With knowledge becoming the key driver of society and economy, life sciences and biotechnology are making enormous headway. There is a high-speed growth in the life sciences sector and it is providing new avenues in healthcare, agriculture, food processing and environmental protection. New disciplines such as genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics and novel applications like gene testing and regeneration of human organs or tissues has come into existence.
Bio Sciences are set to impact the society and the global economy in a marked way and India is at the forefront of this pursuit. With a growing number of serious players in the industry and with India’s famed intellectual property, these are exciting times for the biotech industry in the country.
Our model is to blend expertise in biosciences with the principles and practices of business management and create skilled human resource for future leadership positions in biotechnology, pharmaceutical, health care and food processing industries.
A good science educational must be built on a research model. Our thrust is on investing and organizing to provide greater support to our researchers, especially those in the early stages of their careers. Biotech-related research proposals have already been submitted for funding from external sources.
We at SILB are committed to develop to develop the institute into an internationally recognized center of research and education in life and management sciences and to provide the students with an opportunity to learn and interact with the top most experts.
I am glad to say that SILB has produced 18 Gold Medalists and more than 150 merit positiona in Himachal Pradesh University since its inception.
It is my pleasure to invite you to join and grow with SILB for a prosperous tomorrow.
