ABOUT The Department


Biochemistry is a discipline, whose purpose is to unravel the intricate molecular basis of life. The progress of Biochemistry has been exceptionally rapid and past several years have witnessed brilliant discoveries that have expanded its applications in alleviating human sufferings through deep impact on medical and agricultural fields.

As Biochemistry was gaining increased importance in the curricula of Universities and Colleges in India, we at St. Edmund's College, also took keen interest to introduce Biochemistry at the Honours level in the curriculum for undergraduate students under North Eastern Hill University, Shillong, which already had an established Biochemistry Department by then at the PG level. With sincere efforts from the college administration and teachers and with the active support from the Department of Biochemistry, NEHU, the subject was introduced as an Honours subject at St. Edmund's College, beginning with the session in June 1997.

The Biochemistry Department is one of the six science departments in the college selected under Star College Scheme by Department of Biotechnology, Govt. of India. Under this scheme the department was able to conduct various academic and research activities which are student oriented like students research in the form of small projects, guest lectures, workshops, inter-college students seminars, outreach programs, free medical camps, visits to premier institutes/hospitals, students summer training and participation in conferences.
