Dear Friends,

Biotechnology is a rapid growing field of applied science with its huge employment in the entire spectrum of human life.The Uttarakhand Council for Biotechnology ( UCB ) aims to further the cause of spread of Biotechnology Education and Research in the State of Uttarakhand, to facilitate human resource development and to develop a framework for encouraging establishment of biotechnology based industries for employment generation and economic development in the State.Apart from in-house research in areas of relevance, it would also provide support services in selected sectors and also give R&D support to Biotech industries in the near by Biotech Park.

The Biotech Park has been initiated with the objective of creating a viable cluster of Biotechnology based industries in niche areas in the State of Uttarakhand. The park is expected to have a main administrative set up, common facility block, meetings and seminar hall, a State-of-the-art incubation centre.

India is very rapidly emerging as Global Leader in the field of Biotechnology undertaking various innovative R&D and industrial development programmes. This website has been updated keeping various stakeholders of the Biotechnology  in mind. I believe this will meet the immediate queries of the stakeholders , Scientists and enthusiastic Research Personals.
