The INDO-US flow cytometry workshops in India were started by Prof. Awtar Krishan in collaboration with Dr. Ranbir Sobti and Dr. Arvinder Singh in 2002. These workshops were started with a vision of bringing experts from India, USA and abroad to the same platform, where their expertise can be harnessed by the participants to understand the basics and advanced concepts in flow cytometry and to apply this insight to their clinical or non-clinical research.
Looking at the increasing demand and requirement of these educational programs, INDO-US Workshops committee decided to form and register a formal non-profit Trust, which can carry on these educational activities all over in collaboration with interested organizations. We are happy to inform you that this above mentioned trust has been registered as “Trust for Education and Training in Cytometry (TETC)” in 2018, which is officially organizing the Virtual 22nd INDO-US Flow Cytometry Workshop from 22nd Feb to 28th Feb 2021.
TETC carries out cytometry educational activities all over India and outside India in collaboration with interested organizations. The sole aim of TETC is to provide a platform for biomedical students, technicians and scientists to gain the basics and advanced knowledge about cytometry directly from national and international faculties, who are involved in education and training in cytometry all over the world. This education and training in the use and applications of cytometry in biological and biomedical research and diagnostics is provided without any preference for sex, age, racial or national origin.
TETC works under the leadership of Prof. Awtar Krishan (Patron). TETC has 3 Trustees namely Drs. Rekha Gour, Arvinder Singh & P. N. Razdan and 1 Managing Officer, Dr. Hemant Agrawal and 1 Supporting Staff, Mr. Prakash Santani.
