The International Student Research Forum (ISRF) was inaugurated in 2005 and has continued annually for the past years. The Forum aims to attract the world’s brightest, upcoming scientists and provides an opportunity to showcase world-class education and research. It offers a unique opportunity for students to develop professional relationships with fellow research scientists that may ultimately lead to collaboration and ultimately, considerable scientific advances.
