Since 2002 we have directed seven bi-annual courses on Developmental biology at the NCBS campus in Bangalore. The course is given by a team of about eight professors, most of them from different universities and research institutes in Israel. The course extends over two weeks, and is comprised of lectures, journal clubs and intense discussions. The students (~50 MSc and PhD students each time) are from different universities and research institutes in India, and there are usually also a few students from other countries.
The course has continuously been a truly inspiring experience for both speakers and students.
