Organisation profile

Faculty of  Biochemistry department    have contemplated research in the field of free radical studies extending and  delivering its benefits  in the diagnosis  and prognosis  of  a wide  gamut of clinical conditions.namely

  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Cancers
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Lipid Research
  • Radioprotection
  • Chemoprotection
  • Phytochemical research

 Quantitation of biomarkers like hormones,growth factors, inflammatory markers, enzymes ,vitamins,  neurotransmitters, tumor markers  etc,  in biological fluids and tissues in  health and disease is the integral part of faculty research projects.

        Phytochemical research encompasses preparation of crude extracts of plants using soxhlet apparatus ,qualitative  and quantitative estimations of oxidant and antioxidant parameters in the crude extract, studying the antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory, antiatherogenic,antioxidant,  hepatoprotective,  nephroprotective  ,radioprotective and chemoprotective effects of these crude extracts in animal models which has been funded by BRNS,DAE,Govt of India.

       Collaborative studies include  HPLC, COMET assay, micronucleus assay and histological parameters.

  Furthermore, the department  intends to collaborate  with laboratories  in the areas of tissue culture,epigenetics, proteomics, genomics and immunohistochemistry to upgrade   research to the next level.
