National Centre For Cell Sciences, Pune
 

The National Centre for Cell Science (NCCS), an autonomous institution aided by the Department of Biotechnology, was established in 1988 as a national repository for animal cell lines and hybridomas. It is located in Pune, within the academically-enriched campus of the University of Pune.

The Mandate of NCCS encompasses three main functions:

  • National Cell Repository
  • Research & Development
  • Human Resource Development

  • National Cell Repository

    The national cell repository was established to acquire, maintain & supply cell lines and hybridomas. In addition to serving as an important support unit for various in-house research activities at NCCS, its resources and services are also available to other research institutions, universities and industries.


    Research & Development

    The basic research carried out at NCCS mainly focuses on elucidating the fundamental molecular mechanisms underlying the functioning of cells, especially those with relevance to human health. The scientists at NCCS carry out research in diverse areas of modern cell biology spanning Cancer Biology, Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology, Infection and Immunity, Chromatin Architecture and Gene Regulation, Structural & Computational Biology, Signal Transduction and Microbial Biology, using conventional as well as modern approaches like genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics.


    Human Resource Development

    The centre supports capacity building with teaching and training in the area of animal cell and tissue culture, through workshops for technical staff, students and other researchers from NCCS as well as other organizations. Furthermore, training and mentorship is provided to young researchers, including research associates, Ph.D. students, research fellows, project assistants, project trainees and summer trainees admitted through various programmes.


    Other Activities

    The Microbial Culture Collection (MCC) was established at the NCCS by the Department of Biotechnology (DBT) in April 2009, with a broad charter to preserve, characterize and authenticate microbial resources. MCC is now an affiliate member of the World Federation for Culture Collections and registered with the World Data Centre for Microorganisms. In April 2011, MCC was recognized by the World Intellectual Property Organization, Geneva, Switzerland as an International Depository Authority (IDA) for the deposit of patent microorganisms under the Budapest Treaty. The services offered by MCC include culture deposit services, supply and identification of microbial cultures.
