NCBS has produced 182 PhD holders in the life sciences and 65 MSc degree holders in Wildlife Sciences and Conservation over the past 25 years. We are very proud that more than 20 NCBS alumni are running their own research laboratories in India and abroad and are investigating a range of exciting questions in life sciences. While several of our alumni are in academia, there are others who are now working in science-related areas such as research funding, science communication and intellectual property protection. Several Wildlife Sciences and Conservation alumni have gone on to higher studies and taken up influential roles with NGOs and governmental policy-making bodies. Two past students have joined the Indian Forest Service and are making significant contributions there.
