Laboratory Analysts Training

Since Biotechnology laboratory was established, 5 technicians have been trained in Cytogenetics, Molecular Genetics, and Immunology inside the country or even overseas. The training also encompasses reagents preparation so that they are ready to assist laboratory technicians in services and also research. To anticipate partnership with overseas scientists, they also join an English course inside the Faculty and are financed by CEBIOR. The laboratory technicians are persevering with training inside the country and overseas to keep on improving their abilities.  A technician has even received a scholarship from RUNMC in Nijmegen for Molecular and Cytogenetic three-months-training especially in prenatal diagnosis.

Training Staff

The improvement in abilities and skills of CEBIOR staffs are achieved by training and attending scientific programs inside or outside the country. Some staffs have already attended training in AMC Amsterdam, RUNMC Nijmegen, Vrije University Medical centre, Amsterdam, Erasmus Medical Centre, Rotterdam, Prince of Wales Hospital Sydney, UKM Malaysia, MIND Institute, UC Davis, USA, Tottori University, Japan, and KK Hospital, Singapore.

In house training/Hands on training

Many staff members of FMDU especially postgraduate students have been trained in CEBIOR. Laboratory training for technicians and scientists from outside of the university/hospital is also offered.  Some centers already sent their staff such as from University of Sumatra Utara Medan, Padjadjaran University Bandung, and Gadjah Mada University (UGM) Yogya. Infertility teams of UGM and Permata Hati foundation have sent their staff to join courses on Cytogenetics. Laboratory technicians from Padjadjaran University, North Sumatra University, Santosa Hospital Bandung West Java and Prodia Laboratory have also joined training activities in CEBIOR for several months.
