Kindly find enclosed herewith a copy of flyer for your ready reference and further action. Registration is on a first- come-first-serve-basis as we have limited seats. If you know any of your colleagues/friends who might be interested, please forward the workshop flyer to them. I request the research supervisors to encourage their research students to participate and take the advantage of this hand-on training. Furthermore, I humbly request you to display enclosed flyer on your notice board of your organisation.

For new aspirants, it would be a benefit to acquire knowledge and skills on drug discovery and development research.

If you have any further queries, please don't hesitate to contact me
