MD Journal Club at the Department of Biochemistry

  • 2024-01-16

On the auspicious date of January16, 2024, the Department of Biochemistry at Santosh Medical College orchestrated a significant journal club meticulously aligned with the rigorous standards set forth by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). This event, held from 2:00 PM to 3PM, served as an intellectual symposium for MD students to showcase their research endeavors and contribute to the scientific discourse in biochemistry.

Dr. Renuka (MD 2nd Year):

Topic: "Metabolic transitions regulate global protein fatty acylation"
Dr. Renuka, a second-year MD student, enriched the journal clubit delves into the intricate interplay between cellular metabolism and the post-translational modification of proteins through fatty acylation. The study, employing advanced techniques such as mass spectrometry and biochemical assays, meticulously elucidates how shifts in metabolic states, such as transitions between glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation, dynamically influence the acylation patterns of proteins.


Question and Answer Session:

Following the enlightening presentations, the journal club transitioned into a dynamic question and answer session. This interactive phase facilitated a deeper understanding of the topics presented and encouraged scholarly discussions among the participants.

Distinguished Attendees:

The seminar was graced by the esteemed presence of mentors, senior faculty members, and mentors of postgraduate students, including:

  • Dr. Juhi (Head of Department)
  • Dr. R N Gupta (Associate Professor)
  • Dr. Eram (Assistant Professor)
  • Dr. Surbhi (Assistant Professor)
  • Mrs. Priya & Mr. Sunil (Tutors)

Additionally, the participation of Ph.D. scholars and MD PG students, Dr.Shivangi, further enriched the academic dialogue, creating a multidimensional learning environment.


The Journal Club presentation served as a platform for knowledge dissemination and intellectual exchange. Dr. Renuka Yadav, along with the collaborative team, showcased the significance of the insights gained from this presentation contribute to the academic and clinical understanding of the subject.

In conclusion, the journalclub not only adhered to the NAAC guidelines but also stood as a testament to the commitment of Santosh Medical College's Department of Biochemistry to academic excellence. The collective efforts of faculty, mentors, and students ensured that the event was not only informative but also fostered a culture of collaborative research and continuous learning. This comprehensive engagement reflects the department's dedication to maintaining high standards of education and research within the realm of biochemistry.
