NGS warmly congratulates our 9th batch of 75 graduates who are conferred their PhD degrees at the Commencement Ceremony on 7th July 2016 at 3 pm at the University Cultural Centre.
Congratulations my fellow graduates, we came, we saw and we conquered !
Albert Einstein once said, “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious .”
Our family . If we liken ourselves to a tree, they form our roots, nourishing us with the psychological support that enabled us to brave the challenges of laboratory life.
Our mentors . They gave us light and pointed us in the right direction. … (T)he true value of Science lies not in knowledge discovery, but in knowledge transfer. Mentoring, teaching and passing the skills and knowledge forward, that is what makes research meaningful. … To quote Aristotle, “Those who know, do. Those that understand, teach.”
Our colleagues . … We are passionately curious, we seek answers, and when we get stuck, we help each other ... (O)ur colleagues kept us sane.
