Prof. Yathindra felicitated at BangaloreBio-2017
Both Prof. Sharat Chandra (Chairman, IBAB) and Prof. Yathindra (Director, IBAB) – and also Prof. G Padmanaban (former Director of IISc) – were felicitated at the recently concluded BangaloreBio2017 for their long-term contributions to the biotech sector in Karnataka and the country. The felicitation was organized by the Department of IT, BT and S&T (GoK) and KBITS.
It was a very nice ceremony, where the Minister of IT, BT, S&T and Tourism (Shri Priyank Kharge), Principal Secretary (Shri Gaurav Gupta) and others were present on stage. By turn, each awardee, together with his spouse, was seated on the stage. A Mysore ‘peta’ was placed on his head, a shawl draped around his shoulders and then he was garlanded. He was also presented with a framed citation. In parallel the citation was read out by Dr. Jagadish Mittur of KBITS.
Later, each awardee said a few words. In a most generous gesture, Prof. Yathindra dedicated his award to his colleagues.
