The Department of Biochemistry was established in the year 1995 under the Zoology department and it attained Independent status in the year 2004. The department started M.Sc., Programme in 2018 under the affiliation of Bharathidasan University, Tiruchirappalli. The Department stands for its academic excellence by making the students to explore new horizons in life sciences through various national and international conferences and seminars. We not only just teach them but kindle interest in them to reach high standards in academic excellence. We are proud that we have been achieving University Ranks for every year. The best platform is provided by organizing various national and international conferences, seminars, workshops in current aspects of Life Sciences. It also conducts regular outreach programmes “Bioscintillators- Science cum Health Exhibition” among rural school students which is a unique feature of our department. It also provides entrepreneur skill development in pharmaceutical products like ointments, lintments and cosmetic products, Food preservation techniques, Clinical Biochemistry, Microbiology, Analysis of Biomolecules and Nutrition & Dietetics. Special interests on extracurricular activities are motivated through Intradepartmental meets- “MOLFEST” and Intercollegiate meets- “ELUTEADUS” every year. The latest concepts and understanding in research was developed by providing internship and minor projects for both UG and PG students which helps in sharpening student’s knowledge. All the faculties have published papers in well renowned journals.
