Teaching and Research Laboratories
The Department of Biological and Biomedical Sciences provides excellent opportunities to undergraduate medical and graduate students to receive quality education in classrooms and in laboratories. The Department’s state-of-the-art teaching/research facilities include Multidisciplinary Lab, Microscopy laboratory, Anatomy Dissection Hall and Museum, Tissue Culture Lab. These laboratories are well-resourced for undergraduate medical and postgraduate teaching as well as for faculty research.
The well-equipped Multidisciplinary Laboratory supports the laboratory-based teaching of subjects including Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Physiology and Pharmacology, while Anatomy, Histology, Pathology and Microbiology related lab sessions are held in the Microscopy Lab. The Microscopy Lab is equipped with several modern and high-tech microscopes and other infrastructure to help students understand the microscopic structure of human organs and the organization of tissues. It is also a venue for summative and professional examinations. Multidisciplinary and Microscopy Laboratories also provide an excellent environment to faculty to carry out their innovation-led discoveries through their research projects and many of the senior faculty investigators have their permanent research set-up in these two laboratories.
The Anatomy Dissection Hall is well-furnished with dissection tables, dissection instruments and provides excellent opportunities to medical students to work on latest models and cadavers for dissection and demonstration. Anatomy Museum is well equipped with plastic models of human body parts (including full-size models, torsos and skeletons), specimens of embryology and histology slides.
Experienced faculty and laboratory staff help students to use these modern laboratory facilities.
