Crescent University congratulates its students and budding scientists who presented papers and won awards at the 8th National conference on advances in biotechnology and health science “SARVASASTRA 2017”.

SARVASASTRA is a Sanskrit word meaning "Knowing Every Science". It is a National Level Conference organised by the Department of Biotechnology of Dr.M.G.R. Educational and Research Institute University. The theme for the Conference this year was Advances In Biotechnology And Health Sciences.

The main objective of the Conference was to provide a platform for discussing and exchanging views on various areas of ‘Advances In Biotechnology And Health Sciences’ and their applications by Academicians, Researchers and Practitioners.

We are delighted to announce the names of the Third year B.Tech Biotechnology and cancer biotechnology students who won awards at “SARVASASTRA 2017”.

Vinodhini under the guidance of Dr. Neesar Ahmed won “Best Revolutionary project award” for the paper titled” Binding effect of diclofenac to BSA at different PH.

Sugirdhana under the guidance of Dr. M.K. Sangeetha won Best Science & Technology project award for the paper titled "The magical micro RNA” miR-15 as a potential therapeutic target for cancer”.

Here's the complete list of our students who presented papers at “SARVASASTRA 2017”.

Vinodhini - Binding effect of diclofenac to BSA at different PH

Suryaharitha - Gene bombs to blast cancer cells

Adithya S G - Hire or fire considering mutation cells

Ashwini - CANCER “the disease of altered genes” for which the cure is also at the gene level

Sugirdhana - The magical micro RNA” miR-15 as a potential therapeutic target for cancer

Among deemed Universities, Crescent University hosts one of the very few broad "Life Sciences School" in the country, providing students, faculty, and staff with the opportunity to learn and perform research in a highly integrative and interactive setting. Our newly established Crescent School of Life Sciences & Technology hosts over 12 active faculty research laboratories studying areas spanning biotechnology, biochemistry, microbiology, molecular biology, and genetics.

School of Life Sciences, B. S. Abdur Rahman University has been offering B. Tech. in Biotechnology from 2014 apart from M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees. The course trains the students in theory and laboratory techniques of national and international importance. The program provides a firm foundation in the principles underlying modern biotechnology techniques, and integrates this theoretical understanding with intensive training in a variety of laboratory skills and in computer applications to biotechnology.

To key goal is to attain new heights in biotechnology education and research, shaping life sciences into a premier precision tool for the future for creation of wealth and ensuring social justice-specially for the welfare of the poor. The dept is keen to maximize the benefits of Biotechnology to the University, the nation and the globe by being an excellent quality, comprehensive, multi disciplinary school that supports and advances biotechnology in the areas of social welfare and entrepreneurship.
