ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

Zoology is central to our understanding of the world. Zoologists seek to discover the fundamental principles that pinpoint animal life focusing on the diversity, function and evolution of animals and thus providing the scientific basis for our knowledge regarding the life style, physiology, diseases and their curative measure in the natural environment by conducting research in insects to mammalian cells.

This Department strives to create a suitable an environment that enables teaching and research to attain high levels of excellence (through Publications and Patents) and in which its members can achieve their full potential right from Molecular Cell Physiology to understanding and targeting diseases like cancer and vector borne diseases, impact of climate change on insect diversity and bat behavior, Cultivation to commercialization of earthworms etc. In addition to the routine work, the Faculties actively engaging in research and also have collaboration with other Universities/ Research Institutions at national as well as International level. So far the Department of Zoology received more than a Crore of Rupees as research grant from various funding agencies like DST, UGC etc.
