In order to facilitate high quality research and disseminate skills, we are planning for the following training programs in this year. Please follow this page for more updates

Mentorship in Publishing a paper

“Publish or perish” is a well known quote in academic chatter. Many of us aspire to publish our interesting findings but there may be a lot of barriers such as lack of motivation, time and inadequate skills. This mentorship program aims to break these barriers and  facilitate budding researchers to come out with a research article. We at BBH will handhold you, inspire you, motivate you and walk with you through this journey.
