NSRC is a flagship event of the Academics and Career Council at IIT Kanpur that serves as a platform for the brightest minds in academia and industry to showcase their cutting-edge research and innovation ideas. It also provides opportunities for students, especially those who showcase their research and innovative work, to gain insight about their field of interest through talks and interactions with industry leaders as well as the faculty.

With this year’s convention focused on the burning topic of medical technology, it has brought together leaders and experts from the field of medicine and technology entrepreneurs spearheaded by Dr. D Nageshwara Reddy, Chairman & Chief of Gastroenterology, Asian Institute of Gastroenterology and Prof. K. Vijay Raghavan, Former Principal Scientific Adviser, Government of India, Professor, National Centre for Biological Sciences, TIFR. The lineup of speakers also include prominent names like Dr. Debojyoti Chakraborty, Principal Scientist, CSIR-Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology; Dr. Anup Singh, Associate Professor, Center for Biomedical Engineering, IIT Delhi; Prof. Amitabh Bandyopadhyay, Professor & Head, Department of Biosciences and Engineering, IIT Kanpur; Prof. Sri Sivakumar, Coordinator & Project Co-Investigator, Centre for Nanosciences, IIT Kanpur and Dr. Kiran Iyer, Scientist, Pfizer Healthcare India Pvt. Ltd.

One of the highlights of the convention also include workshops and this year’s convention is no different. ‘Design Thinking: An Agile Tool for Medical Device Prototyping’, organised by MedTech Laboratories of IIT Kanpur, will be a hands-on training on manufacturing engineering, medical devices manufacturing and rapid manufacturing. It will also feature talks by Prof. J. Ramkumar, Professor & Head of Imagineering Laboratory, Department of Mechanical Engineering, IIT Kanpur and Dr. Amandeep Singh, REO, Imagineering Laboratory, Department of Mechanical Engineering, IIT Kanpur on the subject.

Talking about NSRC ’23, Prof. Abhay Karandikar, Director IIT Kanpur, said, The pandemic has emphasized not only the need to have a healthcare system in place, but the important role that technology can play in making it more efficient. There are exciting innovations taking place in this field. This is the reason why medtech is the focus of NSRC ’23 this year. We hope that NSRC’23 will excite our young students.”
