M.Phil Biochemistry

Biochemistry is the field of science which has revolutionized the field of life sciences and medicine. Biochemistry has great importance in present time as it deals with the study of biochemical processes taking place in living organisms, structure of cellular components and their biomedical importance, enzymes, hormones, diseases and drugs.

The program develops in depth theoretical and practical knowledge of advance topics of Biochemistry and its allied areas. The students will be able to critically analyze the case studies / scenarios and apply the biochemistry knowledge in solving problems.

Our vision is to empower women to promote healthy and enlightened community through the use of knowledge gained from the degree program.

We aim to produce knowledgeable, research oriented and highly trained biochemists who can implement scientific principles to the continuous improvement of academics and research in the fields of health, agriculture, industry, environment, and others.
