The Department of Biochemistry commenced its services since the inception of the Institute in January 2021. The vision of the Department is to develop into a state-of-the-art facility that caters to the three-pronged approach adopted by the AIIMS institutions viz. Education, Patient Care, and Research. The Department plans to achieve this in the following manner:

Education

The Department is committed to nurture students with advancements in Medical Biochemistry and to inculcate in them scientific curiosity, critical thinking, ethical attitudes, and practical skills. Besides the ongoing MBBS course, the Department envisions to start post-graduate courses and doctoral courses in Biochemistry and address the needs of the courses in allied specialties.

Patient care

The Department will actively support the Institute in patient care by providing the latest laboratory facilities to aid in diagnosis, monitoring, and prognosis. The services will range from routine lab tests in clinical biochemistry to sophisticated biomarker testing involving molecular diagnostics, genomics, and proteomics. The Department will specifically emphasize providing primordial and primary screening facilities for the diseases prevalent in the community.

Research

The Department is committed to perform health-oriented research and basic science research in the diverse fields of biomedical research such as cancer biology, cardiovascular diseases, metabolic diseases, molecular pharmacology, genomics, transcriptomics, medical genetics, newborn screening, prenatal screening, and data mining. This will be achieved independently as well as by collaborations with academic and research institutes involved in multidisciplinary research, within and outside India.
