Academic Research Programmes


Research paves the way for innovation. It builds on what has been, improves on what is, and plans for what can be.

The Academic Research Programmes offered by the Faculty of Life and Allied Health Sciences are uniquely structured. They acquaint students with the pressing challenges of the world today while also encouraging them to explore solutions to successfully resolve them. Aligned with the vision and goals of the University, these programmes promote inter- and multidisciplinary thinking and collaboration. They provide a conducive environment for students to sharpen their research skills and pursue their areas of interest. 

The departments of biotechnology, food sciences, and allied health sciences provide students with the ideal platform to learn and pursue interdisciplinary research. Research meetings and journal clubs bring together faculty members and doctoral students from different departments and fields of study. Here, they discuss and deliberate on ideas and concepts with the potential to be converted into collaborative grant applications. 

The Faculty of Life and Allied Health Sciences offers full time and part time doctoral training opportunities in a wide range of research themes and categories. These programmes are developed in keeping with the University Grants Commission (UGC) Regulations by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India. 

Further, the Faculty‚Äôs collaborations with institutes such as the International Infectious Disease and Global Health Training Program, University of Manitoba, Canada, and the Centre for Global Health, University of Illinois, USA, offer online seminars, industry visits, and student exchange programmes that ensure exposure to global health issues.
