About The Department

When a young scientific mind intends to unravel the mystery underlying the existence of the living world, the interrogation always begins with the simplest yet steady version of life and the interesting metabolic activities. As a key field of biological sciences Microbiology and Biochemistry are the blends of classical concepts with recent advancements of applied science. Starting from being model organism of research to addressing of endless questions of genetics, metabolism, cell biology, medical science, global environment problems, industrial production – Microbiology and Biochemistry as the subjects have immense potential to provide knowledge, research aptitude and job prospects for the young people who aspires to do something new, something different.

With cutting-edge facilities, staff of the greatest caliber, a rigorous curriculum, ongoing industry-academia partnerships, and exposure to the world, we give students expert knowledge, practical skills, and value-added courses to help them prepare for life.

HEAD OF THE DEPARTMENT

 

“Translating knowledge to application is the primary objective of education. “Microbiology” and “Biochemistry” are the most application oriented streams of biological sciences. In Adamas University, with cutting edge lab and subject experts we emphasize on knowledge and application balance to pave the avenue of success. Welcome to the world of modern biology.”

With more than 9 years of post-Ph.D teaching and research experience, Arijit Bhattacharya joined Adamas University on January 2019. He conducted his doctoral research in IICB, Kolkata, on functional genomics approach to decipher cyclic nucleotide mediated responses in differentiation of lower eukaryotes like Leishmania. Following his doctoral research, he served state and central government academic institutions, namely Presidency College (Kolkata) and Tripura Central University, as Assistant Professor of Microbiology. He also obtained about 5 years of post-doctoral research experience from Centre for Research in Infectiology, U-Laval, Canada on omics biology of drug resistance in Leishmania. His areas of research-interest include omics biology of Anti Microbial Resistance, developing intervention strategies and development of strategies to unveil mechanism of drug resistance and tolerance in lower eukaryotes and bacteria. His broad area of teaching involves molecular aspects in microbiology with specialization in microbial genetics, omics and infection biology.
