Centre For DNA Fingerprinting and Diagnostics - History


CDFD was conceptualized by then CCMB director Prof. Lalji Singh. It evolved into its current form of a modern institution encompassing both basic and applied research in diverse areas of modern biology under its founder director, Professor Seyed E. Hasnain (former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Hyderabad), who pursued this aim aggressively during his tenure from 1999 to 2005. The centre is equipped with instrumentation and computing infrastructure to facilitate working in frontier areas of research in Life Sciences. There are twenty two groups working on diverse research areas and the centre continues to attract leaders in related disciplines.

CDFD started its operations at the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, a Council of Scientific and Industrial Research organisation, and was housed in an interim building in Nacharam from early 1999 to December 2008. In 2009, it was moved to a sprawling new building in Gandipet locality at the outskirts of Hyderabad. But, due to some of the governmental objections pertaining to the proximity of the new campus to Osman Sagar lake, any of the wet-lab work was not allowed. As a result, the building raised at Gandipet was completely vacated by CDFD in early 2009

A new laboratory complex was refurbished at Nampally, Hyderabad. The interim complex consists of two separate blocks situated about one kilometer apart within Nampally and houses a temporary hostel building also. The diagnostic screening at CDFD is operated from the Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS). CDFD is actively working towards making permanent campus at Survey of India land at Uppal (5 kms from CCMB) in Hyderabad.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    The principle that human nature, in its psychological aspects, is nothing more than a product of history and given social relations removes all barriers to coercion and manipulation by the powerful.
    Noam Chomsky (b. 1928)

    There is one great fact, characteristic of this our nineteenth century, a fact which no party dares deny. On the one hand, there have started into life industrial and scientific forces which no epoch of former human history had ever suspected. On the other hand, there exist symptoms of decay, far surpassing the horrors recorded of the latter times of the Roman empire. In our days everything seems pregnant with its contrary.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)

    If you look at history you’ll find that no state has been so plagued by its rulers as when power has fallen into the hands of some dabbler in philosophy or literary addict.
    Desiderius Erasmus (c. 1466–1536)
