Centre’s gates thrown open to public to mark its foundation day

A total of 2,004 students, along with their teachers and parents, held an interface with scientists and their research findings at the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) here on Thursday. The CCMB, one of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research institutes, had opened its gates to the public as part of CSIR’s foundation day celebrations.

As many as 27 schools had sent their students to the CCMB on Thursday, while College students were also seen on the premises. The participants were guided through various research divisions of the institutes by a team of scientists. Students were shown research and development activities of the institute.
