Research / Internship

Every year for the past three decades, a select number of students after a thorough scrutiny have undertaken research projects, and after an evaluation have been awarded certificates and fellowships. The major areas of research by students have been in plant tissue culture, bioremediation, toxicity studies of herbal formulations, nutritional assessment of rural population, phytochemical analysis of medicinal plants, and molecular biology. A few of our students have also published their work in science journals. More than 70% of our students who have successfully completed their undergraduate research programme have progressed to pursuing doctoral studies or jobs in research and development.

The staff of the department has been involved in research projects in areas such as molecular genetics, biotechnology, pharmacognosy, microbiology etc and have availed grants from funding agencies like UGC, GSBTM etc.
