About the Department
The Department of Molecular Nutrition, was established in the year 2013, with the aim of realizing
classical ‘Nutritional biology’ at a molecular level. To understand the molecular aspects governing nutrition,
the strengths of ‘basic research’ and ‘the latest technological advances made in biology’ need to
be combined. By seeking the best talent from around the country, and by collaborating with the finest in the world, the
department envisions to carry out cutting edge research in various areas.
A dedicated student community forms the bedrock in achieving these goals; such a talent pool needs to be nurtured. Therefore, a new initiative by the department is an "Integrated Ph.D. program in Nutrition biology". This program aims at seamlessly integrating Nutrition with diverse areas of science - like biology, chemistry, physics, bioinformatics, modelling, statistics and the like. This we believe would create the much needed human resource in this area, and would cater to both the academia and the industry. ( Admission for DBT sponsored MSc-Ph.D. programme in the area of Nutrition Biology under AcSIR at CSIR-CFTRI).
