Eligibility criteria for admission to Ph.D. programme in the Department of Biochemistry, Faculty of Life Sciences:

Master’s degree or its equivalent recognized by the university in any of the following subjects:

Biochemistry / Biochemistry & Molecular Biology / Clinical Biochemistry / Medical Biochemistry with not less than 55% marks in the aggregate or its equivalent CPI / CGPA / NAG.



Biochemistry as a branch of study is gaining added impetus with each passing day. An innumerably large number of students opt for this branch of study considering the fact that there exists vast employment opportunities for those with PhD, MSc and even Degree certificates. These candidates are absorbed in Research institutions and also as faculty in various colleges and Institutions. Adequate opportunity also exists for them to be selected as scientists, research officers, research associates and as chemical examiners.


Ph.D. Biochemistry Programme:

Following are the broad areas of research:

Applied microbiology and biotechnology; Bioinformatics and molecular biology; Diabetes and free radical biology; Environmental and molecular toxicology; Enzyme technology and environmental biotechnology; Epigenetics and genome integrity; Mechanism of cancer induction and treatment; Nanobiotechnology and nanotoxicology; Nanomedicine and its therapeutic delivery; Protein folding and aggregation; Protein purification and characterization.


Programme Educational Objectives and Programme Outcomes:

To produce well trained, nationally and internationally competent Ph.Ds. We endeavour that our students develop a fascination and passion for science that enables them to strive for success in scientific settings.
