Symbiosis School of Biological Sciences (SSBS)

(formerly Symbiosis School of Biomedical Sciences)

SSBS was established as a new initiative of Symbiosis International (Deemed University) in 2011 under the Faculty of Health and Biological Sciences (FOHBS) to address the need for a school devoted to training, research and development in the field of Biomedical Sciences, Biological Sciences, Biotechnology, Healthcare, Nutrition & Dietetics.

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. We offer M.Sc. in Biotechnology and M.Sc in Nutrition and Dietetics which is a two years fulltime programme in Pune, India.

All the academic activities at SSBS are driven by diverse research activities and students of M.Sc. Biotechnology and M.Sc. Nutrition and Dietetics are exposed to these diverse areas in research. The faculty have strong research background in the areas of Cancer and Stem Cell Biology, Clinical Biochemistry, Vaccine Development, Metabolic and Bioprocess Engineering, Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, Public Health Nutrition, Micronutrient Deficiencies, Food Science, Maternal and Child Health, Nutrition Education, etc.
