Research works:


Since the availability of the relevant resources and priorities of collaboration varies from time to time, our fields of activities flourished multidimensionally. Many institutes of home & abroad, Sapporo Medical University & University of Tokyo of Japan, Ghent University of Belgium, BAU, BIRDEM, IEDCR & BSMMU- for instance, have patronized our research through magnanimous collaboration &/or technology transfer. 


Grants from BMRC have also aided our scientific activities. The following works have been accomplished in the department as of today:
