The Department has a duly elected Departmental council named “CHIMERA” which organises seminars and interactive sessions with eminent scientists, academicians and entrepreneurs to abreast them with latest research in the field. The following are the office bearers

  • President
  • Vice President
  • Secretary
  • Joint Secretary
  • Treasurer

Every year an annual departmental fest PLEXUSis also organised to celebrate science in which students are encouraged to discuss and learn about new techniques and happenings in the field of biomedical science. The main goal behind organising these events, seminars, workshops is to encourage overall development of the students along with the academics by providing them opportunities to explore their interests in various fields of research, providing them hands-on training of several important techniques.
