I am always thankful to my colleagues and Aravind sir, for their constant support in my academic and personal life. I always love to go back to the lab and interact with the lab members. Thank you, sir, for providing all the facilities and for being a part of my life.

During my one year of research in the lab while working on my Master's thesis, I had a great learning experience from the majority of the lab members as well as my Guide. Along with laboratory skills, I have developed the attributes of detail-oriented problem-solving ability and critical thinking to effectively understand and present facts. The experience helped me have a better grasp of the nano-world and prepare to face new difficulties and applications in this subject in the future.

It was my first expirence working in a research based environment. As a first year undergrad intership, Dr. Aravind, Dr. Sushma, Dr. Tejashwini and other lab members back then served as a source of inspiration for me.

Working in P-NAS lab as a PhD scholar was a life changing opportunity for me. I had a wonderful experience working alongside my colleagues in the lab and having thought provoking discussions during the lab meetings which paved the path for research. Lastly, having Aravind Sir as a mentor is nothing less than a blessing. I have learned a lot under his guidance and whatever I have been able to achieve is all because of him. All in all my experience in P-NAS lab was really a memorable one.

I have been so fortunate to be able to work in P-NAS lab, under the guidance of Dr. Aravind Kumar Rengan. As a starter in the research field, the actual experience of research at P-NAS lab gave me very important insight into the rigor of research process, the quantitative/qualitative dichotomy and taught me how important organization is in the world of research. It made me concede that research and academia is indeed a discipline. I got to learn and experience different aspects of science during my time at P-NAS. I am very thankful to Dr. Aravind Kumar Rengan for the opportunity he gave me. And to all my lab mates, you guys are the driving force in our laboratory. They have taught me a lot and I'll never forget the fun times we had. It's been my great pleasure to work with all of them, and I wish the best in their professional and personal lifes.

Great place to work with a diverse group of researchers. The lab had ample resources to conduct high-quality research. I was fortunate to be the first Ph.D. graduate from the lab. It was a good experience to work with a brilliant clinician researcher guide. He helped me understand how to conduct high-impact translational research and mentored me to tackle things.
