Department of Pathology

Research is integral to the ethos of the department and each faculty member is actively pursuing AFMRC and departmental research projects. Undergraduate students are encouraged and assisted in applying for ICMR short term projects. The facilities of Electron Microscopy, Immuno-histochemistry and Molecular Pathology are being used in this direction.
