Simons Lectures and Colloquia

We are happy to announce the Simons Colloquium Series. The idea behind this series is to get the very best academicians, whose work has some (or can conceivably have some) intersection with biology in its broadest sense. These lectures are meant to appeal to the larger community of scientists situated in Bangalore. We hope that this will provide a lively intellectual platform to seed new creative ideas and cross-disciplinary engagements.
