About the series

As part of a new Virtual Town Hall Series, IndiaBioscience aims to initiate discussions on contemporary themes relevant to life science research and careers in India. The themes will cover topics such as grants and fellowships, data and policy, education, and evolving aspects of life science research, among other aspects.

Importantly, the series will benefit PhD researchers, Postdoctoral fellows, and Young Investigators, as they interact with colleagues, administrators, funding agencies, previous grant awardees and policy-makers. In doing so, the Town Hall Series follows IndiaBioscience’s mandate of facilitating discussions on the changing life science ecosystem in India.
