As the head, I take this opportunity to introduce you to the post-graduate department of biotechnology, University of Kashmir. Our department was established in the year 2000. Within the span of short time our department achieved academic and research excellence and placed itself among the best biotechnology institutes of the country. This was only possible because of teamwork, dedication and honest approach of the biotechnology faculty. I feel myself proud to work with colleagues who have been trained at best international institutes of USA and Europe.
The main objectives of our department are post-graduate teaching and doctoral research program.The post-graduate students are selected on the basis of national level Graduate aptitude test in Biotechnology (GAT-B). The selected students receive a monthly stipend of Rs. 5000 per month. I would like to emphasize that Department of Biotechnology (DBT),New Delhi, funds our post-graduate program.
Looking ahead, I encourage each and every one of you to remain innovative, hardworking andpersistent. Our work has the potential to transform lives and pave way for better future.In conclusion, I am proud to lead such a talented and dedicated team.
