Disease Biology

Although our understanding of disease biology has grown rapidly in recent decades with the advent of modern technologies including proteomics and genomics, underlying mechanisms of many diseases remain obscure. Hence unraveling the biology of complex diseases is an extremely high priority requirement. Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology's (RGCB) Disease Biology research does innovative research in cellular and molecular mechanisms of diseases. The program includes research into molecular reproduction, neurobiology, plant disease biology and chemical biology as well laboratories working on fundamental aspects of cell biology.
