Institute of Applied Medicine and Research (IAMR), Ghaziabad - By Shivani Sharma - Jessica - 09-23-2013
The institute is located on the outskirts of Ghaziabad, on the national Delhi-Meerut highway, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. IAMR was found in the year of 2000 with the chairman being Shree R.K. Gupta and has completely 13 years successfully so far. It has 3 other sister institutions, out of which one is located in Meerut city and the other two are located in Ghaziabad itself. The institute is affiliated to CCS university, Meerut (formerly Meerut university).
The main attractions of the college are its Biotechnology, Microbiology and Physiotherapy division. The separate building for biotechnology department consists of well-acquainted classrooms in the form of lecture theatres and fully-equipped labs out of which the major ones are Recombinant DNA Technology Lab, Microbiology Lab, Biotechnology Lab, Plant tissue culture lab etc. The main attraction of the labs are PCR machines though and the other devices are constantly upgraded, for instance, just recently, the labs were upgraded from the conventional and time consuming pH-meter to a pH pen which proved very effective, accurate and faster.
IAMR is a 'well known' institute for its research and being developed as a center for advancing career in modern biology. The admission procedure usually requires a written exam followed by an interview. IAMR has always been kind enough to provide seats to the student. Thus the admission procedures are fairly nice to go through.
Currently, there are 3 programmes being carried out in the institute in the biotechnology division, i.e. Integrated M.Tech in Biotechnology which is a 5-year engineering course, B.Sc. Biotechnology Honors (3-year Bachelor Program- UG) and M.Sc. biotechnology (2 year Master Program- PG). While the latter two courses focus on the core biotechnology and its theoretical aspects, the former course i.e. Int. M.Tech. Biotechnology focuses on the technical aspects of the study of this science. The syllabus is designed as such as students don’t face problems while preparing for competitive exams like GATE and NET-JRF after completion of degree.
The institute keeps on organizing events to keep students active in co-curricular activities. A number of other colleges also send their students to participate in these activities. Main among these events are GENETIX and BioFest which are held annually. The annual college fest is the center of attraction for all the students as it provides the opportunity to showcase their other skills, for instance, singing, dancing etc.
The institute has been in run for a good amount of time and is expected to run for extended periods of time mainly because of the fairly simple admission procedures and the attractive yet informative courses it offers! If a student wishes to know more about the college, they can either contact the author or just simply visit, www.iamrgzb.com. I hope IAMR proves to be a destination for you to pursue your further education. The place is worth your kind visit.
