Rs.100-crore Central grant for RGCB

Abstract:
RGCB Director Radhakrishna Pillai told The Hindu that the grant was a recognition to the institution's efforts on the biotechnology front. The fund will be used to expand its research activities and these include the setting up of specialty centres for nanosciences and engineering, cancer research, and infectious diseases biology and spices improvement through genetic engineering. There will also be an incubation facility for start-up biotech industries. "The sanctioning of this large a grant for the centre has enormous implications for Kerala as we now plan to do research on cancer and on infectious diseases such as chikungunya," he said.

The RGCB has requested the Kerala government to provide 50 acres of land for setting up a second campus. It has identified two sites: one at Vithura, close to the land allocated to the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (ISER) and another one at the cashew plantations near the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) complex at Valiamala.
