As part of its Science Outreach Programme, in 2006 the Centre initiated a new programme in biology for undergraduate students from other Institutions. Selected students are exposed to the concepts and methodologies driving integrative research in biology today, through a combination of lectures, laboratory projects and research. The programme will be conducted during the summer vacation for a period of 6 to 8 weeks. Students selected are expected to work at the Centre for three consecutive summers and successful candidates will receive Diploma in Biology from the Centre.
