This engagement with TIGS is a wonderful opportunity for NCBS researchers to engage with questions that concern both genetics and society, and at the same time broadening the collaborative footprint of TIGS at the Bangalore Life Science Cluster.” 

Rakesh Mishra, Director, TIGS. “Joining hands with NCBS, Tata Institute of Genetics and Society (TIGS) brings top quality science closer to addressing societal problems in the domain of rare genetic diseases, infectious diseases and nutrition, using cutting edge science and technology.”
