Imambaras. The exquisite monuments that were built during
the ancient times are still preserved for the present to see and
cherish. It is well connected to all parts of India by road,

Greetings from the organizing committee. It is a great honor
and privilege for us to invite you to the upcoming XXXVIII All
India Cell Biology Conference and International Symposium on
“Cellular Response to Drugs”. There is a constant need to
update our knowledge with the latest developments in
research. In this pursuit our effort will be to bring some active
researchers in their field with excellent science in the form of
invited lectures, oral presentations, poster sessions and other
informal academic interactions in the meeting.
CDRI, being a drug research institute, may offer a flavour
different from those seen in earlier Cell Biology Conferences.
The scientific content will include sessions not only in areas of
basic cell biology but also those related to diseases, treatments
and therapies. Your presence will enrich the scientific and
intellectual milieu of the conference immensely apart from
encouraging fruitful interactions.
The deliberations will focus on the following broad areas:
Basic Cell & Developmental Biology, Genetics and Evolution
Life style diseases and Neurobiology
Stem cells and Nano-therapeutics
Neoplastic and Infectious disease: Mechanisms and
Functional genomics and Epigenetics
Plant biotechnology
Central Drug Research Institute (CDRI) is one of the premier
institutes of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research
(CSIR) of India headed by the Prime Minister of the nation as
its president. It is considered to be a pioneer research
organization in the field of biomedical research where all the
infrastructure and expertise are available to develop a drug
right from its concept to market. The very latest techniques
and methodologies are employed for developing drugs,
diagnostics and vaccines to combat diseases prevalent among
mankind in general and Indian population in particular.
