Operations of the Cell Repository are currently under suspension for annual maintenance. The operations will likely to be resumed in a month's period.
The National Centre for Cell Science, Pune (NCCS) was established as a National Repository of Animal Cell Culture with a mandate of basic research, teaching & training, and as a national repository for cell lines/ hybridomas etc. It also conducts manpower development in animal tissue culture through training programmes/workshops and extends infrastructural facilities to researchers and institutions in biochemical sciences.
The vision of NCCS is to accelerate research in modern biology to create new knowledge and technologies for human welfare. This will be achieved through (i) basic research in modern biology (ii) human resources development and (iii) serving as national cell repository.
