Women Students and research fellows visit K.L. Mehta Dayanand college - Science Setu visit
As the scientific community celebrated National Science Day, a group of women students and research fellows from THSTI visited K.L. Mehta Dayanand College for Women in Faridabad. Dr. Harleen Khurana (RA with Dr. Ramandeep Singh), Ms. Hina Lateef Nizami (PhD student with Dr. Sanjay Banerjee), Ms. Ojasvi Mehta (SRF with Dr. Bhabatosh Das), Ms. Anvita Chaudhary (SRF with Dr. Ajay Kumar) and Ms. Neha Yadav (JRF with Dr. Pallavi Kshetrapal) formed the group. Dr. Pallavi Kshetrapal, who is a member of THSTI's Science Setu committee was also a part of the group and began the talks by introducing our maternal and child health program. The students and fellows eloquently communicated their work to a crowd of about 300 undergraduate students from different streams of biological sciences. The talks were followed by a short session wherein the college students posed questions regarding higher studies in science and alternative careers in science. This is the first girls-teaching-girls program under science setu and we wish to have more of such programs in future celebrating women in science.
