Centre for Canadian Studies


The Centre for Canadian Studies was set up in March 1992 at the University of Delhi to promote Indo- Canadian academic collaboration among faculty members, research scholars and students, particularly in the field of multidisciplinary studies.The Centre has in its nineteen years of existence succeeded in its objectives. Every year it organizes a Lester Pearson lecture in the memory of the late Prime Minister of Canada. To promote interest among students in Canadian Studies, the Centre organises an annual Pierre Trudeau memorial debate. The Centre has a programme of sending students who are pursuing post graduate professional programmes in the University to Canada for a summer internship in collaboration with the Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute and the Canada-India Business Council. The Centre has a vibrant publication programme based on its workshops and seminars and six books have been published by the Centre so far. The Centre organizes workshops and seminars regularly for faculty members and research scholars and students. Based on the outstanding work of the Centre, UGC has upgraded the Centre to an 'Area Studies Programme Unit' since 2002.

Director: Prof. Enakshi Khular Sharma

Centre for Genetic Manipulation of Crop Plants


The Centre was set up to undertake research on genetic engineering and molecular breeding of oilseed brassicas. The Centre has received major financial support from the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) and its subsidiary the Mother Dairy and Fruit and Vegetable Pvt. Ltd. for the last 15 years. The Centre has developed two hybrids in oilseed mustard (Brassica juncea) DMH-1 (CMS/restorer based) and DMH-11 (based on transgenic technology). DMH-1 has been released by the ministry of Agriculture for commercial cultivation in the mustard growing areas of north-western India and DMH-11 is undergoing bio-safety tests with funding from DBT under its BIPP Programme. Other major activities of the Centre are research on genome analysis, gene tagging and "marker assisted" breeding in oilseed mustard and allied Brassica species.

Biotech Centre


With the biotechnology industry registering over 35% increase in the last few years, this industry is seen as one of the key sectors that will contribute to the socio-economic growth of the country. The Government of India has been supporting this industry since 1986 by establishing a strong network of research institutes and developing academic institutes to fulfil the human resource requirement. All these efforts have led to adequate research potential and activity in the area of biotechnology, which can be utilised for industrial and agricultural applications. Thus, it is of paramount importance to develop interfaces between universities and industry through the concept of technology parks to explore the availability of the work force and scientific expertise that exists in the country. In many cases, seminal discoveries of a fundamental nature in electronics and biotechnology have been converted into products of high importance and value through this concept. The facility developed at UDSC is a trendsetter for the development of university-industry interaction and technology business incubation with the government taking an active part in promoting the effectiveness of this strategy. The concept is to provide a world class infrastructure for life sciences research, accelerate commercialisation of new technologies, enable the biotech start ups to forge alliances with research institutions, academia, industries, foster and mentor the challenges in biotechnology investments and promote bio-cluster effects.

Centre for Genetically modified plants: Biosafety and Legal Issues

The mission of the centre is to provide training to:

  • Develop country researchers, government and industry professionals involved in the assessment and management of risks related to biotechnology-derived products and services
  • Individuals engaged in public policy, legal and ethical aspects or regulation of biotechnology
  • The next generation of biosafety trainers

The Research and Training would also incorporate the provisions of "Environment Protection Act" and Regulator constituted thereunder, viz; GEAC of the Department of Environment, Govt of India, and also the decisions of the Supreme Court of India. It would be unique in the sense that there is no centre like this in the whole country and we are taking the lead by setting up such a centre at UDSC.
