The School of Life Sciences offers programs of study leading to M.Sc. and M.Phil.-Ph.D. degrees in Life Sciences. The students are offered pre- M.Phil.-Ph.D. courses covering various aspects of advance research in Life Sciences. The nature of courses is of interdisciplinary with courses intricately integrated with subjects like chemistry, physics and computer science in view of close interface between biological and physical sciences. The School has well equipped Central Instrumentation Facility (CIF) to support the experimentation and high quality research. In addition, well equipped laboratories facilitate to conduct advanced research on mammalian cells, plant cells, bacteria and viruses.

The School of Life Sciences will have the following programme for the Academic Year 2016-17.
  1. M.Phil./Ph.D. in Life Sciences
  2. M.Sc. in Life Sciences
