Biomedical Research Methods Workshop Series

(There are six workshops scheduled to take place between October 23rd, 2017 and December 15th, 2017)   

The primary goal of these short term training programs is to intensify the technical expertise of a student, researcher, industry professionals in the field of life sciences to analyse and answer biological questions using modern scientific tools. 
The contents of these workshops are designed from learner perspective and based on contemporary knowledge which is more relevant to the existing research and industry requisites. 
Topics in these workshops range from molecular biology, phytochemical analysis to traditional medicines (Ayurveda concepts). 
Participants will get desirable technical expertise, understand the principles of each experiment, get equipped to solve the scientific and technical problems in research.
There are six workshops scheduled to take place between October 23rd, 2017 and December 15th, 2017. The details of each are as below.
