In this talk, some of these findings will be discussed.
Who Should Attend?
All undergraduate and graduate students as well as scientists and researchers working in the fields of molecular biomedicine, stem cells and regenerative medicine, tissue engineering and other biomedical disciplines.
Dr. Faezah Shekari: is a member of Royan Extracellular Vesicle Group. She graduated in B.Sc. and M.Sc. of Cellular and Molecular Biology from Tehran University. During her undergraduate studies, she got interested in proteomics. She joined Royan Institute in 2005 to pursue her interests on membrane proteomics. During her PhD thesis, she got interested in subcellular fractionation and organellar proteomics under supervision of Dr. Hosseini Salekdeh and Prof. Baharvand. She performed international projects including membrane proteome analysis of liver microsomal fraction from international membrane proteomics initiative (MPI) as well as prepared and characterized standard sample for Asian and Oceania human embryonic stem cell MPI under supervision of Prof. Yu-Ju Chen (from Academia Sinica, Taiwan) and Dr. Hosseini Salekdeh and Prof. Baharvand (from Royan institute) in Academia Sinica. Currently, she works as an Assistant Professor in Royan Extracellular Vesicle Group. She is also chair of ISEV Rigor and standardization task force: https://www.isev.org/page/conditionedmedium
