Universitas YARSI proudly present The International seminar and workshop on Molecular Medicine : From Basic Science to Clinical Care to celebrate the 47th anniversary on 15 - 16 April 2014.
By the late 20th century, molecular techniques have led to rapid development of modern biology. Nowadays, molecular techniques such as PCR, Real Time PCR, ELISA, Sequencing, NGS (Next Generation Sequencing), Blotting, IHC (Immunohistochemistry) have been used to investigate genomic, stem cell, telomere, and herbal. In molecular research, an investigation should be translated from basic science to clinical care. One of the examples of molecular research is pharmacogenomics which could translate the basic science research to clinical care particularly in selecting the proper drug based on individual genetic background.
Pharmacogenomics is the study of population genetic variability that affects the use of drug. In particular some drugs might be excellence for most people, but might not be effective some other and even rare side effect might occur in certain population.
Another recent advance in science is the discovery of stem cells and their potential to substitute dead or damaged cells in any tissue of the body. This will most certainly play a pivotal role in initiating new knowledge and techniques to cure diseases.
