About Department

The Biochemistry department owes its origin to the vision of Dr. K. G. Naik, Professor of Chemistry Department, who recognized the importance of Biochemistry and donated to the university a sum of about Rs. 60,000/- presented to him on the occasion of his 60th birthday by friends and well-wishers, including former students to establish the department of Biochemistry. Accordingly, the department was established in 1955 and was appropriately named after him. The department had a modest beginning in a small area of about 500 sq. mts. in the chemistry department from where it has grown to the present size of about 2500 sq. mts.  Starting from first batch of just four M.Sc. students the department has grown immensely and now admits thirty five students annually.
