Kolkata: February 8th-12th 2010

Young Investigator Meeting- February 8-11, 2010
Postdoctoral Fellows Satellite Meeting- February 12, 2010

The 2010 Young Investigator Meeting, held near Kolkata in February, brought together an eclectic mix of India's best young life science researchers, post-doctoral fellows, renowned Indian and international scientists, representatives of various grant-funding agencies and science policy makers. The program featured talks, posters and panel discussions where participants had frank discussions on a wide variety of topics ranging from picking research problems, publishing, personnel management and mentorship. Senior scientists described their own scientific journeys providing inspirational as well as amusing anecdotes about their experiences of starting their scientific careers. The bonhomie between the young Indian investigators and post-docs aspiring for jobs in India ensured that the post-docs got a first-hand account of finding jobs and setting up labs in India. The wisdom, experience and guidance of senior scientists will, no doubt, enable the new Indian investigators and future recruits to imbibe a new scientific culture and to work together to make Indian Biosciences internationally competitive and world-class.
