Seminar at the Department of Biochemistry

  • 2024-01-11

On the auspicious date of January 11, 2024, the Department of Biochemistry at Santosh Medical College orchestrated a significant seminar meticulously aligned with the rigorous standards set forth by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). This event, held from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM, served as an intellectual symposium for MD students to showcase their research endeavors and contribute to the scientific discourse in biochemistry.

Speakers and Topics:

The seminar featured three distinguished speakers, each representing a distinct facet of biochemistry:

  1. Dr. Shivangi (MD 1st Year):
    Dr. Shivangi, in her presentation, explored the revolutionization ofPoint of Care Testing (POCT) healthcare by providing rapid and convenient diagnostic results at or near the patient. This seminar explores the significance of POCT in improving patient outcomes, reducing turnaround times, and enhancing overall healthcare efficiency. Also discussed the exploring area into the technological advancements, challenges, and futureprospects of this critical healthcare approach.
  1. Dr. HIMANSHU (MD 1st Year):
      Dr. Himanshu, in his presentation, explored the nuances of liver function tests, elucidating their clinical relevance, diagnostic applications, and implications in various medical scenarios.
  2. Dr. Vidushi (MD 1st Year):
      Dr. Vidushi, in her presentation, explored the nuances of kidney function tests, elucidating their clinical relevance, diagnostic applications, and implications in various medical scenarios.
  3. Dr. Neeraj (MD 1st Year):

Dr. Neeraj , presented seminar on protein-energy malnutrition provided a profound exploration of the molecular intricacies underlying this nutritional disorder. Analyzing biochemical pathways and metabolic disruptions, the report sheds light on the biochemical basis of malnutrition and its impact on overall health. The seminar underscored the significance of biochemistry in developing targeted interventions and nutritional strategies to alleviate protein-energy malnutrition.

Question and Answer Session:

Following the enlightening presentations, the seminar 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)
