Call for Proposal for Young Investigators (RGYI Scheme)

The Department of Biotechnology is attempting to reduce the age at which scientists get their first Principal Investigator grant and expand opportunities for young scientists. We invite proposals in any branch of biotechnology related to medical, agriculture, vetinerary, environment, marine, industrial or to bioresources.  DBT will provide rapid review and approval for suitable proposals and early funding.  Post Doctoral students can be Co-PI or Co-Investigator together with young faculty/ scientists holding permanent positions.  It will be our endeavour to release funds within eight weeks of the last date of submission of the proposal. Budget may be appropriate to the project goals and activities.

The interested scientists may submit 10 copies of their proposals in the format on or before 30th June, 2009 to Dr.T.S.Rao, Adviser, Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science and Technology, Block–2 (6th-8th Floor), CGO Complex, Lodi Road, New Delhi – 110003 Tel.:011-24364065, Fax: 011-24362884 E-mail:
