Department of Biochemistry

The discipline of biochemistry has expanded by leaps and bounds. Biochemistry holds a key position in the curricula of medical sciences, and is, one of the basic science subjects for 1st & 2nd year MBBS and 1st year BDS students at IMDC.

Biochemistry has become so successful at explaining living processes that now almost all areas of the life sciences, from botany to medicine, are engaged in biochemical research. The findings of biochemistry are applied primarily in medicine, nutrition, and agriculture. The closely related subjects of Biochemistry like Molecular Biology, Genetics and Bio techniques are also taught to the students so they can face the challenges of advanced upcoming technologies.“ Today's Biochemistry is Tomorrow's Medicine.”

The department of Biochemistry at IMDC, led by Prolific faculty members, has a well equipped biochemical laboratory, having Spectrophotometers for many important diagnostic tests, PH meters etc. For undergraduates, enabling them to understand the clinical aspects. The department is also preparing for advance research laboratory, for post graduates.
