Department of Biochemistry
The College introduced Bio-Chemistry in 1998 to strengthen the studies of Chemistry further in tune with the changing times. One of the senior most teachers in the department of Chemistry, Dr. Anantha Murthy, took over the charge and extended his academic forte and practical expertise in taking the department to considerable heights.
Presently, Mr. Satish Babu, Lecturer in Chemistry who is actively pursuing his research studies on “Micellar Mediated Hypervalent Chromium Reactions” is the in-charge of the department contributing his greater efforts with an emphasis on modern teaching methods and latest information in the field of the subject. He is endowed with 29 years of teaching experience in the field of Chemistry. He has undergone 10-day training at Infosys Technologies in Analytical Skills. He has gained rich experience in conducting activity-based class-room teaching. His proposal for a Minor Research Project is yet to be formally approved by the UGC SERO.
There are two teachers one on contract basis and one a guest faculty. Their spirited contribution to the teaching activity of the department is well received and there has been a noticeable growth in the students’ interest in the subject.
