Permitted Activities in TCG International Biotech Park

 Compliance Measures in Biotech Parks for Research Operations

Biotech parks are specialized zones designed to foster innovation in biotechnology and life sciences. They offer an environment conducive to a wide range of activities, from research and development to facilitating the development of scientific advancements and collaborations.

At TCG-IBP, our commitment lies in facilitating seamless scientific breakthroughs through a steadfast focus on innovation and research. To ensure smooth operations, it is imperative to have a clear understanding of the permissible activities within a biotech park, thereby avoiding any legal or operational complications.

In this article (Part 1), we will discuss the permissible biotech activities at TCG-IBP, a bustling center of scientific advancement nestled in the heart of Pune city.

Activities Allowed in TCG-IBP 

TCG-IBP supports a variety of activities, facilitating the growth of the biotech industry. The following is a list of a few of the many permitted activities at the park:

  • Genetic Engineering / Gene Engineering

Genetic engineering is a process that uses laboratory-based technologies to alter the DNA makeup of an organism. Scientists use this technique to give an organism new features or characteristics. 

  • Cell Engineering / Cell Culture

The intentional modification or manipulation of cells for a variety of reasons, including improving their function, changing their behavior, or even creating whole new cell types, is known as cell engineering. 

  • Gene Therapy

Gene therapy plays a critical role in biotechnology’s goal of preventing and treating various diseases in the human body. It is a technique that modifies a person’s genes to treat or cure disease by replacing or inactivating a disease-causing gene.

  • Xenotransplantation

Xenotransplantation is a procedure when organs or cells from non-human species are transplanted into humans, to treat diseases or replace damaged organs. It’s a way to help people who need organ transplants but don’t have access to human donors.

  • Allo-transplantation

For patients who are undergoing life-threatening ailments, organ transplantation is often a lifesaver. Allo-transplantation is the process of transplanting organs, tissues, or cells from one individual to another.

  • Bioinformatics 

Bioinformatics refers to the use of computational and analytical tools for the collection and analysis of biological data. In the wake of the recent pandemic and the impending danger of new outbreaks, bioinformatics has a crucial role to play. 

  • Tissue Engineering

Tissue engineering, a field of biomedicine, involves replacing, preserving, enhancing, or restoring various biological tissues using a combination of cells and biochemical components. Its scope encompasses providing potential solutions to health issues related to the heart, liver, and kidney. 

  • Molecular Breeding 

Molecular breeding refers to the use of information about the genes and molecules inside plants or animals to improve future yield, instead of relying solely on traditional methods like selecting the best-looking plants or animals for breeding. For molecular breeding, scientists study the DNA and molecules to choose the ones with desired traits, such as disease resistance or higher yield which leads to better crops, healthier livestock, and more sustainable agriculture.

  • Bio-Immunology Vaccine Technology

Vaccination is one of the safest and most effective ways to safeguard human health against several diseases by improving immunity. At TCG-IBP, we offer comprehensive resources and facilities essential for the research and development of vaccines.

  • Embryo Manipulations

As the number of couples opting for assisted reproductive technology (ART) rises, assessing the true risks faced by potential offspring becomes increasingly challenging. Embryo manipulation stands as a remarkable milestone in biotechnology, offering the potential to detect and reduce the likelihood of genetic disorders in babies.
