Vignesh S. Kotian got selected for Novartis BioCamp ” the Future of Medicine”

This was the 10th edition of Novartis Biocamp “The Future of Medicine”, A Biotechnology Leadership Camp, held at Novartis Knowledge City, Hitec City, Hyderabad from 23rd Sept-26th Sept 2018. I was one amongst 50 fortunate students who got selected across India from various disciplines through a rigorous selection process. BioCamp 2018 was a 4 days’ event which involved some open interactive sessions with leaders of Novartis, some great learning experiences along with some fun activities. Many prominent figures of Novartis from India and outside like Mr.Milan Paleja ,Country President , Novartis India; Dr.Julius Vaz, Global Program Head, Global Health DU, Novartis India; Dr.Mahesh Iyer, Co-founder, Sineflex Solutions, Dr.Mayur Bhargava, BusinessHead, Neuroscience &Established Medicines, Novartis India ; Dr.Ashwini Mathur ,Head Data Sciences, Novartis Ireland; Anu Acharya, CEO, Mapmygenome and many more shared their tremendous experiences and advices on how this ever-growing industry impact life of patients and what drives them to work rigorously. The take-home message for me was to understand and realize the value of teamwork, productive output and respecting everyone’s opinion on the table when we are doing interdisciplinary work for the welfare of the patients. Truly, it was an enthralling experience for me where I made new friends for life and I thank Novartis India as well as NIPER-A for this opportunity.
