EMBO and DBT have recently signed an agreement that now provides Indian researchers access to EMBO funding schemes. The EMBO-DBT agreement opens up considerable new opportunities for the Indian scientific community.

EMBO and DBT together are undertaking a country-wide dissemination exercise to publicize the newly available schemes (details at https://indiabioscience.org/meetings/india-embo-launch-series).

As an additional bonus to the country-wide events, the team will also include a set of extremely prominent international researchers, who will present their science to audiences at each location.

The Bangalore Life Science Cluster campus is fortunate to feature as one of the venues of this pan-Indian exercise.  In addition to the team from EMBO, our campus will be able to host four eminent scientists including Nobel Laureate Christiane Nusslein-Volhard, Stephen Cohen, James Briscoe and Matthew Freeman. This event on our campus is supported by the DBT, as a part of the celebrations for 30 years of DBT.

The event takes place on the 2nd of February at the Dasheri auditorium and will include presentations by the EMBO team and eminent researchers Stephen Cohen, James Briscoe and Matthew Freeman, along with Nobel Laureate Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard.
