Updated on Mon, 04 June 2012 at 17:33 IST

Banaras Hindu University (BHU) will be setting up state-of-the-art Stem Cell Research and Bone Marrow Transplantation Centre in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh.

"There are not many centres in the country that carry out such stem cell research. In Uttar Pradesh, though there is sporadic research going on, no such organized state-of-the- art facility is available," said Prof Lalji Singh, vice-chancellor, BHU.

"BHU will have a sophisticated Center like the stem research centre in Hyderabad and Mumbai, meant for inter-disciplinary research for development of new technology in stem cells. It will be a centralised facility where researchers from other life sciences departments as well as Indian Institute of Technology-BHU will be able to carry out research," said Prof Lalji Singh, vice-chancellor, BHU.
