Training Program

It is not a conventional classroom lecture-based training program. Instead, each selected candidate/trainee will be assigned to a CCMB staff scientist who will supervise/mentor them during the stay. Each student is expected to execute a small project work under the guidance of the scientist. A lecture series on popular science topics, scientific ethics, good laboratory practices, and opportunities in life sciences will be organized for the students. At the end of the program, students must submit a ‘Project Report’ of the work done and also would be required to make a poster presentation.

The program is mainly intended to give students a real-time exposure/hands-on experience to inculcate zeal for research.

Although efforts are made to take into consideration the ‘statement of purpose’/research interest of the selected students (while assigning to different Scientists), it is generally not possible as the allotments are mainly based on the availability of working place(s) in different labs.

Therefore, students should be ready to work in any laboratory of CCMB, if selected, irrespective of their stated research interest.

Application procedure

  • Application, authorization letter from the HOD/DEAN of the Institute/ University/ College for the Summer Program 2023 can be submitted online.
