Department of Bio-Chemistry

Introduction

The Biochemistry Department was started in the year 1997 with a mission to improve research programmes. Initially a B.Sc programme in biochemistry was started with a meager number of 13 students. The M.Sc biochemistry programme was recognized in the year 2004. The first batch of M.Sc consisted of 40 students. The sanctioned student strength for UG programme is 40 and for PG programmes 40. Both the programmes attract students form neighboring states of Kerala, Pondicherry and Andhra Pradesh. The department has superb research facilities, computer network and access to a wide range of online & hard copy journals. Typically about 60% of our students go on to do research or further study mostly in the biochemistry field, while others find employment in industries, other areas, such as E-publishing, Hospitals, Schools through our placement cell. We aim to produce 100% results & university rank holders, which is fruitfully achieved every year from the onset.
