Symbiosis School of Biomedical Sciences (SSBS)
Symbiosis School of Biomedical Sciences (SSBS) was established as a new initiative of Symbiosis International University (SIU) in 2011 under the Faculty of Health and Biomedical Sciences (FOHBS) to address the need for a school devoted to training, research and development in the field of Biomedical Sciences, Biotechnology, Healthcare, Nutrition & Dietetics and Food & Beverages.
In the past, scientific research has given highly effective technologies for the prevention and control of human diseases. However, with upsurge of chronic diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular diseases; re-emerging diseases like malaria, dengue; and with the advent of newly emerging diseases like HIV, influenza there is an imminent need to invest and add value to application based research in the field of biomedical sciences.
Our goal is to carry out biomedical research of highest calibre through global cooperation and to develop knowledge-rich highly skilled human resource towards the betterment of mankind and its society.
“The two years journey of Symbiosis School of Biomedical Sciences has helped me become a confident individual. It has given me the opportunity to pursue studies and extra-curricular activities at same time. The institution has tried their best possible to expose us to research by conducting different workshops, poster presentations at conferences and enabled us to write research papers. I thank SSBS for nurturing me and the memories will be cherished forever.”

“Away from the noise and commotion of the city, SSBS is a sanctuary with RESEARCH as its core. I have received hands-on training on all of the sophisticated instruments present in SSBS laboratories. Our syllabus revolved around ‘application-based’ learning which infused our theoretical knowledge with practical handling. SSBS has molded me into an inquisitive student for which I shall always be grateful.”

“During my study in Symbiosis School of Biomedical Sciences, I have learnt a lot. We are given assignments which carve out our scientific reasoning abilities. Activities such as review paper writing and journal club presentations, provide us with the enlightenment we need to improve the way we understand and present scientific papers. Besides there are plenty of instruments and experiments which we get access to, which may not be available in all other colleges. It has been a very good educational experience in all aspects.”
