"The fellowship titled 'Regenerative Medicine and Translational Science' will also include a course in regenerative medicine that encompasses healing and recovery. Both these areas are immensely important for the country," said WBUHS vice-chancellor Amit Banerjee.

The fellowship will initially flag-off with 20 students starting April, at the School of Tropical Medicine here.

To be at par with global standards, WBUHS has joined hands with prestigious institutes across the world like Oxford University and Harvard among others.
