Centre for Health Science & Technology


With the aim to sow seeds of new age experts in the field of medical biotechnology, molecular microbiology, computational biology and bioinformatics, CHeST – JISIASR Kolkata brings in job-oriented translational research-based post-graduate programs which will make the students ready to contribute to the data-driven discoveries in life sciences, an obvious need in this era of omics technologies and exponential growth of high-throughput data. 


“In many of my projects, I have applied whole genome sequence based approach, and that’s how I have taken a genuine interest in collaborating with JIS Institute of Advanced Studies and Research Kolkata, a growing institute aimed to be a centre of excellence in the near future.”

– Anuradha Ghosh, PhD, Associate Professor, Pittsburg State University, Kansas, USA


M.Sc In Medical Biotechnology And Bioinformatics


Why These Courses ?

The call of technological expertise in both academic and industry sectors of health science can only be ever-increasing. There is a continuous need for biotechnological developments, especially for direct medical applications. Simultaneously, the advent of newer technologies asks for powerful bioinformatic solutions on how to extract, tackle, analyze and visualize the biologically meaningful data for subsequent research and industrial applications. This scenario puts qualified bioinformatics professionals, especially the ones with expertise in analyzing medical biotechnology data, in high demand for top-salary jobs worldwide.

“The Masters program in Medical Biotechnology and Bioinformatics will make the students ready to contribute their knowledge and skills towards the development of molecular diagnostic devices, drugs, vaccines, procedures and systems to solve the health problems and improve the quality of lives.”
