Research is an integral and important part of the institute and Dr. B. Lal Institute of Biotechnology actively promotes research among faculty and students. In addition to basic research, which is the backbone of any research, the institute also gives adequate importance and support to applied research. Dr. B. Lal Institute of Biotechnology is working in various fields of Biotechnology with an inter-disciplinary approach such as Medical & Clinical Microbiology, Molecular Diagnostics, Environment Biotechnology, Plant Tissue Culture, Biochemistry, Immunology, Advanced Genetic Engineering, etc. The institute aims to create centres of excellence for research & innovation through its new ventures ‘Centres for Innovation, Research & Development (CIRD)’. The research activities of the institutes are facilitated through the state of the art inter disciplinary laboratories. The institute is actively involved in path breaking innovation projects in different fields of Biotechnology that impacts the society. The institution encourages and promotes a research culture such as providing teaching work load remission, internal mural grants, mini-incubatorship grants, and opportunities for attending conferences and workshops, hands on trainings to faculty members as a part of Faculty Development Programme. The faculties are encouraged to undertake research by collaborating with other research organization & industry.
To be the Best Biotech Research University by conducting world class research, that develop knowledge and contribute to the economic growth and social advancement of the nation and benefit Humanity as a whole.
To develop and expand innovative research programs that align well with institutional mission and strategic plan, address important national & global biotech needs, through development of strategies research clusters of interdisciplinary approach to expand research opportunities & resources that attracts robust numbers of fellows.
The institute has recognized Research Centres & institute receives quantum of research grants from external agencies for major and minor projects. Some of the collaborators are:
Biotechnology is a broad discipline in which biological processes, organisms, cells or cellular components are exploited to develop new technologies & new tools and product developed by biotechnologist are useful in research, agriculture, industry and the clinic. With the vision of exploiting biotechnological tools and techniques for promoting research and developmental activities, mainly to solve the problem, or to develop new product or to create new service, Dr. B. Lal Institute of Biotechnology has constituted a centre, which will act as a bridging gap between academia and industry. The Centre for Innovation, Research & Development (CIRD) will provide us the mining of research work done in various directions and provide us the sustainable pipeline of new products as well as refinements in current processes and products. This centre will comprise of systematic activities combining both applied and diagnostic research, aimed at discovering solutions to problems or creating new tools, goods and knowledge. This centre will also serve as the seed to grow research & development wing of the organization, which will not only give us the edge and also visualize our work globally. The CIRD facilitates the faculty to undertake research by providing research funds (seed money). CIRD has provision for research facilities in terms of laboratory equipment, research journals and research incentives are made available to the faculty The CIRD encourages and promotes a research culture among all its faculty, lecturers and scientists.
