Scientific research in Biological Sciences has become interdisciplinary in nature in recent times. It has emerged as a highly dynamic field of investigation resulting from the combined interests of physicists, chemists and biologists. In an effort to foster academic excellence in this field, IACS is conducting an Integrated M.Sc-Ph.D. Programme in Chemical and Molecular Biology from the academic session 2016-2017 in collaboration with Indian Institute of Technology-Kharagpur. The primary objective will be to offer research oriented multi-disciplinary courses, covering.
Cell and Developmental Biology
Biophysics & Biochemistry
Computational Biology and Bioinformatics
Structure determination of Biomolecules
Recombinant DNA technology
Advances in Protein Structure & Function
Functional Materials in Biology
Nanoscale engineering of Biological Systems
Biotransformation in Organic Chemistry
Chemistry of Natural Products
Drug Design and Development
Stem Cell Biology and Therapy
and many more......
The Integrated Programme in Chemical and Molecular Biology is designed to fulfill the requirements of a modern researcher in terms of his/her familiarity with the current development of experimental and theoretical Biological Sciences. This programme will be running based on an MOU between IACS and IIT-Kharagpur with a spirit of collaboration between the two Institutes.
