STEM CELL REGISTRATION
Date: September 03 2016
Venue: Lala Lajpatrai Institute of Management, Lala Lajpatrai Marg, Hajiali, Mumbai – 400 034
Time: 10 AM to 3 PM
The Participants included Faculty members, non-teaching staff and students. Firstly, Dr. Praveen of Tata Memorial hospital went to each class and explained the importance of Stem Cell Registration which was a motivational factor for the students. Doctors from Marrow Donor registry India (Tata Memorial hospital Initiative) and their assistants collected the blood samples. The blood sample was collected to test for transmissible diseases and for tissue typing which then would be included in the registry of potential donors. When a search request comes in, the tissue type in the registry is compared with the tissue type of patients in need of a transplant and then necessary actions are taken as per the procedure / formalities.
The response was excellent, around 107 students participated.
