Success Stories

All I would like to say is, "The experience at CBIRT was not just great, it was one life changing training. I have learnt a lot and realized my passion in this field. It has made me more confident in terms of carrying out a project. My warmest regards to the entire team!" Also I have gotten a summer project work at IISc in the MRDG Department. It was all because of this training!

“It was a great experience of writing an essay for 3rd DNA Day Article Contest that was organized by the CBIRT on 25th April 2017. It was the great platform to show writing skills as well as to address the DNA day celebration that is commemorated every year for the discovery of the DNA double helical structure. I truly thank CBIRT for providing such an opportunity that not only helps to improve writing skills but also help to know advancements in the participating themes.”

"DNA day article writing contest was a great experience for me to take a step into how scientific articles are written. It has instilled in me the scientific temper required to be kept brimming in order to fair well. My article was about Genetic Testing! This technology is not very widely acceptable even in the 21st century in our country. I think it helped me realize how important it is to indulge in writing texts, so that the layman can also utilize the knowledge. Thank You CBIRT for this opportunity!"
