In his exclusive interview with BioSpectrum's Raj Gunashekar, he shares that incubation centres like IBAB's Life Sciences Incubation Centre can position themselves as ideal nucleation hubs for lifesciences innovation.

According to Dr Kumar, BIRAC's schemes like BIG and BISS have revived the biotech entrepreneurial scene in India.

He observes that low-risk appetite and lack of role models, and adverse social milieu are major contributing factors among Indian students who hesitate entering the unlimited world of entrepreneurship.
