BENGALURU: The Infosys Foundation is donating five crore rupees as corpus funding to the Bangalore Life Science Cluster, for 35 early-career researcher travel awards each year for international travel and stay at research laboratories outside of India.

 The Bangalore Life Science Cluster is composed of three premier centres for biological research – the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS), the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine (inStem) and the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Platforms (CCAMP).
 This travel support will be a tremendous opportunity for students and post-doctoral researchers at the Cluster to broaden their horizons, train in the latest research techniques worldwide and make new connections.
 Of the 400-odd students and post-doctoral researchers at the Cluster, around 200 travel abroad every year to attend conferences or to spend time with the research groups of scientists who collaborate with faculty members from this campus.
 “What better way to gain such engagement and traction in the international arena of science than sending our students and post-doctoral fellows to attend meetings and workshops abroad and engage with the best laboratories globally.
