NEWS AND HIGHLIGHTS

  • IBAB welcomes a new year, and with it, new exciting ventures! The construction of the second floor of the main IBAB building is in full swing, with an anticipated competition date of July 15, 2020. This new space will enable an expansion of IBAB’s research, academic and entrepreneurship activities, and hopefully pave the way for interesting academic collaborations and industrial partnerships.

  • Under the aegis of Bangalore University, a delegation from Bridgewater State University (BSU), Bridgewater, MA, USA, visited IBAB on Jan 3, 2020: BSU is the largest public university in Massachusetts outside the UMass system. The visitors interacted with IBAB faculty and discussed the establishment of a student exchange program between BSU and IBAB.

  • On Jan 6, 2020, IBAB’s MSc students attended the Frontiers of Science Lecture organized by the Indian Academy of Sciences at IISc, Bengaluru. This year’s speaker, Dr. Eric Green, is the Director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), U.S.A. Speaking about: “Entering the Era of Genomic Medicine: Realities and Opportunities”, Dr. Green enthusiastically shed light on both the history, and the future of Genomics, and its potential impact on society. Given Dr. Green’s major contributions to Genomic Medicine over the past three decades – for example, he was part of the Human Genome Project completed in 2003 – his words were inspiring and insightful.
