Emerging Trends in Research-Emphasis on Basic Medical Sciences
An International e-conference on “Emerging Trends in Research-Emphasis on Basic Medical Sciences” BMSe-CON-2020 was organized by the Departments of Anatomy, Biochemistry, Physiology and Centre for Biomedical research of Aarupadai Veedu Medical College, Pondicherry (Vinayaka Missions Research Foundation) from 17th -19th September 2020. The conference had 1210 confirmed registrations and 179 papers for oral and 44 for Young Research Scholar Award presentations in Faculty, PhD, Postgraduate and Undergraduate categories. E-Posters competition was also held for undergraduates. There were 20 eminent national and international speakers. Apart from guest lectures there was a panel discussion on “Enabling research in the Institute” and an e-workshop on Molecular techniques - Basics for beginners.
The theme of the conference: “Emerging Trends in Research-Emphasis on Basic Medical Sciences” was chosen because basic science research is not only essential but is also crucial to enhance knowledge and help understand a particular subject in depth. The information thus gathered with respect to the changes in the cells and the molecules associated with any disease process help clinicians to offer better health care delivery. Research demands critical thinking, logical reasoning and creative application by exploring research trends. The next generation Professionals should be aware of the latest research advances and have to be assertive in their practices which should be evidence based for efficient and effective patient care.
Focus of this conference was on:
Recent advances in basic medical science research and its application in diagnostics and medical education with special emphasis on:
- Artificial intelligence
- Medical robotics
- Alternate animal models for research
- Molecular biology
