State First Molecular Human Genetics and Research Laboratory, NIMS Medicity Campus.


Noorul Islam Educational trust has taken an advanced step towards a professional career in Molecular Human Genetics by establishing NIMS Centre for Advanced Biotechnology (NCAB) which is need of the hour as the entire world is focusing on Personalised Medicine. NCAB will coordinate with speciality physician to handle infectious diseases, manage and prevent genetic disorders and lifestyle disorders. Foundation stone for NCAB was laid by Mr Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Minister of state – parliamentary affairs, Govt of India on 29th January 2016. NCAB is equipped with world class instrumentation, reagents and facilities in collaboration with THERMO Scientific and it’s allied companies that are trusted by world top scientists for more than 20 years for its efficiency, accuracy, gold standard technology and service support. NCAB will function on dual campus model where theory classes will be held at Noorul Islam university campus and practical sessions at NCAB, NIMS Medicity campus with case studies, research activities, Gene Therapy research activities, Preimplantation genetic screening/ Diagnosis, etc. After calibration and final testing, this facility at NIMS Medicity will be open to patients use from June 2017.
