The design and processes of the education at this Centre will be such that it will generate technology savvy solution finders/creators; science entrepreneurs/knowledge economy entrepreneurs and research and development leaders.
Interdisciplinary Ph D programme of the Regional Centre for Biotechnology aims at producing a highly specialized cadre of scientists capable of translating laboratory research to clinical practice with detailed knowledge of both medicine and practice of scientific investigations. The goal of this interdisciplinary Ph D programme is to educate students at the interface of engineering, physical sciences and the biomedical sciences via a flexible structure that permits explorations at the intersections of these disciplines.
Post-doctoral programmes for the young scientists below the age of 35 are being developed, in the areas of active interest at the Centre, for mentoring talent towards the leadership role in biotech science.
The center will be open to industry for enhancing their skills in specific areas. Domain-specific programmes will also be designed for people from basic sciences in nanotechnology, implants and devices, vaccine development and stem cell biology in order to create a cadre of highly specialized scientists for technology development in these areas. Interdisciplinary education and training programme at the Centre will be constantly evolving, and will be a source of new ideas and methods in teaching in biotechnology.
An important focus of expertise building will be regulation, product development, scale up, manufacturing science and bio-entrepreneurship. The Centre will also provide user friendly opportunities for career development and will also be open to industry for enhancing their skills in specific areas required for career advancement. The Centre will have adequate infrastructure for scale-up and process engineering.
