Molecular signaling is particularly important in the present Omics era, with numerous emerging tools enabling cellular and sub-cellular studies at finer resolution, which in turn proves vital for driving research on fundamental aspects in biology.
Dept. of Zoology, Savitribai Phule Pune University
Dept. of Zoology, Savitribai Phule Pune University is one of the first departments to be established in the erstwhile Pune University, and has made its mark in diverse areas of fundamental research in life sciences. Biological research at cellular, sub-cellular as well as organismal level is carried out in the department, and the status Centre for Advanced Studies (CAS) has been awarded by the University Grants Commission (UGC).
National Centre for Cell Science
National Centre for Cell Science is an autonomous organisation aided by the Department of Biotechnology, Government of India. It is located within the academically-enriched campus of the SPPU. Since inception, NCCS has been carrying out cutting-edge research in cell biology and has been providing valuable services as a national animal cell repository as well as supporting human resource development through various teaching and training programmes. NCCS has been at the forefront of basic research in diverse fields of cell biology, especially those addressing paramount human health issues like cancer, metabolic and infectious diseases, and regenerative medicine.
