We welcome you to the department of Biochemistry and Biotechnology, St. Xavier’s College, Ahmedabad to give you a glimpse of its culture and ethos. In its sojourn towards enthusing students’ interest in the subject, the department has focused on three aspects: building a conceptually sound foundation of the subject knowledge; the importance of basic and applied research; and the benefits of the subject in development of the society. The department has adopted traditional as well as modern methods of teaching and has put a lot of emphasis on learning by doing. The seeds of research, entrepreneurship, innovations, team work and efficient working are sown by the qualified staff members by establishing a one to one interaction with students through mentoring sessions. We believe in learning and growing together and this belief has seen the department grow from a single room to multiple labs with state of the art infrastructure. We envisage that we will be a place worth a mention by taking small but definite strides. Our students are pursuing research in premier institutions in India, USA, UK, Australia, Austria, Germany and France. They have also been successful in industries and many of them today are Project Heads.
Our Vision: Excel in Biochemistry and Biotechnology teaching, create world class students with a scientific temperament.
Our Mission: Prepare students with academic excellence and social orientation to make the society a better place to live.
