  1. Name of the Department                                :         6.3 Department of Microbiology

Year of Establishment : 1990-1991

  1. Brief Introduction of the Department :

The department of Applied Microbiology was established in the year 1996. Since then the department has stood among the frontrunners in teaching and research in Microbiology and occupies a place of prominence in the field. In the last ten years the department has witnessed a great deal of expansion in infrastructure and facilities seat of higher learning. With the establishment of central university in 2009, the department was renamed as Department of Applied Microbiology and became a part of School of Biological Sciences.

Currently, department strength includes total of 9 PhD, 27 MSc and 64 BSc students. The department has published a significant number of publications in the leading national and international peer reviewed scientific journals. The department has also organized several hand’s on workshops and two international conferences. At the department of Microbiology research is being pursued in both basic and applied areas of Microbiology. With an inclination towards interdisciplinary research, faculty members in the department have forged active collaboration within and outside the university. Recently, laboratories of bioimaging, infection and immunity and hostpathogen interaction have been established. The major research fields encompass microbial glycosidases, L-asparaginase, thermophilic fungi, mycobacteria, enteric bacteria, zebra fish, biofilm, cancer and biosensors.
