Mr. Govindkumar B, PhD student at IBAB, had been attempting to commercialize the outcome of his doctoral work carried out under the guidance of Prof. Kshitish K Acharya. His research proposal in this regard is now one of the few selected for funding via BIG, BIRAC. We are glad that he also represented IBAB among the prestigious Sytare-Gyti appreciation award winners, which consisted of research students from other premier institutes such as IISc & IITs.
