Young Scholars Program – Individual Research Project

There will be no YSP IRP in 2020 due to COVID-19.

I have been involved with Young Scholars Program (YSP) from Department of Biological Science since 2007 and sponsored Individual Research Projects (IRP) each year (except for 2012, 2017, and 2019). The projects I sponsor are the ones that can be completed in six weeks (the duration of the program) and sometimes continuation of or analysis of a different aspect of a project from previous year. My projects are prepared by keeping in mind the following points:

  • Duration of the program: 5+1 weeks (with final week for preparation and presentation)
  • Number of days for experiments and analysis: 10+2 work-days (with final 2 days for presentation preparations)
  • Start and end a complete project (as opposed to participating in an on-going project)
  • Flexible enough so that it can be expanded to add more experiments and/or data
  • Provide experiences in the wet-lab (biochemistry), dry-lab (crystallography), and computational skills (data processing)


MY YSP Alumni

I have been lucky enough to get very good students to work with me for their Individual Research Projects. Shown below is a link to my YSP Alumni page where you will find out information about those who did Individual Research Projects (IRPs) with me. It gives some idea about what they did after leaving YSP and what they are currently doing. Thanks alumni for sharing this information. Please keep in touch!
