DEPARTMENT OF BIOCHEMISTRY
History of the Department
 
                  The Department of Biochemistry was started on 1.9.1997. The department has qualified Professor & H.O.D, Associate Professor, Assistant Professors and Tutors as per MCI norms.  Biochemist is looking after DMLT classes. Grade-I technician is incharge of students lab. We have a molecular biology lab and immunology lab apart from students lab in the department. We are expected to have an intake of 3 PG students from the next academic year and we are awaiting the MCI inspection for that. All other formalities regarding this aspect were completed. We have 24 hrs Biochemistry lab in MGMGH with Grade-I technician and  Grade-II technicians under the control of the Department of Biochemistry. We are conducting Journal clubs regularly and also train I MBBS students for Intercollegeate Quiz competitions. All our faculties have done research works apart from teaching.
