The Department of Biochemistry has a major contribution in imparting education in biochemistry and its allied subjects. It helps to assess the risk factors for development of multifactorial diseases such as diabetes mellitus or myocardial infarction, and diagnoses of other diseases using sophisticated auto-analysers, and other techniques. It assists in the treatment of patients.


Biochemistry also forms the basis of several cutting-edge technologies employed in molecular biology with varied applications in diagnostics and forensic medicine.
