New
A new course in M Sc biophysics is offered starting from the Academic Year 2001-02. The Department of Physics, perhaps, is the first in the state under the universities to start an innovative and multidisciplinary program in Biophysics. For information on this program contact Prof Dr R D Mathad, Course-in-Charge for Biophysics
