Biochemistry explores the chemical processes within and related to living organisms. The subject focuses on processes happening at a molecular level. It focuses on what happens inside our cells by studying components like proteins, lipids and organelles. It also looks at how cells communicate with each other, for example during growth or fighting illness. Biochemists need to understand how the structure of a molecule relates to its function, allowing them to predict how molecules will interact.
By using chemical knowledge and techniques, Biochemists can understand and solve biological problems
Biochemistry covers a range of scientific disciplines, including Genetics, Microbiology, Forensics, plant science and medicine. Because of its breadth, biochemistry is very important and advances in this field of science over the past 100 years have been immense. It’s a very exciting time to be part of this fascinating area of study.
Biochemists find opportunities in Hospitals, Universities, Agriculture, Food institutes/organisations, Cosmetics, Forensic crime research, Drug discovery and development, and many other sectors.
In India, the hospital, pharmaceutical, food processing and agricultural sectors are all growing at a significant rate and development of biotech industries is being given prime importance by the Government of India to make it $100 billion industry by 2025, creating greater opportunities for Biochemists.
In this context, University Programme in Biochemistry at postgraduate level in India remains relevant for the creation of trained human resources.M. Sc. (Biochemistry) at REVA UNIVERSITY has been designed to meet the human resources needs of existing and futuristic Biotech industries and Biotech research organizations involved in pharmaceuticals, food processing, agriculture, biomedical devices development; academic institutions and hospitals. The programme is designed to produce graduates with higher order critical, analytical, problem solving and research skills; ability to think rigorously and independently to meet higher level expectations of biotech industries, research organizations, hospitals and academic institutions. The programme in addition to core courses covers a number of specialized electives in the areas of Bioinformatics, Food Technology, Pharmacovigilance and SAS, Clinical Biochemistry and Diagnostics, and Plant & Industrial Biochemistry. The short term training in industries / R & D institutions, Internships, Student Projects in Biochemistry, Clinical Research, SAS and Clinical Diagnostics provide opportunity for the students to choose and acquire in-depth knowledge and skills in their area of interest.
Collaborated Research Institutes/Industries/Diagnostics for Internships & Projects
Such collaborations will help a student to compete in employment and research to recognize them as Research Scholars, Scientists in reputed Chemical, Biological, Healthcare, Pharmaceutical, Agriculture, Petrochemicals, Cosmetics, Food Industries, Clinical data Management and Diagnostic Laboratories.
The aim of the programme is to produce postgraduates with advanced knowledge and understanding of Biochemistry; higher order critical, analytical, problem solving and attitudinal skills (transferable) to meet expectations of hospitals, Biotech industry involving Biochemical reactions, academia, and research institutions or to take up entrepreneurial route.
The Programme Educational Objectives are to prepare the students to:
On completion of this programme, a student will be able to:
Bachelors Degree of 3 years with Biochemistry, Chemistry, Microbiology, Agricultural Sciences, Animal Sciences or any Life Sciences as Biochemistry as principle or subsidiary subjects with 45%(40% in case of SC / ST) of marks in aggregate from any recognized University / Institution or any other qualification recognized as equivalent there to are eligible for admission to the program.
