Report on Guest Lecture by Foreign Faculty organized by Biotechnology Association

The Biotechnology Association of Christ University had organized a guest lecture by an eminent scientist from University College, Cork, Ireland on 12.11.2014 in Room No.911 in the Central Block of Christ University Main Campus. Prof. Justin V McCarthy, Director of Biotechnology, University of Cork (UCC) gave a wonderful talk on the topic “Altering the genetic blueprint: Pharming for Farmaceuticals”.   

He also gave the students an insight into the various opportunities for higher studies at UCC campus.

 
 
There was meeting of the faculty of Biotechnology (Dr Suma S, Dr Biljo V Joseph and Ms Vasantha V L) and Deans of Science (Dr Nanjegowda N M and Dr Louis George) with Prof. Justin V McCarthy and Prof Kellie Dean from University of Cork, Ireland regarding syllabus and opportunities for higher studies. 

The discussion centred around possibilities of student and faculty exchange for research purposes between UCC and Christ University. Overall it was a very enriching experience.
