Department

The study of biochemistry involves chemical, enzymatic and molecular mechanisms of the human body. The department has well-equipped and fully functional labs for studies and research, including all routine, hormonal, or other special investigations and therapeutic drug monitoring. The central laboratory is completely automated with round-the-clock services and is accredited by CAP and NABL. The laboratories are equipped with an extensive range of advanced equipment for testing and analysis services. These services are carried out by skilled faculty and medical students in collaboration with various organizations for research projects at the national level.

Experienced professors and research scholars provide undergraduate students with comprehensive knowledge of biochemistry. This creates a competitive learning environment for undergraduate students.

Objectives

At the end of the academic session on biochemistry, the student shall be able to:

  • Perform qualitative analysis of various biochemical components that have an impact on the human body and its health.
  • Analyze and comprehend investigative data thereby improving the clinical interpretation of laboratory findings and medical case discussion.
  • Understand complex concepts of molecular biology and be able to integrate it with various biological processes.

Faculty

The department of biochemistry at the Apollo Medical College has experienced professors and tutors who are also enthusiastic participants of the research community.

Labs

The Biochemistry department has a well-equipped laboratory, with a capacity of accommodating 64 students at a time, dedicated to student development by helping them get an on-field experience with the basic principles of biochemical processes. The laboratory education is considered a must for any clinical student to develop preliminary skills like learning to use a piece of apparatus, understanding the basic recording and interpreting various data, and proper usage of statistical methods to come to a proper conclusion.

In the Apollo Medical College, we believe that our laboratory works should be discipline-centered rather than needs-centered. With a high-level view to transforming our trainees to a qualified biochemist, we are persistently providing the opportunities to repeat various practical manipulations and learn from their mistakes aided by our fully functional biochemistry student laboratory.

Biochemistry Research Lab

The college has a biochemistry laboratory which is exclusively used for specialized research purposes. The laboratory is equipped with an extensive range of testing and analysis services for authorized researchers at the medical center. The research studies are carried out by the skilled faculties or students in collaboration with laboratory management after a detailed analysis of the aspects of the research project.

The Central laboratory is completely automated with round-the-clock services and is accredited by CAP and NABL thereby validating our capability to carry on high-quality clinical tests including all routine, hormonal, or other special investigations and therapeutic drug monitoring.
