Biochemistry is the branch of science which deals with the study of biological processes at the cellular and molecular levels. It is a laboratory-based study that brings together biology and chemistry. It explains all the chemical processes taking place in the living cells.

The Department’s broad goal is to teach biochemistry to undergraduate students in a simple way to make them understand the scientific basis of the life process at the molecular level and orient them towards applying the knowledge acquired in solving clinical problems.

The Department of Biochemistry at MNR is a well-developed, well-maintained, and well-equipped department. It helps UG & PG students with their day- to- day chemical analysis needs, based on their syllabus. The department also manages the clinical lab (Clinical Biochemistry) in the hospital, where a range of biochemical tests are carried out for the patients.
