Life sciences

The advanced centre has following equipments for life science research work.

a) PCR Thermocycler - A PCR thermocycler (also known as a PCR machine) is a laboratory instrument that heats and cools samples in repetitive cycles to facilitate DNA or RNA amplification through the polymerase chain reaction

b) Gel Documentation System - Gel documentation, or gel imaging, systems are used to record and measure labeled nucleic acid and protein

c) UV Transilluminator - UV-transilluminators are used to view DNA (or RNA) that has been separated by electrophoresis through an agarose gel.

d) Laminar flow hood - Laminar flow hoods are ventilation devices used within the lab to provide an aseptic work area

e) BOD incubator - BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand) incubator is a device in which incubation process is done for growth of microbial culture..

f) UV-Visible spectrophotometer - it refers to absorption spectroscopy or reflectance spectroscopy in part of the ultraviolet and the full, adjacent visible spectral regions. This means it uses light in the visible and adjacent ranges.

g) Autoclave - An autoclave is a pressure chamber used to carry out industrial and scientific processes requiring elevated temperature and pressure different from ambient air pressure.

h) Anaerobic chamber - for Growth of anaerobic bacteria culture in an an anaerobic environment.

i) ELISA and ELISA reader - An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, also called ELISA or EIA, is a test that detects and measures antibodies in your blood.

 

Metal and Metallurgical Research

In area of physical behavior of metallic elements which include tensile, flexural, compression and photometric properties of dental material. The Advanced Centre has following equipments for metallurgical testing

a) Universal Testing Machine - A universal testing machine (UTM), is used to test the tensile strength and compressive strength of materials.

b) Surface Roughness Tester - A roughness tester is used to quickly and accurately determine the surface texture or surface roughness of a material.

c) Spectrophotometer Reflectance for solid material - Reflectance difference spectroscopy is a spectroscopic technique which measures the difference in reflectance of two beams of light that are shone in normal incident on a surface with different linear polarizations.

d) Stereomicroscope and Morphometeric analysis - The stereoscopic  is an optical microscope variant designed for low magnification observation of a sample

e) Vicker’s Microhardness Machine - The Vickers hardness test is a test performed to measure the hardness of materials, specifically thin sections and small parts.

f) Bite Force Tester - Bite force is considered as one of the major indicators of the functional state of the masticatory system, which is dependent on the craniomandibular structure comprising functional components such as muscles of mastication, joints and teeth.

 

Office of Research

The Office of Research is located on the First Floor, Dental OPD. View map.

The research mission of I.T.S Dental College is to support development of new knowledge in oral health science and related fields that will contribute to improved health. Essential to this mission is promoting an integration of basic, translational, clinical and health services research along with associated educational programs.

Through the Office of Research, the college supports:

  • Outstanding faculty research for continuing and new investigators
  • Faculty cross-disciplinary research initiatives and centers
  • Research space infrastructure and renovation
 

Research Training and opportunities

We take great pride in the research programs I.T.S Dental College. Our investigators conduct cutting-edge basic and translational science, clinical/health services research, and educational research that is used to transform clinical practice and dental education. Research and scholarly pursuits are essential activities for all faculty, students, and residents. Research fulfills the school's mission to contribute to the knowledge necessary to improve the oral health of the people of, the nation, and the world. Furthermore, research is an essential component supporting the education of dental and graduate students within the college.

Best Young Dental Researcher Award

Awarded to students with innovative ideas to identify and foster exceptional ground breaking research projects.

Other opportunities

For questions about Individual undergraduate and postgraduate Fellowship Awards contact Centre For Advanced research.

We strongly encourage all graduate students to apply for fellowships.  Fellowships vary in amount and are an important source of funding designed to help students meet their research requirements.

 

Research news, events and highlights

Inauguration of Centre for Advanced Research

I.T.S - CDSR has established an Advanced Centralized Research Facility "Centre for Advanced Research". It is the first research Centre in Northern India to provide complete guidance and facility in the area of Biotechnology, Microbiology Genomics, Immunohistochemistry and Dental Metallurgical studies.

The main focus of the Centre for Advanced Research is to provide guidance, training and research facility to B.D.S, M.D.S, M.S.C and M. Pharma students for undertaking their thesis/research work.

The centre for Adavanced Research, I.T.S Dental college was inaugurated on 20th December, 2014.

 

 

Workshop on Blood and Dental Plaque as Molecular Tools- Theories and Practices

A one day workshop on GENOMIC DNA ISOLATION AND PCR titled ‘BLOOD AND DENTAL PLAQUE AS MOLECULAR TOOLS- THEORIES AND PRACTICES’ was organised by Centre for Advanced Research and Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology on 12 th December 2016.

This hands on workshop included an enriching Guest Lecture by Dr. Usha Agrawal, Scientist E, National Institute of Pathology, Safdarjung, New Delhi on Molecular Diagnostic Modalities followed by an interactive hands on session of DNA isolation from Human blood and Dental plaque followed by Agarose Gel Electrophoresis and demonstration of PCR.

The workshop was attended by over 70 participants from various dental colleges and was well appreciated by all.
