Biological Sciences


Projects are sought towards addressing India-centric problems in the broad areas of (1) Nutrition and health, (2) Biodiversity, (3) Infectious diseases,(4) Human genetics and non-communicable diseases. The projects could address specific problems in any of these areas, or subdisciplines within these areas, through either an integrated approach or through approaches tackling a specific aspect of the problem. Potential approaches could include those involving either genetics, biochemistry, genomics, metabolomic, chemico-biological, biophysical or structural studies, ecological or evolutionary approaches, theoretical modelling, or engineering or systems-level approaches in organisms that are relevant for the above areas.

Priority Areas

  • Nutrition and health.
  • Biodiversity.
  • Infectious diseases.
  • Human genetics and non-communicable diseases.
  • Crop protection and value addition
