BioCamp certainly helps both,” said Jawed Zia, Country President, Novartis Group of Companies in India.
BioCamp is a pioneering seminar organized by Novartis that brings talented students from diverse faculties and different universities closer to the pharmaceutical industry. The program is open to postgraduate students and young researchers in natural sciences, medicine, biotechnology, bio-informatics, pharmacy, business administration or law (specialization in Intellectual Property Rights) interested in pursuing a career in the pharmaceutical/biotechnology industry. Interested students should visit www.novartis.in or email [email protected] for more information.
Selected students will have the opportunity to learn from and network with leaders in the pharmaceutical industry as well as hone their team building skills.
