Summer Research Programme 2010

Summer research programme is organized every year in SLS as a part of outreach programme sponsored by UGC, since 2004. The main purpose of the programme is to encourage young students mostly B.Sc. and M.Sc. level equivalent students, and high school teachers for research in science. The duration of the course was six weeks. Each participant was allotted a laboratory where he/she performed a small project work and got introduced to modern techniques in biology. Besides this practical training, participants got to attend one research lecture everyday. The lectures were organized in such a way that a vast range of biological research was covered during this period. These lectures were open to all. Many students from nearby colleges and universities attended these talks without registration. This programme was advertised through JNU website as well as through posters that were distributed to universities, colleges, and high schools throughout the country. Responses from the participants are increasing every year.   

This year we received approximately 625 applications, out of which 40 participants were selected, representing all across the country. They were also provided accommodation on JNU campus in the Academic Staff College Hostel. According to their interest they were allotted specific laboratory. 25 lectures were delivered in this programme. The lectures were delivered by scientist from different science schools of JNU as well as from outside JNU including International Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology. In addition, the participants were given an extensive tour of the Advanced Instruments Facility (AIRF), JNU, and the Central Instruments Facility (CIF) of SLS, JNU. The tours exposed the participants to the most advanced state of art equipment that is used in current scientific research in the field of Life Sciences. The programme started on 20th May and ended on 26th June.
