The B. Sc Genetics and Molecular Biology program at The Apollo University is designed in view of the increasing demand for training manpower in the area of Cancer Biology, Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology. The committee of Faculties & experts of Apollo Hospitals Group proposed this program to explore the study of diseases of living organisms, covering everything from the interactions of animals in their environment to how genes are expressed and related to various diseases. The program is broad based and it would give a good insight into modern biology and important component of hands-on training to the students. Thus, by nature it will be an interdisciplinary program. Moleclular Biology is the applied domain of life and natural sciences, used for diagnosis, prevention and treatment of human diseases. The various streams of biomedical science are Molecular Genetics, Pathology, Biochemistry, Molecular & Cell Biology, Bioinformatics, Immunology, Stem cells and Tissue Engineering, Epidemiology, and Molecular Therapeutics. At The Apollo University, we have skilled and experienced faculty to impart training in various tools and techniques of Molecular Biotechnology. Moreover, we facilitate our students with the latest technologies during the lab sessions to ensure a hands-on experience, this in turn helps them become industry- ready. The curriculum is designed with an aim to provide project-based learning, wherein the students work on projects as part of the study. On 2nd February 2023, Visitor Education Program Agreement (VEPA) has been signed between The Apollo University and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Inc., 75 Francis Street, Boston, MA 02115, USA. In addition, to improve the students research skills, the university has signed memorandum of understanding (MoU) with University of Hyderabad, India and Aurobindo Pharma, India, which provide training to the students of B.Sc. Genetics and Molecular Biology.
