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 fourth webinar of series is entitled:
“Strategies on the Application of Stem Cell and its Derivatives Based Therapies for the Treatment of Optic Neuropathies”
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. Leila Satarian received her PhD in Medical Physiology from Tarbiat Modares University, Tehran, Iran. During her PhD and Postdoc at Royan Institute under the supervision of Prof. Baharvand and Prof. Javan, she worked on developing novel strategy for optic nerve regeneration by using neural progenitor cells and also differentiation of the human pluripotent stem cells-derived retinal pigmented epithelium cells. She is leader of Royan Eye Group since 2010 and became a member of Stem Cell Faculty of Royan Institute in 2014. Now Leila Satarian as an Assistant Professor works on both basic (particularly optic nerve regeneration) and clinical (especially RPE replacement) aspects
of retinal regeneration.
