Meet our Alumni

I joined IFS just after leaving my university. It was a fantastic opportunity to understand the career pathway in Science. IFS gave me opportunity to understand the depth of world class science.  I had fantastic mentors to inspire me to pursue career in science. I made great friends whom I still keep in touch. I am happy to share my knowledge with the current research assistants.
