Observership training programme for one to two weeks duration is conducted regularly in the department for biology students of various undergraduate and postgraduate courses from different colleges, institutions and universities.
So far, around 1500 students have attended this training programme from 2007 - 2013.
The students, during this course, are introduced to the instrumentation, processing techniques and applications of TEM in biology both theoretically and practically through demonstrations.
Many Research scholars (Ph.D students) and Post graduates have utilized this sophisticated instrument for their research and dissertation work.
The ultrastructural studies on their specimens have formed a part of their theses.
Several publications based on these studies have also been made.
More than 500 samples from such students have been studied using the facility and expertise in this department.
Training the technicians working with electron microscope in other institutions in processing of specimens for transmission electron microscopy.
