Deparment of Biochemisntry
The department of Biochemistry was established in the year 1993 with Microbiology, Biochemistry and chemistry and in the year 1995 a new combination with Biotechnology, Biochemistry and Chemistry. Since then the department has developed year by year in infrastructure as well as the combinations in life sciences and Department has introduced the PG course in Biochemistry in the year 2006. Department has highly qualified faculty members, with Ph.D and M.Phil from reputed Universities and Institutes.
The department has well established infra structure and equipped laboratories to conduct experiments in the field of Molecular Biology, Immunology, Enzymology, Biophysical techniques and Instrumentation Technology. The students are motivated to take up the projects in various aspects of Applied Biochemistry like Clinical Biochemistry, Molecular biology and Techniques like PCR, HPLC e.t.c.
The UG course students after their 3 year course are well equipped with sound theoretical and practical knowledge in Biochemistry. They become familiar with the Diagnostic procedures in clinical Medicine, Qualitative and quantitative analysis of biomolecules, handling of sophisticated instruments used in biochemistry laboratory.
Post graduate students of Biochemistry gain vast knowledge in specialized branches like Molecular Biology, Bioinformatics, Immunology, Enzymology, Endocrinology, Clinical Biochemistry and Recombinant DNA technology as well as practical knowledge in experiments related to above aspects of Biochemistry. The PG students undertake a field projects in final semester in various aspects of Biochemistry to develop research aptitude, in addition to the curriculum.
During their course of study, students of both UG and PG students besides rigorous training in practical aspects of Biochemistry, also visit reputed institutions like IICT, CCMB, CDFD, NIN to gain knowledge on ongoing research projects and advances in Molecular biology and Biochemistry. Guest lectures by eminent scientists and scholars are arranged periodically on recent advances in the field of Biochemistry and allied sciences.
Both UG and PG students are made proficient in all the aspects, like communication skills in developing a research perspective among the students and are well equipped in faring well in placements activities by reputed companies. By the end of their course the students are moulded into good students to face the challenges of life and as ideal citizens who work for the betterment of science and society.
