ABOUT

The TNQ Distinguished Lectures in the Life Sciences were set up in 2008 as the Cell Press-TNQ India Distinguished Lectureship Series

This lecture series was conceived of and is sponsored by TNQ Technologies. Through TNQ’s relationship with its customers—leading scholarly societies and publishers—this annual event is aimed at bringing internationally renowned scientists face to face with the Indian scientific community—students, researchers, and faculty members.

The objective of the lecture series is to showcase current and path-breaking research in the life sciences and facilitate interaction between the speakers and the Indian scientific community. Over the years, these lectures have been presented across the major cities of India—Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai, and New Delhi.
