The department of Life Science and Biotechnology was established in the year 1993. However, the plan of setting up such a department in Jadavpur University was conceived by the authorities as early as in 1985, since all the leading universities of the country had shown a rising academic interest in such interdisciplinary courses covering the vast areas of Life Science, Biotechnology, Genetic Engineering and Medical Sciences.
