Undergraduate And Postgraduate Student Projects

Opportunities are provided for the students to carry out research projectsas  part of their the UG or PG curriculum. Topics are designed in such a waythat the student can develop and demonstrate skill for research using academic concepts, theoretical insights and practical abilities. Phytochemistry based projects are undertaken in the lab for identification of bioactive compounds. Plants or plant products which has day to day interaction with life are mostly selected for projects, which helps in bringing research as well as societal benefits.Projects help the student with the opportunity to undertake sustained, independent, high-level work, which have intellectual credibility.

Utilization of Laboratory Facilities

Laboratory facilities are offered to the schools and college students from different places. This attracts scientific communities fromdiverse places. Exposure of general phytochemical techniques, experiments conducted use of analytical instruments becomes sources of beneficial information to visiting groups. Some of the visitors are from:

Amrita School of Ayurveda.Amritapuri, Kollam.
