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.
