RGCB prepares individuals who have a deep and genuine interest in
discovery science to shape the translation of biotechnology through
academic research towards applications for a knowledge economy,
business development and science of tomorrow. RGCB in 2014 will work
out of three campuses, the present one focusing on discovery science,
a second one for innovation and the third - a biotech park in Kochi
focusing on translation and partnership with industry. This is the
only institute of its kind in the country. Previous RGCB PhD's have
all done impressive work and received excellent placements (details
can be viewed here). Guided by an expert faculty, a rigorous
fundamental science course work and a host of innovative academic
programs, the RGCB PhD program is made even richer by its place in
Thiruvananthapuram, capital of "Gods own country".
RGCB is currently affiliated to the UNESCO- Regional Centre for Biotechnology, Government of India, University of Kerala, Manipal
University, Mahatma Gandhi University and Kerala University of Health
Sciences (KUHS). Registration of the selected candidates will be as
per the guidelines issued by these Universities for the award of PhD
Applications are invited twice a year and advertised in selected
national newspapers and on the RGCB website.
Please be noted that from January 2022 onwards, the laboratory fee will be collected annually (Rs.5,000/- for the first 8 semesters and Rs.10,000/- for every semester thereafter) in the month of January of every year.
