OVERVIEW

The department has been provided with air-conditioned lecture theatre of 200 capacity equipped with IT compatible LCD presentation facilities, conventional OHP and white board to facilitate blended teaching learning sessions. For small group teaching, there are one-demonstration rooms with 80 seating capacity. 

For practicing laboratory skills, the department of biochemistry has well equipped practical laboratory with advanced biochemical instruments as well clinical biochemistry lab in the hospital.

 

Course objectives and contents

(i) GOAL

The broad goal of the teaching of undergraduate students in biochemistry is to make them understand the scientific basis of the life processes at the molecular level and to orient them towards the application of the knowledge acquired in solving clinical problems.

 

(ii) OBJECTIVES

a. KNOWLEDGE

describe the molecular and functional organization of a cell and list its subcellular components;?delineate structure, function and inter-relationships of biomolecules and consequences of deviation from normal;

summarize the fundamental aspects of enzymology and clinical application wherein regulation of enzymatic activity is altered;?describe digestion and assimilation of nutrients and consequences of malnutrition; integrate the various aspects of metabolism and their regulatory pathways;

explain the biochemical basis of inherited disorders with their associated sequelae; describe mechanisms involved in maintenance of body fluid and pH homeostasis;?outline the molecular mechanisms of gene expression and regulation, the principles of genetic engineering and their application in medicine;?summarize the molecular concepts of body defence and their application in medicine; outline the biochemical basis of environmental health hazards, biochemical basis of cancer and carcinogenesis;?familiarize with the principles of various conventional and specialized laboratory investigations and instrumentation analysis and interpretation of a given data;

the ability to suggest experiments to support theoretical concepts and clinical diagnosis.

At the end of the course, the student should be able to :

 

b. SKILLS

At the end of the course, the student should be able to :

make use of conventional techniques/instruments to perform biochemical analysis relevant to clinical screening and diagnosis;

analyze and interpret investigative data;?demonstrate the skills of solving scientific and clinical problems and decision making;

 

c. INTEGRATION

The knowledge acquired in biochemistry should help the students to integrate molecular events with structure and function of the human body in health and disease.

FACILITIES AND INFRASTRUCTURE

Demonstration Rooms

RMRI is adopting best practices for tutorials/demonstrations. Department has two demonstration rooms of 60 Sq.M & 75 seating capacity each fitted with strip chairs, over head projector, slide projector, & other audio-visual aids. 

Lecture Theatre

The Institute has state-of-the-art air conditioned lecture rooms that are designed spaciously to accommodate the students at a time. All the lecture rooms are facilitated with audio visual equipments including LCD projectors, slide projectors, microphones, etc. Apart from the lecture rooms, all the departments have seminar/demonstration rooms with audio-visual aids. Digital IP cameras are installed to record live lectures, which are converted into digital format for the provision of E-learning. Multi-purpose halls are designed for conducting exams. These halls are well equipped with surveillance system to monitor the students during examination.
