The IISERs were established by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, to bridge this dichotomy. IISER-TVM was founded in 2008. The institute aims to provide high-quality education in modern science, integrating it with outstanding research at the undergraduate level itself, and to develop a spirit of inquiry cutting across disciplines. IISER-TVM is an autonomous institution offering a five-year BS-MS program in addition to iPh.D and Ph.D. programs in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, and inter-disciplinary areas.
