ABOUT The Department


Biotechnology is an interdisciplinary course with application of biology in technology. In order to advent the need of having a professional course the Congregation of Christian Brothers in India had started the course in Biotechnology in St. Edmund's College, Shillong.

Initially the conceptual idea for erecting a professional subject like Biotechnology was first conceived by Bro. L.D. Lobo, ex-principal St. Edmund's College Shillong and Prof. J. Sen, Department of Zoology St. Edmund's College Shillong in the year 2005. Owing to their continuous effort and pertaining through the vernacular norms of the university the department existed into limelight in 2006. Bro. Miranda principal during that time took over all the duties and eventually started the department and inaugurated on 3rdJune, 2006 which was inaugurated by Prof. Pramod Tandon, ex vice chancellor NEHU, Shillong. Prof. J.Sen was appointed the first Head of Department from 2006 onwards along with the appointment of another faculty Dr. Samrat Adhikari.

Presently the department is headed by Dr Samrat Adhikari under the auspicious chairmanship of our Principal Dr.Sylvanus Lamare with four other staffs and two research students. The department has been pursuing very well and has been nominated by Department of Biotechnology, Govt. of India under its STAR college programme.
