Regards,
Bharat.

Hi Bharat,

Dr. Gomes and Dr. Jayaram are the people to impress. Being inclined towards Biological Sciences, Kusuma School's interviews test you on the respective skills only (like Biochemistry, GPCRs, Understanding of Cancer, Protein Modeling, Drug delivery, Pharmacokinetics, kinds of topics).

I hope you are getting my message: 'brush up your biological sciences and elementary sciences'. Special focus should be on the research profile of the professor(s) you wish to work under (and others too, to be on the safe side). Find out some interesting work proposal too (as a contingency plan).

Try not to reflect yourself over-confident (conduct calmly, you shall make it through).

Some points to consider:
1) Your career profile post MS® from Kusuma would be more inclined towards core-research than industrial jobs.
2) Upto 3 years are expected for completion of MS® from Kusuma, with chances of extension (unless you are pro-active throughout your degree).
3) Placement prospects aren't as bright as compared to DBEB.
4) You'll get the tag of IITD which would help you a lot in future.
5) If you'll stay pro-active in co-curricular, academic and placement activities, you need not worry about your career.

If you have any other query, do let me know.

Best wishes

Thank you so much sir. Your guidance helps me a lot as always. I have some questions....
>Is the course duration of MS®3 years not 2?
>You have already mentioned some important topics. But kindly tell some more topics/subjects that i must focus for the interview.

Hello Bharat,

MS(Research) courses can take 3 years (max time set for MS completion). Minimum is indeed 2 years, but considering the core-research associated with MS courses (with a typical PhD framework: Internal presentations every 6 months, an internal synopsis, thesis submission to the Dean of Students, external thesis defence after 2-3 months of thesis submission), most of the people take more than 2 years (often complete 3 years) to do MS(Research).

Focus on elementary concepts of diseases (which are being worked upon at KSBS). Brush up your concepts about Viruses and their applications as well. You may keep yourself prepared for a subject of your interest as well (I'm not aware of the procedure at KSBS as of now, have asked a PhD fellow at IITD to get some info. The opinions for subjects are thus out of my own wisdom/understanding).

Hope it helps

Best wishes
