The Department of Molecular Medicine & Biotechnology was established under Pradhanmantri Shwasth Sewa Yojna (PMSSY) by the 59th Governing body of the institute. Our vision is to improve healthcare through discovery of molecular predictors of diseases and to sculpt the emerging field of Molecular Medicine by fine tuning our teaching and training programs to the changing needs of modern medicine. The Department came into existence in 2010. Molecular Medicine is an emerging scientific field with various connotations. Currently such a discipline exists in only a handful of universities across the world. We are the only such facility in a tertiary-care hospital set up.
