“ I thoroughly enjoyed my time as a Master’s student in the Department of Biotechnology. Ours was the very first batch to join the department, and I loved the research-oriented Fellow environment under the tutelage of Dr.Sukhdev S Bhullar and Prabhjit Singh. MSc-Biotechnology was a great program with broad coverage of theory and experimental work; a wonderful learning opportunity with enthusiastic people all around. Memorable times indeed! ”

" If the time machine is invented, I would like to set it back to the  year 1992 when I came to Shri Guru Nanak Dev University with asmall bag in hands and outsized dreams in my eyes. My mind is full of those sweet memories where I had gone through such an excellent educational environment and acknowledge the efforts of our respected teachers that dispensed multifaceted knowledge round the clock and made us competent to face the world of competition. Isalute the guidance and directions of these torch-bearer that developed an outstanding foundation in my career. "

" My name in Bhuvanesh Dave and I was a student of Biotech from 1994-1996. I appreciate you asking for a short text back from all of us. After my Masters I went on to work for Sigma Aldrich for 2 years before starting my Ph.D. in Biochemistry an Molecular Biology at UAMS in the United States. I went on to do a couple of post doctoral fellowships at Arkansas Children’s nutrition center and Baylor College of Medicine before becoming an Assistant Professor at Houston Methodist in the Cancer Center in Houston for 7 years. Recently I left the academic world to world to start my own biotech company which aims to make organoids from rare cancer patients to provide targeted treatment options for this neglected clinical area. My memories of GNDU center around my friends and my mentor Dr. Gurcharan Kaur who provided great guidance in the initial stages of my scientific career. "

“ Doing my M.Sc. Biotechnology at GNDU was the experience and opportunity that helped me discover and pursue my passions later in life. I would highly recommend prospective students to apply, and current students to work hard, be curious to learn, ask questions, and take advantage of all the department has to offer. I wish the department my best wishes and hope to keep visiting to see more and more progress.”
