Institute of Science

PhD Guidance

    All faculty members of Institute of Science are well experienced and recognized Ph.D. guides. There are 30 full time Ph.D. students working under them in various fields of Life Science. Most of the Ph.D. scholars are having scholarships from CSIR-NET, INSPIRE and Maulana-Azad National Fellowship or through Research Projects. Faculties not only have funding support from University but also from external funding agencies like DBT, DST, GSBTM, GujCOST, etc. for specialized research.
