Banaras Hindu University
The great visionary Bharat Ratna MahamanaPandit Madan Mohan Malaviya founded BHU in 1916 at the bank of the holy River Ganges. This institution of international recognition epitomizes a synthesis of ancient wisdom and modern scientific temper. BHU is among the world’s largest residential universities, comprising 6 institutes, 16 faculties, 140 departments, many centers of advanced studies, 05 interdisciplinary schools and rapidly growing south campus of the university located at Barkachha, Mirzapur. Institute of Medical Sciences The Institute of Medical Sciences (IMS-BHU) is one of the six institutes of Banaras Hindu University in Varanasi, India and comprises three faculties, Faculty of Medicine, Dental Sciences, and Ayurveda. The Institute started functioning as College of Medical Sciences in 1960 with nine departments of Modern Medicine and eight departments of Ayurveda, under the leadership of Dr. K. N. Udupa, the Founder Director of the institute. In 1971, the College of Medical Sciences was upgraded to Institute of Medical Sciences. Today it has 33 departments of Modern Medicine including 10 Departments of Super specialties, nine Departments of dentistry, eleven Departments of Ayurveda and a school of Nursing.
Climate & Clothing
The weather in Varanasi in October will be very hot. The average temperatures are between 23°C and 33°C, drinking water regularly is advisable. You can expect about rain in Varanasi during the 3, 4 & 7thOctober. It’s a good idea to bring along your umbrella so that you don’t get caught in poor weather.

Purpose of Workshop
Phage therapy uses bacteriophages to combat bacterial infections. After a brief success a century ago, this antibacterial therapy is now seeing a renaissance after being abandoned (almost) as a substitute for the triumphant chemical antibiotic “warfare,” which now appears to have reached an impasse. Therefore Bacteriophages have drawn greater attention in recent years because of their tremendous therapeutic potential against multidrug-resistant bacteria. The intended 5-day Scientific workshop cum hands-on training will train the participants in techniques involved in the isolation, propagation, characterization and purification of phage. The workshop would also provide an opportunity to learn handling and care for experimental animals and design preclinical and clinical trials with insights from pioneer researchers.
Objectives of the Program
• To train the scientists on bacteriophage harvesting techniques and therapy countrywide.
• To impart an understanding of the role of bacteriophages as therapeutics and biocontrol agents.
•In addition, the workshop also intends to acquaint participants with the advanced molecular tools to analyze the phage genome and its manipulation Programme Impact-Expected Outcome After this workshop, participants will be able to conduct research independently in bacteriophage therapy, with a greater goal to offer a lasting and more robust solution to humankind in physical, five-day workshop will feature Bacteriophage scientists the fight against antibiotic-resistant bacterial infection. This from clinical, aquaculture, veterinary, agricultural sciences and other scientific arenas.
