Molecular Biology Laboratory was established in 2020 which is also NABL accredited and ICMR approved, contributed immensely during the COVID-19 pandemic by testing around 18,000 samples.

The Department was fortunate enough to have Dr.B.G.Mantur from 1995 to 2006 at the helm of the affairs. From 2006 to 2019, the department was successfully headed by Dr.B.V.Peerapur, Dr.P.K.Parandekar, Dr. P R Shahapur, Dr Aparna Y. Takpere.   Presently the responsibility of heading the department is being ably carried out by Dr. P R Shahapur with the help of dedicated & cordial staff.  As a result, the department is active in research activities & publications & has more than 100 publications in national & international journals to its credit. Totally 11 research projects are under various stages of completion. The department encourages undergraduates to undertake ICMR –STS Projects. 

Vision:

    • To become a globally competitive Centre of excellence in infectious disease teaching, diagnosis & research.

Mission:

    • To produce next-generation graduates with sound knowledge of basic & clinical microbiology
    • To produce highly skilled & competent microbiologists to face emerging infectious disease threats.
    • To support our national needs of infectious disease diagnosis, outbreak investigations & preventive measures.
