This academic event is tailored keeping in mind the needs of the post graduate students.

The program will be held both on site as well as online. Aspiring students will get a chance to gain both theoretical knowledge and invaluable hands-on experience in the fascinating realm of clinical biochemistry. The students will also get an opportunity to present their work and get valuable feedback from faculty across the country. The virtual platform for the guest lectures will provide greater accessibility and flexibility to enrich the student’s knowledge in a most convenient way.

We welcome all postgraduate students, junior and senior residents to register and benefit from this event.
