NCBS was stationed at the IISc campus. Funding for the new campus at the University of Agricultural Sciences was received from the Department of Atomic Energy, Department of Science and Technology, Department of Biotechnology, Rockefeller Foundation, World Health Organisation, the Wellcome Trust and the Human Frontier Science Program. A meetings and workshops office was developed to bring scientists as teachers to the students at NCBS, other Indian students and those in the Asian-African region. K. VijayRaghavan took over from O.
