    Dear Participants

    About the Sponsors

    We have great pleasure and honour in inviting you to

    participate in Science Academies' Two-day Lecture

    Workshop on “Emerging Trends in Biochemistry” to be

    held on 20 & 21 September, 2018 in Kongu Arts and

    Science College (Autonomous), Erode.

    As a part of the Science Education Programmes, the Indian

    Academy of Sciences, Bengaluru in association with Indian

    National Science Academy, New Delhi and The National

    Academy of Sciences India, Allahabad organize

    programmes for the improvement of science education in

    Universities and Colleges throughout our country.

    Short-duration Lecture Workshops form an important

    segment of the activities under the Science Academies’

    Programme, envisaged to benefit the teachers and

    students at the Undergraduate, Postgraduate and

    Research levels.

    The Academy, founded in 1934, aims at the progress of

    Science both in pure and applied branches. Its major

    activities include publication of Scientific Journals and

    Special volumes, organizing meetings of the fellows,

    discussions on important topics, recognizing scientific

    talent, improvement of Science Education and take up

    other issues of concern to the scientific community.

    The Indian National Science Academy established in

    1935 with the sole objective of promoting Science in

    India and harnessing scientific knowledge to the cause

    of humanity and National welfare. It aims at publishing

    Journals, organizing Scientific discussions and bringing

    about Proceedings and Monographs.

    The National Academy of Sciences India founded in

    1930, is the oldest Science Academy of the country. The

    main objective of the Academy is to provide a National

    Forum for the publication of research work carried out by

    Indian scientists and to provide opportunities for

    exchange of views among them.

    Indian Academy of Sciences (IASc), Bengaluru:

    Indian National Science Academy (INSA), New Delhi:

    The National Academy of Sciences India (NASI),


    The purpose of the workshop is to make an appraisal of

    the current status and innovative trends of biological

    research in India. The participants will have a great

    opportunity to expose themselves to the expertise of the

    renowned Science Academy Fellows and Eminent

    Academicians. We hope that the workshop would stimulate

    the young minds and inspire them to step on in active

    teaching and independent research in new dimensions.
