FundaySunday feat. Mohit K Jolly
5 June 2022 | 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM IST

FundaySunday (FDSD) is an initiative to bring interesting/funny/self-descriptive ways of science communication to our audiences.
The Season 2 of FDSD kickstarts with a talk by Mohit Kumar Jolly, Assistant Professor at the Centre for BioSystems Science and Engineering (BSSE) at IISc Bangalore, where he will use memes to talk about his research. Anyone in need of a hearty laugh is welcome to join.

Research assessment and preprints in India
7 June 2022 | 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM IST

Preprints facilitate wide and free dissemination of research and are an important open science tool, but they are not broadly recognized as part of research assessment frameworks in India. ASAPbio, Open Access India, and IndiaBioscience are hosting a workshop for Indian researchers to explore challenges associated with current assessment frameworks and how preprints can fit within research assessment in the country. We invite Indian researchers to join our workshop on June 7 to learn more about preprints and inform our next steps to support greater recognition of preprints in India.

The 3rd conversation of this series is with a well-known physician-researcher Vishva Mitra Dixit who is the current Vice President of Early Discovery Research at Genentech.
