2-Day Offline Biosciences & Biotech Training Workshop for High School Students (Kolkata)

SHRM Biotech and Stoodt have been conducting online summer programs on biotech & biosciences since summer last year. However, being a very practical-oriented subject field, the Biotechnology & Biomedical Sciences domain demands significant hands-on training. Hence, we are launching a 2-day offline Biotech Training Workshop for high school students in May 2021. This is a one-time opportunity for students (Grade 9 onwards) to have a glance at the most sophisticated instruments and hands-on lab skills required in the Biotechnology field.

Biotech Industry and Its Future

Now coming to the Biotechnology field and its prospects in the near future, it makes more sense to provide factual evidence. First of all, India is among the top 12 destinations for biotechnology worldwide. The industry comprises >2,700 biotech start-ups and >2,500 biotech companies in the country. India has 665 FDA-approved plants the US; 44% of the global abbreviated new drug applications (ANDA).

The Indian biotechnology industry amounted to US$ 63 billion in 2019 and is forecast to reach US$ 102 billion by 2025, with a CAGR of 10.9%. By 2025, the contribution of the Indian biotechnology industry in the global biotechnology market is expected to grow to 19% from 3% in 2017. Biopharmaceutical is the largest segment that contributed ~58% to the Indian biotechnology market in 2019, followed by bio-agriculture, which accounted for 19%, and bio-services, which accounted for 15% in 2019.

Given the long history of diseases in India, the country has accumulated years of experience and scientific knowledge to prevent and treat them. India is working to boost the biotechnology sector under the flagship programmes such as ‘Make in India’ and ‘Start-up India’. Increase in the number of biotech incubators will boost research and promote growth of start-ups; this is critical for the success of the Indian biotech industry.

Program Content of the Biotech Training Workshop

Students will get a chance to learn about all the processes (of the industry as well as research) that are done by applying all the instruments that are present in the laboratory.
