Welcome to the NCMR !


Heartiest Congratulations to Dr. Avinash Sharma for getting a recommendation for his project towards the 'Early career fellowship' from Wellcome Trust DBT India Alliance







Policy for the supply of cultures for high throughput screening



An important milestone in the history of NCMR. Dr. Avinash Sharma has been awarded prestigious Welcome Trust DBT India Alliance Early Career Fellowship. He will use techniques like iChip to isolate "uncultured" bacteria and look for novel bioactive molecules in them. He will be trained in the laboratory of Prof. Kim Lewis who reported Teixobactin by the use of iChip. He will thus bring this technology to India for further exploration of "uncultured" microbial diversity in the country.
