The Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya National Mission on Teachers and Teaching emphasizes the need to change the role and working of a teacher from mere disseminator of information and knowledge to the one who advances frontiers of existing knowledge by actively developing and creating new insights into diverse social and physical phenomena.

About Hansraj College

Hansraj College is one of the largest constituent colleges of University of Delhi and has been ranked as one of the top five colleges for Science, Arts and Commerce several times in the last decade.

The faculty and students of the college have contributed immensely in the field of academics, sports and cultural activities. The college faculty is dedicated towards growth and development of the institution academically and administratively to constantly thrive for excellence.

Hansarians have been placed in diverse professions and services worldwide and are bringing fame and laurels to the Institution.

About SGT University

SGT (Shree Guru Gobind Singh Tricentenary) University, Gurugram, spreads over 70 acres of lush green campus enveloped with serene beauty and environment. The Best Private University is situated at Chandu-Bhudera on the outskirts of Gurugram, is less than five kilometers from the Delhi border at Daurala and has easy and convenient access from I.G International Airport.

SGT University came into existence by the Haryana Private Universities (Amendment) Act No. 8 of 2013 making educational opportunities available to all segments of the society under the parasol of Dashmesh Educational Charitable Trust, which was founded in 1999 with the holy cause of propagating the message of Shree Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the great philosopher and social reformer which says “spread of learning is the best service to mankind”. In fact, the seeds for its magnificent growth were sown way back in 2002 with the establishment of the SGT Dental College.

The most valuable investment any educational institution can make is “Nurturing Future Leaders”.

With the continuous rise in expectation of essential leadership standards, SGT University torchbearers have taken responsibility for this investment to nurture the NextGen leaders with a vision to bridge the existing skill gap.

With a firm step forward to attain academic excellence, several Centers of Excellence, laboratories, incubation cell, and industry-academia associations have been set up at the SGT University in association with global leaders.

With dedicate Corporate Resource Center, Centers of Excellence and academic associations like

Apple, Laerdal-Jhpiego, SAP NextGen, UNESCO Bioethics, IBM, ORACLE, University of California – Berkley, Nobel Biocare, Trimble, Intel, NSE, Tally India, OISTAT, SMC India, CIMA & German Academy for Digital Education we are committed to developing naturally confident young innovative leaders who will weave career advancement opportunities through continuous learning & development support and experience they gain.

With the continuously changing nature of work and the war for talent wages, at SGT University we Foster a Culture of Continuous Learning to develop future innovative leaders of international repute, who are quick to learn & implement, understand changing customer needs, highly comfortable & creative with change, are able to revamp operations modestly with an appreciable ROI.

The modern infrastructure and learner-centric andragogy at SGT University extend full support to

the learners and we are focused to invest more in “Nurturing Future Leaders” to produce much more resourceful and productive employee for each

level in the organization be it a “Green Graduates” or a “Tenured Senior Managers”. To map the galloping pace of innovations blended with changing technology and HR systems, we are determined to inculcate Domain-Specific Skills and Soft Skills to our emerging innovative leaders and make them future-ready. At SGT University, we focus on inculcating skills and behaviors for a good cultural fit along with the right academic background.

However, in the nature chemistry and biology are not distinct, and there have been numerous instances in history where the two fields have interacted extensively. Biochemistry is perhaps the most well-known field at the intersection of chemistry and biology.

Still, other areas, such as Biological Chemistry, Chemical Ecology, Bio-organic Chemistry and most recently, Chemical Biology, have emerged due to this collaboration. Biochemistry departments are joined in medical schools, basic science departments, and even divisions within Chemistry departments.

Departments of Biological Chemistry are most commonly found in medical schools and appear to include almost any area of biological research that involves a molecular component, whether that component is protein, DNA, RNA, or a small molecule.

Bio-organic Chemistry is most commonly found in Chemistry departments and

arose as an interface field when it was thought that enzyme mimics—molecules that could potentially function as catalysts—could be designed to replace natural enzymes. Enzymes were often challenging to isolate before cloning, and mutagenesis was not an option.

However, the advancement of PCR and molecular cloning techniques has reduced the need for enzyme mimics, as protein evolution techniques have made the development of proteins with a specific or altered function easier than the chemical synthesis of the enzyme mimics themselves.

However, this field continues to thrive and has evolved into studying molecular

recognition and supramolecular chemistry. Chemical Biology is one of the currently explored areas that has been emerged from the chemistry-biology interface, which includes research involving the synthetic manipulation of the chemical species to study biological systems.

This definition focuses on both “chemical synthesis” and “biological systems” as each is a distinct and mature science in its own right.

The Faculty Development Program on Chemistry-Biology Interface for Scientific Transformations’ mission is to train the faculty and research scholars from diverse scientific backgrounds for productive research at the chemistry-biology interface.

Exposing faculty and research scholars to this enhanced interdisciplinary training curriculum early In their careers establishes a solid foundation for future multidisciplinary research success. Science at the chemistry-biology interface applies chemistry’s synthetic, mechanistic, and analytical abilities to new and exciting areas of biology.
