Kalasalingam Academy of Research and Education

Research Facilities

INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH CENTER (IRC), a Research Facility of international standards, was established in 2014 to carry out advanced research in the broad areas of materials science, energy and computing. In the first phase, a center focusing on research in the areas of materials including nanomaterials was established at a cost of Rs. 5 crores. Scientists with post-doctoral research experience from leading universities abroad were recruited for establishing their research in advanced areas of material science. Training programs and workshops are being organized regularly for research scholars in the focused areas of materials characterization and analysis.

Major Facilities in IRC includes:

Multifunction Materials Research Laboratory
Nanomaterials
Laboratory
Composite Materials
Laboratory
Biocomposite Materials
Laboratory
Supramolecular Research
Laboratory
Quantum Mechanics
Laboratory

IRC also houses an Advanced Instrumentation Facility with state-of-the-art equipment for characterization of materials. The equipment include:

Summer Students Visiting
Internship Programme

The Kalasalingam-Summer Student’s Visiting Internship Program (SSVIP) of one month with stipend is designed to enhance awareness and interest in high quality academic research among young Engineering, Sciences and Technology students through a goal-oriented summer mini project undertaken at the Kalasalingam Academy of Research and Education, Krishnankoil. The selected participants will work on a specific project in association with the faculty members and scientists of various Research Centres in Kalasalingam Academy of Research and Education. At the end of the programme, each student presents a short seminar and submits a report on the project carried out. The outcome of their research will be published as a research paper if the results are interesting and worthy.

Centre for BioTechnology

The Center for Biotechnology at Kalasalingam Academy of Research and Education (KARE) is the research arm of the Department of Biotechnology, which was established in the year 2002. The centre carries out research in diverse fields of biotechnology that have an impact on human welfare. Currently, research at the Center for Biotechnology focuses on Infectious and Inflammatory Diseases, Bioprocess Engineering, Neurophysiology, Plant Biotechnology, Environmental Engineering and Animal Biotechnology. The centre offers a doctoral program in Biotechnology. The vision of the centre for the next ten years is to transform the centre into a world-class research hub. The following are the plans for the next decade.

  • To establish at least two centres of excellence to carry out advanced studies
  • To publish at least 10 peer-reviewed articles per year in high-impact journals
  • To establish research collaborations with Indian and overseas partners
  • To develop need-based technologies for transfer to industries

Research Groups

  • Infectious and inflammatory diseases
  • Plant Virology and Plant Genetic Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering and Biotechnology
  • Biocatalysis and Bioprocess Engineering
  • Neurophysiology
  • Animal Biotechnology
