Trust For Education and Training in Cytometry©

Building Cytometry Community

About TETC

The INDO-US flow cytometry workshops in India were started by Prof. Awtar Krishan in collaboration with Dr. Ranbir Sobti and Dr. Arvinder Singh in 2002. These workshops were started with a vision of bringing experts from India, USA and abroad to the same platform, where their expertise can be harnessed by the participants to understand the basics and advanced concepts in flow cytometry and to apply this insight to their clinical or non-clinical research.
Looking at the increasing demand and requirement of these educational programs, INDO-US Workshops committee decided to form and register a formal non-profit Trust, which can carry on these educational activities all over in collaboration with interested organizations.
