The Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Govt. of India, Indo‑U.S. Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) and WINStep Forward are partnering to support the prestigious Khorana Program for Scholars named in honor of Dr. Har Gobind Khorana, who won the Nobel Prize in 1968 for his work at the interface of Chemistry and Biology while a member of the University of Wisconsin-Madison faculty. The Khorana Program will provide opportunities to Indian students to get research exposure at leading U.S. universities over summer 2024 for a period of 10 – 12 weeks.
The broad objectives of the program are:
- To provide exposure to world class scientific research facilities.
- Nurture the next generation of scientists and technologists to build long term R&D collaborations.
- Enable post-graduate students to pursue higher education and research-based careers.
- Promote capacity building in frontline areas of biotechnology and bio-quantitative sciences.
