Two-day seminar on molecular medicine

Special Correspondent

COIMBATORE: The PSG Institute of Medical Sciences and Research (PSG IMSR) will conduct on June 27 and 28 a seminar on Molecular Medicine with the support of the Indo-U.S. Science and Technology Forum of the Central Government.

Five biomedical scientists from the University of Minnesota in the U.S. and five from across India will form a panel of experts in the interactive programme, Principal of PSG IMSR S. Ramalingam said in a press release.

Molecular research is a new and emerging speciality, related to understanding the pathogenesis of diseases at the molecular level.

Treatment

The knowledge thus obtained helped in designing specific molecular tools for diagnosis, treatment and even prevention.

Advances in genetics in the late 20th century and molecular biology had led to the birth of this new and powerful filed that held the promise of personalised treatment.

There were, however, differences among individuals of various ethnic groups -- both within the country and across nations.

The symposium aimed at bringing out similarities and differences between India and the U.S.

Studies

Extensive work on this field was on in both the countries, he said. The PSG Centre for Molecular and Medicine and Therapeutics was also into studies in this field, he said.
