NCBS annual reports, 1994 - 2017

Identifier: Series 1


The Reports contain an overview into the numerous activities that are headed by the National Centre for Biological Sciences.

They provide an insight into the growth of an Institution with the gradual addition of new faculty, lab facilities and equipment. The development of Biology as a science can be traced in the advancements made by the faculty and their various collaborations with Institutions all over the world. The names of contributing scientists have been recorded along with their accomplishments in the form of fellowships, awards and publications.

The Reports begin with a note from the Director of the Institution which contains the highlights of the year and a brief description of their vision for the future. Most of the content of the Reports describe the ongoing research at the Institute. Every research group has a separate section dedicated to it. The later pages record the publications made, the talks and seminars given, and the honours received by the faculty at NCBS. The outreach programs and events catering to researchers at national and international levels are also made mention of.

In order to summarize the events of the year (or years) as described in the reports, extracts from the Director’s notes have been taken. The academic activities, journals publications and awards, have not been made mention of in the short description as they are numerous. By skimming through the rest of the material, information regarding the addition of new faculty, building of laboratories or new equipment, and prominent collaborations with other institutions have been made note of. Any mention of a change in the administration heads or any other key positions can also be found in the description. The title of the report, the time period it covers and a brief description of all the highlights during that time has been given.

NCBS Annual reports are dated from 1992 - 2017. Please note: This is an active archive and will be updated with the publication of every new report.
