Director (I/C):  Dr. M Prithviraj    Email:


MCNS is a Centre of Excellence with a mandate to carry out high-quality research as well as produce globally competent researchers in fundamental sciences.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Over the last few months, as the Director of the Centre, I had the opportunity to closely interact with the Faculty and researchers and I am truly impressed by their passion for learning, discovery, and problem-solving; as well as their dedication to keeping the vibrancy of research in the centre.                                                                                                                                  As the Director, I will strive to create an environment with sufficient academic freedom to promote creativity, flexibility and original thought and help transform the Centre to achieve its full potential as a vibrant and diverse scientific and educational hub that is internationally renowned for excellence.
