M.D. Biochemistry or Doctor of Medicine in Biochemistry is a postgraduate Biochemistry course. Biochemistry is the study of the structure, composition, and chemical reactions of substances in living systems. Biochemistry emerged as a separate discipline when scientists combined biology with organic, inorganic, or physical chemistry and began to study such topics as how living things obtain energy from food, the chemical basis of heredity, and what fundamental changes occur in disease. Biochemistry is applied to medicine, dentistry, and veterinary medicine. In food science, biochemists research ways to develop abundant and inexpensive sources of nutritious foods, determine the chemical composition of foods, and develop methods to extract nutrients from waste products, or invent ways to prolong the shelf life food products. In agriculture, biochemists study the interaction of herbicides with plants. They examine the structure-activity relationships of compounds, determine their ability to inhibit growth, and evaluate the toxicological effects on surrounding life. The duration of the course is three years.

M.D. Biochemistry Eligibility

  • BAMS with minimum 55% marks
  • Some of the very reputed institutes conduct entrance examination for admission.

M.D. Biochemistry Course Suitability

  • Those who want to focus on the scientific study of the chemistry of living systems, their fundamental chemical substances and reactions, and their chemical pathways and information transfer systems, with particular reference to carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids are good match for it.
  • Applicants who want to have instruction in bio-organic chemistry, protein chemistry, bioanalytical chemistry, bioseparations, regulatory biochemistry, enzymology, hormonal chemistry, calorimetry, and research methods and equipment operation also is good suit for it.

How is M.D. Biochemistry Course Beneficial?

  • It is beneficial to train scientists to identify, address, and solve biomedical problems at the molecular level. The themes of molecular structure, molecular mechanisms, and molecular regulation are recurrent throughout the diverse research areas represented by the biochemistry faculty.
  • The Course is also beneficial for further studies such as Ph.D. etc.
  • They can also become teacher and lecturer both in schools and colleges on private and government basis.
