Admission Integrated M.Sc-Ph.D in Biological Science

Admission Integrated M.Sc-Ph.D in Biological Science



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–

  • Chemical Biology 
  • 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.
