IRIWI: I Realised I Wasn’t Interested ….

IRIWI: “I Realised I Wasn't Interested" comprises stories of science career transitions, narrated through the experiences of a diverse group of science professionals in India. These narratives capture their unique journeys, encompassing pivotal moments during their career transitions—their 'IRIWI' moments.

The inspirational stories within IRIWI feature scientists who smoothly transitioned to fields like patent law, science policy, and industry shortly after completing their PhDs. Additionally, it includes individuals who honed their skills towards institute, organisation, and ecosystem development, along with those who skill-fully merged their expertise with personal passions such as art and farming.

Infographics by IndiaBioscience

This year, IndiaBioscience proudly brought you two engaging infographics tailored for our life science community in India. We didn't stop there—more than fifty free poster prints of each infographic were generously distributed to researchers across India. These visuals were meant to find a place of honour on the walls of your colleges and laboratories.

Heartfelt thanks go out to everyone who joined in the campaign and shared selfies with our infographics. Your participation made it all the more special!

DEI Infographic: Tenets of our Laboratory

DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) is not a ‘one size fits all’ plan. While it's heartening to witness these values becoming integral to scientific discussions in India, many of the global narratives miss the intricacies of DEI in our context. That’s why our DEI infographic delves deeper, portraying the essence of diversity in India’s scientific landscape through vibrant illustrations and powerful statements. You can get your free lab poster copy from here and embrace DEI uniquely crafted for our community!

Infographic: Research Ethics and Integrity

In the rush of scientific strides, ethics can’t take a backseat. Our ‘Research Ethics and Integrity’ infographic shines a light on crucial ethical boundaries in research. It's essential knowledge in the journey of scientific advancement. You can download your high-resolution, printable copy right here.
