Highlights of AIB

  • Thrust on Research and Development and Project Work under seven operational Research Clusters
  • Researchers working on industry-academia interface. Research is being carried out in the field of large-scale fermentation, developing bio-fuels, and bio-fertilizers.
  • Scholars working under Nanotechnology Cluster are engaged in working on nanoparticle based immunosensor development as well as novel bio-mimetic, polymeric nanomaterials as 3D tissue co-culturing systems for drug screening and tissue engineering.
  • Researchers in Plant Biotechnology Clusters are studying various tissue culture and genetic transformation methods.
  • The Cancer Biology Cluster uses interdisciplinary approaches like cell biology, biochemistry, lipidomics, genomics, nanotechnology and bioinformatics to unravel various facets of cancer and carcinogens.
  • Researchers in Infectious Disease Cluster explore intricacies of fungal and bacterial diseases from molecular to organismal level to decipher complex cellular and physiological interactions.
  • Computational Biology Cluster utilises modern day high-end computational power to solve problems in Biology. Some research areas include genomics, transcriptomics, understand complex structures of proteins etc.
  • Stem cell biology cluster is engaged in exciting research in areas like stem cell therapy, tissue re-generation and skin grafting.
  • Well-equipped laboratories to run academic courses such as laboratory of biochemistry, enzyme technology, microbiology, cell & molecular biology etc.
  • A well-stocked library having a wide range of books, national and international journals as well as reference material related to Biotechnology.
  • AIB has highly qualified, experienced and specialized faculty members from different domains like biopolymer technology, bioprocess technology, microbiology, tissue engineering, etc.
  • Students are encouraged to opt higher studies and research work in abroad and reputed institutions like IITs, IIMs, IISERs, NITs, and Central Universities through different competitive examinations.
  • Choice of elective courses at undergraduate level such as IPR, Photography and Journalism other than core subjects
  • Value added courses provided to students such as education in communication skill, soft skills and foreign languages like French
  • Mentor-Mentee system has been established to enhance support system for students to mitigate their concerns and trouble associated with respect to academic and in-house activities. It helps in creating a conducive learning environment.
  • Continuous and regular assessment of students to improve performance
  •  Supportive alumni to acclimatise students and scholars with industrial practices
  • Attractive scholarship schemes to motivate meritorious scholars through financial rewards for their academic excellence
