KLE University is in the process of establishing a premier research center in the name of Honorable Chancellor – “DR PRABHAKAR KORE BASIC SCIENCE RESEARCH CENTER”.
The new research center with a built-up area of 10, 000 sq ft shall host three labs that engage in basic research with state-of-the- art facilities for staff and research scholars. The research center will focus on key areas of Molecular biology (including stem cell research), Medical microbiology, Pharmaceutical analysis and Natural product research. All these areas shall adopt fundamental concepts and application based research with tangible outcomes. In addition, the centre envisages to gear-up the research capacity through a series of highly focused workshops that will create critical pool of scientists, thus, providing the edge to keep up with current research and also engage with international Universities on an equal platform. The research center has been installed with modern analytical instruments and equipment’s such as Ultra-high pressure liquid chromatograph (UHPLC) for high resolution fast chromatography, latest generation Peltier based thermal cycling PCR system for Gene expression analysis, high magnification digital imaging inverted microscope and Gel electrophoresis systems. In addition, there are other associated high-end analytical instruments that are in place to set the wheels of basic research in motion.
