Applications Open-Stanford India Biodesign 2012 Internship

A message to all members of India Biodesign


We are pleased to announce that the application process is open for the 2012 Stanford-India Biodesign (SIB) Fellowship. The goal of this programme, launched in 2007, is to train the next generation of biomedical technology innovators in India. This highly competitive programme is directed to Indian citizens who have an interest in the invention and early-stage development of new biomedical technologies.

The SIB Fellowship Programme is centred at Stanford and in New Delhi and administered as a collaboration between Stanford University, the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in partnership with the Indo-US Science & Technology Forum (IUSSTF).


I have come across a common inquiry in my blog that

  • Where to do biomedical training?
  • How to apply for biomedical training?
  • Which institutes offer training to biomedical students in country?
  • Is this training compulsory?
  • Why should one do training?
  • What is taught in training?

Taking it in reverse order first of all i would like to highlight

  • What happens in training?

It is a learning process that involves the acquisition of knowledge, sharpening of skills, concepts, rules, or changing of attitudes and behaviours to enhance the performance of students.
