The National Post Doc Symposium (NPDS) is an endeavor to bring together Early Career Researchers (ECRs) including Postdocs and late stage PhD scholars in the field of Life Sciences in India. The symposium has been an annual venture, initiated by volunteers from the Post-Doctoral Fellows Association (PDFA) of Bangalore Life Science Cluster (BLiSC) comprising of NCBS, InStem, TIGS and C-Camp.
"The forthcoming national symposium for postdocs and senior graduate students continues a recently started programme that is important and very useful to all participants and institutions. In these very unusual and trying times it is important to continue these discussions and talks that help early stage researchers chart out the best steps in their career. There are diverse opportunities, and there will only be more as we work to build a new future out of this pandemic. All best wishes for a productive symposium"
