8th Annual Session and Symposium on Novel Approaches for Bio-Medical Research November 21 - 23, 2008
The idea of establishing a forum for scientists, which would help them in publishing their researches and bring them together to discuss and find scientific solutions to the problems of the country, was mooted by Prof. Meghnad Saha, a great scientist, patriot and then Professor of Physics at Allahabad University in 1929. Thus, the National Academy of Sciences, India was founded in the year 1930 at Allahabad.
