Biochemistry


The department of biochemistry is a trending research- meticulous part of faculty of biology. Since it was established in the year 1999, the department has developed in various reputations for excellence in teaching and also in academic enhancement. Currently, the department has five full time academic staff members and forty two undergraduate students are engaged in full time studies. Department is equipped with two established laboratories located in grand division for various practical assessment. The department offers undergraduate curriculum with practical aided knowledge to augment the students in wide exposure of modern biochemical techniques. The faculty of the department also attends many faculty enrichment programs which help them to handle constantly changing technological trends. We provide a plethora of course focusing on different special aspects of biochemistry. Our graduates hold good positions throughout in various research laboratories, hospital laboratories, publication editors, medical coders, pharmaceutical companies and also as academic faculties.
