Department of Biochemistry and Biochemical Engineering
The Department of Biochemistry was started in the year 1969 under the Allahabad Agricultural Institute and has been offering M. Sc. and Ph. D. degrees in Biochemistry. In 2007, the department was moved under the modern infrastructure facility at Jacob Institute of Biotechnology and Bioengineering and rechristened as Department of Biochemistry and Biochemical Engineering. The department provides a feather to the University by offering tremendous potential in teaching various specialized subjects of Biochemistry & Biochemical Engineering. The department has enough facilities and strong capabilities to teach and conduct research in different areas of biochemistry. The faculty in the department has expertise in the fields of animal and plant biochemistry, enzymology, molecular biology, bioprocess technology, immunology, biochemical engineering etc. The department has excellent infrastructure facilities like audio visual class rooms, well equipped spacious laboratories and equipments required for effective teaching learning process and research.

The commitment to excellence has its foundation in the innovative course structure backed up with well-equipped laboratories and experienced and motivated faculty. The course lays emphasis on understanding of fundamental concepts, also facilitating learning and application of biochemical techniques. The department also runs an active Society of Biochemists and Bioprocess Technologist, which organizes various scientific activities to further enhance the educational experience of the students. The department is dedicated to ensuring that scientific temper is instilled in young and eager minds for a future in research and development.

Biochemistry being a central discipline to every branch of biology deals with the chemical nature, function and various aspects of cellular molecules and processes. Hence the scope of biochemistry is evident in the field of medical sciences, agriculture, drug discovery, forensic crime research, food and cosmetic industries etc. Students trained in the Department of Biochemistry and Biochemical Engineering is placed in various sectors like food, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, water treatment and medicine throughout the nation and abroad.
