Dear readers,

Its been a while since we shared our last newsletter. The last three months at IndiaBioscience have been action-packed.

YIM 2018 just got concluded. If you'd like to know  more about how did it go, here's our report from  the event. At the start of the year, we organised a session on careers in science at CCMB, Hyderabad. This session was organised in collaboration with India Alliance and was very well received by the students. More details are available in this report. Our science career sessions are becoming quite sought-after and we've been involved with two more such sessions, one in Guntur and the other in Tezpur. We've also come up with an e-booklet on careers in science. Its freely available on our website. Do take a look and share.

Our special series, JOYI– chronicling the life of young researchers in India, has been receiving a lot of viewership. If you haven't yet read these articles, catch them here. Better still, if you would like to contribute to this series, write to us with your idea.

And now, here are the stories we've been chasing these past months. Enjoy.
