Sunil is a Post Graduate from Department of Biochemical Engineering and Biotechnology, IIT Delhi, currently working as a Researcher in BioScience Wing of a top-notch MNC. His journey towards IITs started in year 2010, when he first cleared GATE BT with over 99.6 percentile as a 3rd year student of B.Tech Biotechnology from LPU (Punjab). By the time he completed his B.Tech, he had already cleared GATE BT (2010 and 2011), DBT JRF (2011), CSIR UGC NET(LS) and IISc enterance exam. Though he got admission offer from IIT Bombay as well, he decided to enroll for MS (Research) at IIT Delhi in 2011. Having suffered a lot during his B.Tech days owing to lack of career guidance, he always tried to share his experience through various blogs and forums. In 2013, through some fortunate set of events, we happened to meet Sunil. We discussed our plan to launch a portal for career guidance of Biotech Students with him. He humbly accepted to be a part of this initiative as an advisor, with a hope that BiotechStudents.com might shape the careers of as many Biotech Students as possible.
Pranjul is a research scholar, pursuing Ph.D in Systems Biology from National University of Singapore. With dual GATE BT qualification in his crown of achievements (GATE BT 2011 and 2012), and being a PhD scholar (enrolled in 2012) at the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (World QS Rank 7) National University of Singapore, we feel lucky to have him as an advisor for BiotechStudents.com. We sincerely hope that his vast experience in pursuing best in class internships (IIT Kanpur), cracking post GATE interviews (IIT Madras) and making it to National University of Singapore right after B.Tech in Biotech for a direct PhD will help a lot of Biotech Students aspiring for a bright career
