Research & Publications
The areas of research are drug delivery, nanomaterials, bioinformatics, separation and purification of biomolecules, production of industrially important enzymes, bioremediation, bioprocess development, bio-separation processes and nanobiotechnology. The students get an opportunity to work in these leading areas of research. They obtain hands-on work experience in using the hi-end equipment in laboratories, as well as the latest modelling and simulation tools. Research Grants: 1.

For me MAHE is a place with ample opportunities to grow professionally and personally.
Learning is an awesome experience at Manipal. This is the best place to be for students.
MAHE is giving us wings to fly and providing us with resources necessary to make it big in life.
MAHE has taught me the value of organisation and to be systematic in all my work.
My experience at MIT has been great from the beginning.
I’m glad I choose Manipal University.
