Summer Research Opportunity in India

The Khorana Scholars Program provides an opportunity for US students to spend the summer conducting scientific research in India.

The mission of the Khorana Program is to build a seamless community of scientists, industrialists, and social entrepreneurs in the US and India. Founded in 2007, the program honors Har Gobind Khorana, the Indian-born scientist whose research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison led to the Nobel Prize and ushered in the era of Biotechnology and Synthetic Biology. Khorana epitomizes the value of global exchange of ideas and partnerships. The Khorana program is focusing on three key objectives to build deep-rooted bridges to strengthen the strategic partnership between US and India.

The Khorana program makes possible the exchange of students between select Indian institutions, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and partner U.S. universities (including Michigan State University). Khorana Scholars from U.S. universities will be placed in laboratories of Indian partner institutions for research experience.
