DBT-inStem along with other members of Bangalore Life Science Cluster (BLiSC) hosted a photography competition ‘Environment in Focus’, to commemorate World Earth Day, which is celebrated every year on June 05.
The event drew a large crowd of students and faculty from the Bangalore Life Science Cluster (BLiSC) campus. The theme of the photography competition was ‘Con(serving) Environment’ and ‘Shades of Life’. For this contest, we received around 100 entries.
