Ignite Life Science Foundation, Cactus Communications, and IndiaBioscience have come together to co-host this live online event. In a relaxed and conversational format, the interlocutor for each session will uncover the background story of the work and life of an eminent scientist. This will not only afford students, young scientists, and the science-curious in India a first-hand/ringside view of what it takes to become successful in science but also give them an opportunity to direct questions to the invited scientist. This is a platform for students, young Indian scientists, and the science-curious to connect with the stories behind the work of eminent scientists, in preparation for their own journey in science.
This series of online live events will explore the lives and work of scientists in an informal chat session. This is the third in the series.
