Department of Life Sciences

The Department represents various research interests including fundamental and translational research. Our state-of-the-art labs match the international standards of top-notch universities and institutes worldwide. The global academic collaborations that Shiv Nadar University has with Carnegie Mellon University, Duke University, etc., will help students to have better exposure and understanding, widening the horizon of their development.

Our industrial collaborations fill the gap between conventional Ph.D. and industry-ready professionals, leading them to opportunities for good careers in academia, industry, and hospitals.

In a short period, the department has crossed many prestigious milestones. This department has the maximum number of extramural research grants (more than 25) in the University and good publications in reputed journals.

The department currently has 12 regular faculty members, a Visiting Professor (1), and an INSPIRE Faculty Fellow (1). The research expertise includes the field of molecular and cell biology, virology, parasitology, microbiology, neurobiology, plant biology, protein and stress biology, cancer biology, and bioinformatics.

Our vision is to be a partner in translational research and evolve new technologies with more comprehensive applications. Following are the broad research areas of the Department of Life Sciences: Parasite Biology, Mammalian Cell Biology, Microbiology, Plant Biology, Neurobiology, and Bioinformatics.
