Resarch Division > Department of Gene Silencing and Stem cell

Sickle Cell Institute Chhattisgarh (SCIC), Raipur .

The Institute believes that stem cell research offers enormous potential to deliver new treatments for currently incurable illnesses, like chronic heart disease, diabetes and Parkinson's dieease and genetic diseases including sickle cell disease. This department will investigate various aspects of stem cell transplantation in sickle cell patients, like risk-benefit ratio, acceptability, patient life quality.

On the back of rising public funding for medical and bioscience research, and emerging commercial and public health opportunities to translate this R&D into patient benefit, there is a real opportunity now to set a clear direction for the State and country’s future endeavours in stem cell research.
