Committments and Core values

Biotechnology will soon influence our lives in a number of ways including the way food is produced and processed, human illness is treated and the way fuel is produced. Biotechnology is therefore truly a "transformative technology" comparable to some of history's greatest events of creation including the invention of writing, the steam engine and electricity. Transformative technologies will always throw up challenges in governance and will need innovative thinking to frame questions and go about finding practical solutions. Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology (RGCB) is a now a national treasure. From health biotechnology to genetic engineering of spices to nano-platforms for disease diagnosis, this institute will soon be base to some of India's best research. The institute is proud of the work its scientists do, striving to making knowledge economy stronger and our lives healthier by making advances that only a generation ago would have seemed almost impossible.
