The year ended on a wonderful note. Deeply grateful to SMBE for awarding Shraddha Karve and myself a generous grant, leading to the SMBE regional meeting in India at Dehradun this year! Titled ‘Molecular mechanisms in evolution’, we truly enjoyed organizing it and hope the attendees felt the same way. The serene surroundings and great science came together to make for a really fun meeting with a great bunch of people.

Ashoka University, particularly student volunteers, the biology department manager Ajay, the grant management, finance and media teams provided indispensable background support. We look forward to much more engagement within the Indian scientific community, connecting the worlds of evolution with molecular genetics and biochemistry!
