The objective of this program is to provide the training in the emerging field of biotechnology and molecular medicine and prepare the human resources that will be needed to carry out research and development work, for experiments on animal models of human diseases, for supporting the medical staff in generating patient specific gene/protein expression profiling for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. This unique program will provide the students an opportunity to work in specialized labs in government as well as private institutes and industries, in clinical research and trials after successfully completing the program. This program will expose the students to basic and applied aspects of molecular basis of human diseases, animal modeling of human diseases, and the allied subjects like molecular biology and developmental biology and bring them to a level of understanding whereby they realize the importance of learning to a scientific application. To attain this goal, we will use a combined approach involving lectures, journal club discussions, oral presentations and exposure to research work in the laboratory.
