The 10th Young Investigators’ Meeting was held in Thiruvananthapuram from 5 to 8 March 2018. During this meeting that was attended by YIM alumni from the past ten years, structured discussions were held to understand the pulse of life sciences research in India and brainstorm on the future of Indian life science research. This report, born out of those discussions and recommendations, was published in Current Science on 10 Feb, 2019
IndiaBioscience board member Ron Vale, shares how the Young Investigator Meeting came into being and some thoughts on why India should adopt a research model different from the west to be able to do research that is truly relevant to India.
