ABOUT US

The Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science (IACS), founded on July 29, 1876 by renowned medical practitioner and philanthropist, Dr Mahendra Lal Sircar, is an autonomous Institute. It is the oldest research institute in India. The institute is devoted to the pursuit of fundamental research in the frontier areas of Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Energy, Polymer and Materials. In each field, IACS nurtures young and innovative research fellows in their doctoral programs.

Sir C. V. Raman worked at IACS during 1907 to 1933 on various topics of Physics making discovery of the celebrated effect on scattering of light in 1928, which bears his name and that brought many accolades including the Nobel Prize (Nobel Lecture by Sir C V Raman and Presentation Speech by Professor H. Pleijel, Chairman of the Nobel Committee) in 1930. The American Chemical Society designated the Raman Effect as an International Historic Chemical Landmark in 1998.

OBJECTIVE

Rules governing our living world cannot be compartmentalized in a particular discipline of science. Of late, research in biological sciences is increasingly becoming interdisciplinary. Specifically, in recent times, biological research has emerged as a highly dynamic field of investigation resulting from the combined interests of physicists, chemists, statisticians, and biologists. The physical and chemical activity which manifests itself as life is remarkably complex ranging from near equilibrium to very far from defined equilibrium and from sub-micron level to macroscopic level of collective behavior. Efforts to understand each of these aspects have resulted in newer interpretations of various novel mechanisms that not only provide a better understanding of the living systems but also may lead to designing and controlling the living world in a better way. Thus, there is an urgent need to provide a platform to facilitate interaction between the motivated and fast-growing Indian community interested in different areas of science related to biology and leading scientists across the world. With a vision of exchanging ideas for interdisciplinary aspects of biology like biological physics, mathematical biology, systems biology, bioengineering, and chemical biology for fruitful advancement of biology research, we propose to hold this meeting named IABS 2023. Such endeavors contribute to reducing intellectual barriers and encourage interdisciplinary research.
