NIAB is aimed to harness novel and emerging biotechnologies and take up research
in the cutting edge areas for improving animal health and productivity. The
Institute's focus of research will be on Animal Genetics and Genomics,
Transgenic Technology, Reproductive Biotechnology, Infectious Diseases,
Nutrition Enrichment. The institute aims at translational
research leading to the development of novel vaccines, diagnostics and improved
therapeutic molecules for farm animals. The Institute plans to promote bio
entrepreneurship by providing support environment for commercial tenants
involved in the development of farm animal based products.
This Department of Biotechnology aided autonomous Institute is created for development of sustainable and globally competitive livestock industry through innovative technology. I believe that animal health and efficiency in generating animal based products with a target to increase quantity as well as quality of such products is the ultimate motive behind scientific research which are being and which will be undertaken by this institute. To make a mark, we need to generate new avenues, different than what others are already following in this field. Biotechnological advancement in any field may be adopted to facilitate our research and for obtaining set goals precisely at faster pace. Selfless and frank Intra-institutional and inter-institutional collaborative efforts to achieve desired targets swiftly for our farmer centric nation will be the core philosophy of this institute, in my view. This is required for fortifying our efforts towards obtaining food security and accessibility for
all as well as for generating healthy herds of our animals with elite qualities. I wish those who join hands to work in this institute and those who are entrusted with facilitating our growth, strengthen and improve our philosophy to make it a distinguished institution.
