The course will provide knowledge on selected topics (see below) that are not part of the regular AYUSH curriculum, but have wide applicability in biomedical diagnostics and research.
This course is completely online. Links to reading materials for each lecture will be provided. Sessions will be recorded and these along with lecture PPTs will be made available. No reference handbook or lecture notes will be provided.
