(A DST-FIST, Govt. of India and DBT BOOST, Govt. of West Bengal –sponsored Department)
Department of Zoology was born in 2009, the year commemorating the 150th year of publication of the Origin of Species and the 200th year of Charles Darwin. The department follows a two dimensional approach in research and teaching, namely - molecular approach and organismal approach. At molecular levels, emerging concepts and empirical evidences in the realms of Cellular Biology, Immunology, Oncology etc are pursued as thrust areas. Behavioural Ecology, Sociobiology and Conservation Biology are the thrust areas at the level of Organismal Biology. The involvement of the department in the above mentioned research areas can be envisaged from the projects, publications and infrastructural grants such as DST-FIST and DBT BOOST during the last 5 years. The department has a strong societal dimension too where it plans research and implementations in the areas of local biodiversity documentation and conservation, justified sharing of folklore medicine to treat infectious and chronic diseases.
