In a world where fiction meets reality and technology transcends the imagination of the average human, it comes as no surprise that we can now engineer new life. Technological advances in biology have caught the world by storm and revolutionized ideas, concepts, products and services. For instance: Healthcare services.
Every human being is unique. This is reason enough to believe that healthcare must apply a novel method that stands in contrast to the one-size-fits-all approach. Indeed, disease treatment and preventive strategies must be developed taking into consideration each individual thus leading to the new concept of Precision medicine or Personalized Medicine.
Taking shape steadily, Personalised Medicine takes into account individual variability in genes and also the personal lifestyle of the person. Using Artificial Intelligence in healthcare offers breakthrough predictive analytics that aids early detection of deadly diseases with greater accuracy. Education in the field of Biotechnology and Bioinformatics helps to equip students with a clear understanding of personalized and precision medicine.
Another medical marvel is the printable organ. This artificially constructed device, designed and created using 3D printing technology, facilitates organ transplantation procedures in critical timelines, thus saving precious human lives. The field of Biomedical Engineering provides students with knowledge and skill sets to carve a niche for themselves in such exciting areas.
With a mission to provide education in futuristic areas, the School of Biotechnology and Bioinformatics, a constituent unit of D Y Patil University, Navi Mumbai offers interdisciplinary programmes viz Biotechnology, Biomedical Engineering, Bioinformatics and Data Science, Food Science and Technology under one canopy. The University featured in the top 100 universities in the National Institutional Ranking Framework. The college is among the few in our country to house sophisticated laboratories with state-of-the-art infrastructure that enables interdisciplinary learning opportunities
