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.
