Department of Biocphysics
The Department offers a Ph D Programme in Biophysics. It also participates in the M Phil (Biotechnology) Programme. The main research emphasis of the Department is in the area of theoretical biology and membrane biophysics, in particular ion channels and neurobiophysics. A special emphasis is given on learning, memory and computational neuroscience. The Department is equipped with electrophysiological set up (patch clamp and bilayer systems), which are the most sensitive tools to study such channels. The experimental work is supported by extensive mathematical and computational analysis, e.g. Mathematical modelling, Neural Network. Other areas of active research in the Department are: enzymatic modulation of ion channel, e.g. phosphorylation, biological spectroscopy.
