Through Express news service

CHENNAI: The Central University of Tamil Nadu (CUTN) has decided to convert its School of Life Sciences to School of Biotechnology, on the lines available at Madurai Kamaraj University (MKU), to help students provide services counseling at various hospitals across the state.

Services will include tissue typing, HLA typing, and tissue cross-compatibility testing for organ transplant cases. The move is part of Vice Chancellor M Krishnan’s plans to create new departments that would help students meet industry needs and generate income for the university.

Krishnan, who was the former vice chancellor of MKU, said: “There is an urgent need for universities to provide advisory services to industry. This provides exposure for students, paves the way for research activities, and helps generate income to ensure sustainability. “

One example is the Human Leukocyte Antigen Lab in the Department of Immunology at MKU, as it performs crucial tissue cross-testing for organ transplants at much cheaper rates than private players. The Vice-Chancellor informed that CUTN has also obtained approval for the start of new courses such as MSc Pharmaceutical Sciences, MSc Biomedicine and MSc Geoinformatics from the next academic year.
