Department Of Anatomy
The Department of Anatomy teaches the structure of the human body region wise by actual dissection of cadavers. This is supported effectively by theory classes stressing the applied and clinical departments will be integrated into the teaching programme. Students will be initiated and encouraged at an early stage to learn the basics of research methodology. The Department of Anatomy deals with the study of Morphology of the Human body. To be a good doctor one must understand the founts of anatomy (structure) and physiology (function). Functional necessity is the cause of structural innovation. To understand the function one must understand the structure well. However this study of basic science does not end at the first MBBS level itself and it goes on and on. The Division of Clinical Anatomy maintains lab and learning resource facilities configured to support the instruction of human anatomy at all levels. These modern, fully-equipped facilities are also appropriate for numerous other activities, including surgical skills training, research and development, and lab skills practice. Consistent with the approach that cadaveric specimens together with medical visualization technologies provide the ideal environment for anatomy study, we make our technology-rich dissection lab, Bio Skills lab, anatomy library, and other facilities.
The knowledge of Anatomy is only a dead weight if we do not know how to apply that knowledge with successful skill.
Department of BioChemistry
We are dedicated to understanding the mechanisms by which living organisms carry out their many functions in complete, molecular detail. Our research is generating new tools, knowledge and translational strategies to enhance the quality of life. Our faculty seeks to provide aspiring molecular life to the scientists with the opportunity to obtain a world class education. Our Biochemistry program is one of the largest undergraduate programs in India, we provide excellent training, experiential learning through research, and close contact with faculty and peer mentors, resulting in a small college-like experience embedded within a large, public university. Undergraduate education is a fundamental priority of the University. The undergraduate academic program in biochemistry is directed at providing the foundation required for careers in industry, research, education, engineering, health professions or other interdisciplinary fields.
Biochemistry is the science of life. All our life processes - walking, talking, moving, and feeding - are essentially chemical reactions. So biochemistry is actually the chemistry of life, and it's supremely interesting.
Department of Physiology
From earliest times, people have sought to understand the nature of life. We instinctively want to know how our bodies work, how we are born, how we grow and develop, the nature of illness, what happens when we die. Physiology describes the nature of life. It provides the framework for studying and exploring the bases of life. Physiologists view life from the simplest to the most complex levels of organisation - from the subcellular, to the whole person. Physiologists make an important contribution to areas such as heart disease, reproduction and ageing and global population control.From cardiovascular disease to endocrine signaling, and from cellular transport to invasive species, our research on living organisms is at the forefront of novel discoveries to protect human health. Our research and teaching takes an integrated approach, with methods ranging from modern molecular genetics and biochemistry to cutting-edge in vitro (isolated cell and organ function), and normal and pathologic in function in vivo (genetically modified animal models of human diseases). We offer broad training that prepares our students and postdocs for careers in academia, medicine or industry.
Physiology is concerned with all those phenomena of life that present themself to us in sense perception as bodily processes, and accordingly form part of that total environment which we name the external world.
