The methodology I follow is bit unique. i believe in taking the students on board to express what they think about any topic. what they know about it. How they relate different topics with each other. My aim is not to teach or deliver a lecture. I believe that after a series of lectures student become able to correlate the processes and events happening in the cell at Molecular level.
I earned PhD in the field of Clinical, cellular and molecular Biology from one of the top University, with more than 15 years of teaching and research experience in the area of Molecular Biology. Besides have been teaching Biotechnology and Virology to Under-grad and Post-grad students.
