  • The Department of Biochemistry was newly started at the Shankaraghatta main campus during the academic year 2005-06 to fulfill the demand and needs of student community. We offer M.Sc., M. Phil and Ph.D courses in biochemistry. The course content is designed to cover all aspects of Biochemistry and practical orientation for biochemical methods. The exhaustive training in biochemical methods and sound theoretical background is intended to make the student an appropriate candidate to not only take up either teaching or pursuing doctoral research but also competent enough to work in pharmaceutical R&D and diagnostic labs, agricultural research intuitions, and various medical and allied institutions and industries. The department has experienced and dedicated faculty members who are actively involved in various research projects. The department also invites accomplished scientists from various prestigious institutions to deliver special lectures in order to encourage and motivate the students to take up research programme. The students who have successfully completed the course have been working in various capacities in research institutions, biotech industries and universities.
    The vision and mission: The vision of the Department with an extensive network of partnerships is to become a leader and center of excellence in education, research, development, and training in basic and applied biochemistry.
    Our mission is commitment to programs which will provide each student and researcher a holistic, value based education in a trusting and caring environment. We strive to equip its graduates to keep pace with the changes in technologies and to meet the new challenges. We are committed to provide motivation and excellence in learning leading to independent and highly competent individuals who are responsive to contribute effectively globally.
