Laboratory

Biochemical Research Laboratory (BRL)
BRL focuses on ethanopharmacological, pharmacognosy, phototherapeutics as well as molecular and biochemical aspects of plants and microbes. BRL is exerting efforts on wound healing potential of botanicals with conventional and modern methods. The aim is to scientifically evaluate, indigenous ethanobotanicals as complementary and alternative medicines. BRL is also dedicated to analyze variation within species of microbes by employing the multidisciplinary approach. This knowledge will be used in the development of new therapeutics and to report new inventions globally as publication and patents.

Human Genetic Laboratory (HGL)
HGL deals with a comprehensive approach to search novel compounds for effective treatment of genetic diseases such as sickle cell anemia and cancer. The infrastructure of the laboratory is divided into molecular genetics, cytogenetics and cell lymphocyte culture laboratory. The laboratory is presently working on novel therapeutics from plants/microbes with toxicological studies and molecular diagnosis of sickle cell anemia. Additional facilities like diagnosis, molecular analysis of haemoglobinopathies, lymphocyte culturing, cytogenetic studies, cell culture and toxicity tests are provided.

Immunology Laboratory (IL)
IL aims to impart knowledge of the immune system and to promote awareness on tuberculosis. It is concerned about the prevalence, epidemiology and drug resistance among the Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains. It also involves search of unexplored microbial diversity capable of producing anti-tubercular metabolites, novel antibiotics from endophytes to overcome MDR-TB drug resistance. Laboratory assists young researchers for TB culturing, identification and detection of tuberculosis via molecular studies using PCR and dye based analysis.

Stem Cell Technology Laboratory (SCTL)
SCTL works in stem cell research, which focuses on in vitro differentiation of stem cells into lineages and maintenance of cell cultures. The research activities of laboratory range from cell culturing, differentiation and cell proliferation/cytotoxicity/anticancerous assays. The laboratory is well equipped with aseptic culture room, cell sorter, flowcytometer, incubator, deep freezer etc. for conducting stem cell research. SCTL also assist students to work in isolation of animal derived stem cells and human teeth.

Molecular Biotechnology Laboratory (MBL)
MBL pursue research activities in field of medical biotechnology. With an endeavor to encourage emerging biotechnologist and microbiologist to work on various aspects of molecular biology viz., carrier screening, DNA and protein profiling, Screening, purification and characterization of novel therapeutics. The infrastructure facilitates and provides space for students, researchers and doctors to conduct research on all promising areas of biotechnology. It promotes collaborations across disciplines and promises creative learning opportunities.

Central Instrumentation Laboratory
