About Centre


Herbs and plants have been the basis of almost all traditional medicine systems throughout the world for thousands of years and continue to provide mankind with new remedies in the form of concocted and prepared herbal medicines. The WHO estimates that 80 percent population of Asian and African countries presently use herbal medicine for some aspect of primary healthcare. Therefore, herbal research is the need of the hour. In this direction, Department of Biotechnology at IMS Engineering College, Ghaziabad has taken the initiative to create a “Center of Excellence in Herbal Research”.
