It’s that time of the year again. Students of IIT Madras will soon host Biofest, the annual technical festival of the Department of Biotechnology.
The sixth edition, which will be held from March 3-5 will aim at providing exposure to the diverse fields of biotechnology, through a plethora of events. “Its mission is to promote research and innovation in various fields of bioengineering and biosciences,” says Kapalesh, one of the organisers.
Biofest also provides an ideal platform for industry-academia and industry-student nexus and will cater to students of all levels of education. Events are planned to make research more interesting, such as Industrial Development Problem, where industrial problems are posed and students are asked to come up with solutions, Bio-Biz, paper and poster presentation, exhibitions, quiz and conferences. It will also include a series of lectures by eminent scientists.
