SALSI 2020 Theme: "Beyond The Textbook"

We are all bound within of thoughts, box of curriculum, box of customs, box of disciplines...isn't it? Given a chance, everyone of us will definitely wish to come out of their box atleast once..right? It is nature's law that we get attracted to the most apparently unachievable things around us. But are things really unachievable??

Science has unearthed the history of human evolution, traced back mitochondria to find the first Eve (woman) whose DNA is being passed on through generations which prevails in present human females , completed Mission Mars , cloned live animals like Dolly (sheep), found the solutions for several dreadful diseases, diagnosed  cancer from only few drops of biological fluids...and what not! All these innovations happened only when researchers, engineers, technologies, biologists , clinicians and many others marched together and took a step out of their boxes.

So,  we heartily welcome you all to join a new world of Scientific Revolution that will train your vision to look " Beyond The Texbook".

Yes!! SALSI 2020 is the first of its kind interdisciplinary platform in India which will witness the conglomeration of research, technology, science, engineering, industrial innovations and clinical applications on the same platform

Join us and enjoy this unique journey with friends and family amongst the serene beauty of the Garden City of India - Bengaluru.

Let us create, collaborate and contribute towards the betterment of life through interdisciplinary science.
