  1. Brief Introduction of the Department :

The Department of Zoology at Dr. H.S. Gour Vishwavidyalaya, Sagar, is one of the pioneer departments of this university since the inception of the University from 1946. Over years the department has developed comprehensive collaborations with centers of excellence and has been pursuing cuttingedge research in areas of top national priority. The department has a corestrength of faculty members trained in advanced scientific biological research at institutes of national/international repute. The renewed focus of the department presently involves molecular carcinogenesis, immunology & cell signaling, bone biology (with special emphasis on osteoimmunology), fish biology, entomology, environmental biotechnology, vermibiotechnology and molecular molecular medicine. At present the department has around 300 UG students, 40 PG students and more than 25 research scholars doing cutting edge research in various aspects of modern biology.
