Short-Term Training at NIBMG

Students may undergo short term training at NIBMG under one of the following two programmes.

Short-term Internship Program of NIBMG:  Every year, NIBMG faculty members supervise the internship/project training of some students enrolled in various under-graduate and post-graduate degree courses. These projects are typically 2-3 months during the summer months or 5-6 months during the winter/spring semester. Occasionally, other internships for longer durations are also considered. No Stipend/TA/DA is provided to the trainees under this program. For the application procedure and related questions visit the link below.

Summer Research Fellowship Programme (SRFP) of the Science Academies: NIBMG participates in the Summer Research Fellowship Programme jointly sponsored by the three Science Academies in India, and accepts a small number of trainees who are selected and referred to us by the Coordinator of the Programme.  NIBMG does not provide any stipend/TA/DA to the trainese beyond the fellowship, TA etc. that they receive from the SRFP.

Prospective summer trainees are encouraged to directly apply to the Programme through the websites of the academies. Research activities of NIBMG faculty members are described on the NIBMG web site ( For more information visit the following link.

Other Programmes

Training will be imparted by organizing, in partnership with national and international institutions,

Workshops and Schools on various aspects of biomedical genomics, including genetic counselling, methodology of clinical trials, etc.

Gifted Student Programmes: B.Sc. students who demonstrate a high level of creativity, intellect, motivation and a capacity to excel in subject areas relevant to the field of biomedical genomics will be given the opportunity to participate in the Gifted Student programme. Students selected in this programme will be given special courses in research methodology, provided exposure to research areas and will also be encouraged to carry out short-term wet-laboratory based or computational-laboratory based projects.

Continuing Education Programmes in relevant topics of biomedical genomics, to be held on a regular basis in collaboration with hospitals, medical colleges, basic science institutions (including universities) and the industry.

Industry Training Programme: NIBMG will undertake these programmes to facilitate increasing of affinity between the academia and the industry-- including service providers in the areas of molecular diagnostics, clinical trials, etc. -- in the field of biomedical genomics, which is crucial to the success of translational research. These programmes will have two arms: (a) suitable personnel from the relevant industries will be trained in NIBMG, and (b) faculty members of NIBMG will conduct training programmes jointly with members of the industry, preferably in industrial laboratories, on topics of mutual interest.
