About BioQuest

BioQuest is an annual event of the School of Life Sciences (University of Hyderabad) to showcase the infrastructure, and the ongoing teaching and research programs of the School of Life Sciences. This also provides an opportunity for the young scientists and faculty to interact with the industry partners and explore collaborations.

Program of the BioQuest is aptly tuned for achieving this aim. During the concise and comprehensive two-day program, there will be lectures delivered by the selected students and faculty of each department, and the scientists working on the emerging fields of science in the life-science industry. In addition, participants will have the chance for discussion not only during poster sessions and presentations but also during the social activities in the evening.

We look forward to meeting you at the vibrant and dynamic School of Life Sciences at University of Hyderabad. Your support and sponsorship for the program would be highly commendable.
