NEWS AND HIGHLIGHTS

  • On July 4, 2022, IBAB was proud to lay the foundation for the Antivenom Research and Development Centre (AVRDC), an initiative funded by the Karnataka Innovative & Technological Society (KITS) of the Department of IT/BT, Government of Karnataka, and developed in collaboration with the Evolutionary Venomics Lab, Centre for Ecological Sciences, Indian Institute of Science. The foundation stone was laid by Dr. C.N. Ashwath Narayan, Karnataka Minister for IT-BT and S&T, and IBAB Director, Prof. Hosahalli Subramanya. The 16000 sq. ft AVRDC will house state-of-the-art facilities for snakebite research and also maintain snakes and other venomous creatures like scorpions and spiders etc. collected from different parts of the Indian sub-continent in a world-class serpentarium. Moreover, AVRDC will serve as an incubation space for start-ups pursuing biodiscovery research on venoms. One of the highlights of the centre is its thrust to develop regional antivenoms, including those against venomous creatures that are local to Karnataka.Some other articles covering the event are listed below:

  • The recently completed second floor of IBAB, which will harbor academic and research facilities such as new MSc classrooms, the High Performance Computing Facility, a FACS facility funded by the DBT-Builder grant, etc. was inaugurated on July 4, 2022, by Dr. C.N. Ashwath Narayan, Karnataka Minister for IT-BT and S&T, and IBAB Director, Prof. Hosahalli Subramanya. As IBAB expands its educational and research programs, we anticipate that the second floor will become a bustling hub for students and scientists to interact and exchange ideas.

  • As we bid goodbye to the MSc10 batch of IBAB graduates and get ready to welcome a new batch of students into our MSc program in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics (degree awarded by Bangalore University), we are proud of the research work that the MSc10 students performed for their thesis projects. Their work was showcased in a poster session on July 15-16, 2022, which was well-attended and well-received.
