Scope:Polymer Science and Technology is an interdisciplinary area that  establishes a coherent bonding between chemists, physicists, materials scientists, and chemical, electronics, and polymer engineers. Recently biology enters as an important support system in evelopment of polymers for advanced applications in health and biomedical sciences. Post-pandemic era is going to bring us a new-normal, however, at the same time it may open up an endless opportunity to grow in local manufacturing, start-up ecosystem, innovative design and fabrication of materials in general, and polymer in particular.

Keeping in view the above, JIS Institute of Advanced Studies and Research has started the Centre for Interdisciplinary Sciences(CIS) which offers
