The Science and Engineering Research Board, Government of India has funded a National Network for Mathematical and Computational Biology (NNMCB). The primary goal of this network is to promote research activities and provide training in mathematical and computational biology throughout India.
This network has seven nodes spread across India: Bangalore (principal node), Chennai, Delhi, Kanpur, Kolkata, Mohali and Pune. Each node will organize national and international visitors programmes, lecture programmes in nearby colleges and short workshops. Each node will host student interns interested in pursuing a research career in mathematical or computational biology at institutions located in its region. These interns will be paid a generous fellowship during the period of their internship. In addition, two instructional workshops, a national conference and an international conference will be jointly organized by all the nodes.
Further details on the activities of NNMCB can be found on the website: http://www.iiserpune.ac.in/~nnmcb
Please note: (As of 2017) the SERB project has now been completed. No further support is available.
