Annamalai University Annamalainagar-608 002, Tamilnadu
Annamalai University is a unitary residential University instituted in the year 1929 by the great philanthropist Dr.Rajah Sir Annamalai Chettiar of Chettinad, the first Founder Pro-Chancellor. Subsequently, the University reached new heights of excellence under the guidance of second founder Pro-Chancellor, Dr.Rajah Sir M.A.Muthiah Chettiar of Chettinad and the Present Pro-Chancellor Dr.M.A.M. Ramaswamy Chettiar. The University has nine faculties and forty-nine Departments. The University hosted the spectacular 94th Indian Science Congress during January, 2007. Annamalainagar is already a busy and full-fledged University town, east of Chidambaram, the abode of Lord Nataraja. The University campus, including the college, hostels, and playgrounds, occupies an area of about thousand acres.
The Department of Zoology, Annamalai University has been making outstanding strides in both teaching and research activities since 1939. The Department offers M.Sc., Zoology, M.Sc., Environmental Biotechnology, M.Sc., Microbiology and M.Sc., Integrated Zoology (5 Years) and M.Sc., Integrated Bio- Informatics (5 Years) and M.Sc., Integrated Microbiology(5 Years) programmes in addition to M.Phil., and Ph.D., Programmes in all the subjects. The Department of Zoology has received UGC-SAP grant recently.
About the Workshop
Biologically active molecules, both of synthetic and natural origin play a vital role in our life in one way or other. Bio-active molecules from resource are of botanicals source of Pharmaceuticals and neutraceuticals. In another lines of development, with the advent of biotechnology, the production of recombinant bio-active molecules has attracted a lot of interest. Such recombinant molecules have great botanical for commercialization as they are useful in diagnostic tools. Phytochemists/ synthetic organic chemists/ biologists/ biochemists and scientists/ researchers working in medicine, pharmacy, biotechnology, agriculture, veterinary, marine and food science, etc. are deeply involved in both understanding as well as development of newer biologically active molecules, using new approaches such as genomic technologies and in- silico modeling. The research in this area has received immense interest among researchers and has shown encouraging progress.
Keeping the wide avenues, applications and the challenges involved in the development of biologically active molecules in mind, it is proposed to organize a national workshop on trends and techniques in isolation of bioactive molecules.
Pharmacology & Toxicology
Isolation of bioactive molecules from various sources
Drug design and development
Industrial application of bio-active molecules
Quality, safety, and efficacy of drug
Hands on training
Soxhlet extraction apparatus and steam distillation apparatus
