The Centre for Cellular and Molecular Platforms (C-CAMP) which is an initiative of Department of Biotechnology (DBT, Govt. of India) and a member of the Bangalore Life Science Cluster was recently selected for "Scale-up Support" under the NITI AYOG's Atal Innovation Mission.
The scheme is aimed at transforming established incubation centres to world-class standards. The C-CAMP bio-incubator has in the last few years emerged as a thriving hub for innovation and a vibrant ecosystem, where it has supported over 70 innovative biotech-life science start-ups through seed funding, bio-incubation and mentorship.
Dr. Taslimarif Saiyed, Director and COO, C-CAMP said, "There is a need to have careful nurturing of Healthcare/Life Science innovators/start-ups and C-CAMP is delighted at this recognition and support from NITI Aayog AIM. C-CAMP is ideally placed in Bangalore LifeScience Cluster, along with NCBS and inStem, integration into very strong academic scientific environment. This support will enable C-CAMP's BioIncubator to scale-up its efforts toward building a world-class innovation incubation hub for healthcare/lifescience start-ups"
