Strengths:
Young and enthusiastic staff, well established laboratories.

Weakness:
The students are not aware of the significance of the subject and due to lack of awareness the interest of students fades off.

Opportunity:
Research opportunity via VIVA Centre for Advanced Research & Development

Challenges:
To maintain the interest of the student in the subject of BIOCHEMISTRY which seems to be fading out due to lack of awareness of subject & introduction of applied subjects.

Future plan:
Getting better infrastructure facilities.
Academic improvement of the staff.
Providing state of art research facilities.
