We are a part of School of Biology at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research. While the permemnant campus for the institute is coming up at Vithura, 40 kms from the city, we are currently functional at the transient campus located in the College of Engineering campus in Thiruvananthapuram. PI of the lab, Dr. Satish Khurana, joined IISER TVM in July 2015 and the first students joined in Dec. 2015, marking a very humble beginning of the group. The interest of the lab lies in the field of stem cells and regenerative medicine with major focus on hematopoietic system.
