inStem : The new stem cell institute at Bangalore

Jyotsna Dhawan
Director, The Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine (inStem)
Bangalore
   
inStem is a new collaborative initiative where scientists and clinicians will uncover basic stem cell mechanisms for applications in improving human health.

Introduction    
The Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine (inStem), is an autonomous institute of the Department of Biotechnology, located at and nurtured by the NCBS, Bangalore. The mandate of inStem is to serve as the umbrella organization for three initiatives: inStem itself, located at NCBS, Bangalore represents the core intramural program for interdisciplinary basic and translational research in frontier areas of stem cell and regeneration biology, the Center for Stem Cell Research (CSCR) located at CMC Vellore, a center for translational and clinical research in stem cells and regenerative medicine, and an Extramural Program in Stem Cell Research, a funding initiative for support of stem cell research nationwide.    
   
Mission: Collaborative Research, Education, Innovation    
   
The mission of inStem is to create a highly cooperative environment that enables scientists and clinicians to work in collaborative teams or clusters. Through such interactions, inStem will create a critical mass to tackle challenging problems that are beyond the scope of the traditional single principal investigator-driven laboratory. inStem will strive to create a think-tank environment that encourages innovative experimentation by bringing together experimental biologists and clinicians, chemists, physicists, engineers and computational scientists in a common culture.    
   
inStem research programs will be conceived as collaborative team-based approaches to address outstanding questions in stem cell biology with implications for human health. One current initiative is the development of an interdisciplinary international collaboration on cardiac hypertrophy and regeneration spanning a spectrum of investigations from single molecule biophysical platforms through cellular and molecular studies in ES and iPS cells and differentiated cardiomyocytes to cardiac physiology in genetically engineered mouse models, and approaching systems, translational and human studies. Advanced technology groups at the newly established Center for Cellular and Molecular Platform Technologies (C-CAMP) will work closely with teams at inStem. C-CAMP will also manage inStem’s interfaces with industry.    
   
Platforms and Resources    
   
inStem will create platforms and resources that will permit investigators to rapidly engage in interdisciplinary research. inStem will have access to existing high-end facilities at NCBS and develop new platforms jointly with NCBS and C-CAMP as a mission of the Bangalore Biocluster.    
   
Technologies and resources will include genomics, proteomics, structure determination, bio-infomatics, systems modeling, imaging, flow cytometry, HTS assay development, chemical libraries etc.
Cultured cells will include ES cells, iPS cells, adult stem cells (HSC, MSC, epithelial stem cells, muscle stem cells, neural stem cells) of human and model organism origin.

Model organisms: In addition to a sophisticated mouse genetics facility, inStem will develop core facilities for work on Hydra, Planaria, C. elegans, Drosophila, and Zebrafish.
   
   
Academic Educational Program    
   
inStem will engender a vibrant educational and training program for postdocs, graduate students and project trainees. In addition to didactic and practical courses for PhD level training that will be developed jointly with CSCR, C-CAMP and NCBS, inStem will hold workshops and conferences on frontier areas in stem cell research and applications.    
Positions    
   
Located in the Bangalore Biocluster, inStem is built on a new model in science innovation, and seeks excellent individuals at all levels, who are convinced that collaborative endeavor will drive greater basic insight and application. A key focus will be on the creation of a supportive environment for outstanding young investigators, just post-PhD, through a Fellows Program. Because of the focus on interdisciplinary approaches, we encourage scientists from all branches of the natural and physical sciences, engineers and clinicians to apply. In addition to core faculty, individuals heading resource/technology platforms will be will be offered attractive career paths and encouraged to participate in academic research as well develop industry interface programs.

Hello Milind, This is Ajay kaushik this side. I am working

Hello Milind, This is Ajay kaushik this side. I am working on stem cells in Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh-India, as a research scholar. My working area is basicly adult stem cells. I am interested in banking the stem cells for later use of mankind. So it will be great to associate with you as a team so that we can work as a team to tackle the problems in the concerned area.

Waiting to hear from you soon.

You can reach me at ma email id   kaushik.ajay01@gmail.com

Dear Principal Investigators/ Potential employers,

I have just gone through this link and confirm to you that I have related experience in regenerative medical research.

While working as a Research Scientist in transplant surgery unit, department of surgery at University of Glasgow,UK, I have isolated stem cells from Human cord blood, human peripheral blood and human pancreatic ductal epithelium using various isolation techniques. The isolated stem cells were cultured and trans-differentiated into pancreatic islet cells by culturing them in appropriate culture medium containing right colony stimulating factors (CSF) and growth factors (GF) such as zinc, insulin, selenium. Such grown cells were collected using enzyme free medium and used in my research. I have also constructed a mammalian expression vector carrying pre-proinsulin gene and transfected the gene of interest into various cell lines including differentiated pancreatic islet cells for controlled release of insulin to treat the diabetes. This exploits the therapeutic value of treating diabetes using autologous stem cells from peripheral blood (I have isolated stem cells from human peripheral blood which are of 2%).

While working for Senexis Company in University of Manchester, UK, I have trans-differentiated PC125 cells and neruoblastoma cells into neuronal cells by growing them in a medium containing CSF and GF and used these neuronal cells in my research.

At pSi Medica I have tried to use biodegradable porous silicon (nano material) to create various shapes and cultured the embryonic stem cells into these shapes to build new organs from small numbers of stem cells through trans-differentiation mechanism.

These techniques have continued to strengthen the rationale of regenerative medicine, which aims to repair damaged tissues with new cells mobilized from endogenous pools or supplied from exogenous sources.

Recent advances in transplanted cardiomyocytes derived from human embryonic stem (ES) cells have substituted for pacemaker cells in a swine model of atrioventricular block and elicit an ectopic rhythm compatible with the animal's survival.

I have taken voluntary exit from UK Governamental organization as Payband D Scientific manager and willing to relocate in India

I am very keen to carry out the research which I have left sometime back due to other priorities in life. Now I am free from all the responsibilities and would like to achieve new heights in regenerative medical research. I am quite flexible with working hours, location and salary. The potential employers may approach me on muralikaranam@hotmail.com for further details.
