Short-term Training Programme


In recent decades, life science research has enabled enormous breakthroughs in our understanding of fundamental molecular and cellular processes and mechanisms of life. Knowledge about genomic organization, studies of protein-protein interactions and the characterization of molecular structures have become central in modern life science research and technology. This knowledge forms the basis of the molecular understanding of health and disease. Biotechnology has marked its presence in medical, industrial, environmental, agricultural, forensics and many more areas directly touching the lives of human beings and is making a significant difference too.


The above program is focused to provide training in career-building topics those are normally not covered in traditional science curricula. Presented through a series of career building sessions, the topics to be discussed include effective negotiation and communication skills for the workplace, successful leadership methods for women, communicating science effectively, working in a team environment, launching and sustaining a successful career in science, establishing a strong inperson and internet presence, publishing in respected journals and writing compelling grant proposals. The sessions will be highly interactive and will also include practicing skills and role playing. Apart from International faculty, distinguished Indian guest speakers would include eminent experts from academia, scientific community, civil society organizations and government organization. A local field visit to examine some initiatives in the area would also be organized to provide first-hand experience of the subjects under consideration.
