The Center for M.Phil. / Ph.D. Programs established under the SDUAHER was done with an objective to offer quality M.Phil. and Ph.D. programs through Post graduate departments with emphasis on bio-medical, bio- technological, interdisciplinary and human genetics programs for research. The overall frame work of the Centre is to strengthen the Medical, Allied Health and Basic Sciences Research for the benefit of mankind and also to satisfy the research thirst of the scholars in realizing their dreams.
The Centre offers these programs through cytogenetic and molecular genetics under Faculty of Medicine and Allied Health Sciences. The major fields under Faculty of Medicine are basic medical science subjects such as Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Pathology and Pharmacology Community Medicine and Clinical subjects like Medicine, ENT, Ophthalmology and Radiology. The research activities are of interdisciplinary nature and as for as possible clinically oriented. To augment research capabilities in these areas, the University has created Junior Research Fellowship.
University has the central genomic laboratory, central diagnostic laboratory, teaching hospital, various pre,para and clinical departments, skill and simulation laboratories , toxicology laboratory, animal house, herbal garden and others supporting the Centre for its unique identity in terms of emerging disciplinary and interdisciplinary challenges through research by Ph.D. scholars.
Apart from getting trained in specific methodologies and gaining hands on experience, every student of this Centre shall be exposed to Research methodologies and biostatistics compulsorily for a period of six months during pre-Ph.D. and pre-M.Phil. course work. Students will also be exposed to scientific writing workshop by inviting eminent experts from various research fields.
This University Centre presently associates with Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Allied Health Sciences. Senior professors, associate professors, assistant professors of the Medical College and from university departments, research supervisors and scholars and post graduates for whom the center acts as a hub for biomedical research, act as active workers of the center in addition to their routine duties.
Scholars of this Centre publish their scientific papers in various refereed journals and present papers in conferences and symposia of national and international importance. Future focus of the Centre will be to blossom to a Center of Advanced Research and to become eligible to promote a dialogue with public about medical research.
The Centre has a documentation Centre and laboratories. .
