About This Resource

The Young Investigators Meeting (YIM) Series

In order to bring the best of India’s life scientists together, IndiaBioscience organizes the annual Young Investigators’ Meetings (YIM). YIM allows young Indian scientists who represent the future of Indian biology to meet each other, make friendships, start collaborations, and share ideas for developing laboratories. It brings together an eclectic mix of India's best young life science researchers, post-doctoral fellows, renowned Indian and international scientists, representatives of various grant-funding agencies, and science policymakers.

This project of mapping the researchers in the life sciences in India, was inspired by and is an outcome of the 10th edition of YIM (2018) in Thiruvananthapuram. It was initiated to serve as a resource to:

  1. Help locate and connect the community of life science researchers, including (but not limited to) the past attendees of the YIM series
  2. Help map the pool of resources by providing relevant information (location, affiliation, discipline, expertise, and links to lab websites)
  3. Help foster collaborations and cross-disciplinary interactions within the community
