Research Grants

Symbiosis School of Biological Sciences (SSBS) (formerly School of Biomedical sciences) "Research" is Culture. Students of M.Sc. Biotechnology are encouraged to be imaginative and think in terms of originality and distinctiveness. We train and nurture our students in an intellectual environment which is not only conducive in creating new knowledge but also provides them with the right impetus for a life dedicated to scientific endeavors.

The synthesis of teaching and research is fundamental to Symbiosis School of Biological Sciences. Therefore our faculty who engage in teaching students have excellent scientific aptitude and come from strong research backgrounds. Presently research is focused on areas such as Stem Cell Biology, Immunology and Vaccines, Bioprocess engineering, bacterial quorum sensing, metabolic engineering.
