Post Doctoral Certificate Courses (PDCC) (2022)

Statement of purpose :

Our Post-Doctoral Certificate Courses (PDCCs) provide doctors with the opportunities to observe, learn and apply their experience at their respective places of work. The goal is to impact patient care by empowering doctors with specialised knowledge and diagnostic skills along the way.

Advanced Hematology

The department of Hematology under Anand Diagnostic Laboratory and Neuberg Anand Reference Laboratory provides state of the art diagnostic services in Hematology ranging from routine tests to highly advanced tests including immunophenotyping and flowcytometry for neoplastic and non-neoplastic hematological disorders, hemoglobin electrophoresis, coagulation assays and bone marrow reporting. Close collaboration with the departments of Cytogenetics and Molecular Biology enable a near complete characterization of hematological malignancies as per current recommendations. Support from Neuberg Center for Genomic Studies enables a whole range of sequencing studies that help characterize malignancies and predict their outcome.
