Amity Patna Concluding Ceremony - 2015

The fifth Concluding ceremony 2015 of BBA and MBA outgoing batches (2012-15 and 2013-15) took place at Amity Global Business School, Patna campus on 3rd June 2015.

The function got underway from 5:00 PM amidst much fanfare. Present at the occasion were, the chief guest, Hon’ble Shri. U.Ramachandran Sir (Senior VP, Amity Education Group), accompanied by The Dean of AGBS Patna Campus, Dr. Vivekanand Pandey and Assistant Dean, Prof. Siddhartha Shankar, the faculty members, members of the Marketing, IT, Library, Administration department and the guests for the evening, the outgoing students of BBA and MBA passing out semesters.

The event started with the welcome speech by the Dean,Dr. Vivekanand Pandey and followed by seeking the sincere blessings from our respected Founder President, Dr. Ashok K. Chauhan, Honorable President, Dr. Atul Chauhan, Mr. U.Ramachandran, Senior Vice President & Head AGBS National Campuses & Mr.Gauravh Gupta, DGM Marketing. The Dean highlighted upon the fact that a student should blend academic knowledge with righteous karma so as to emerge as a wholesome personality. The Chief Guest, our beloved U.Ramachandran Sir gave the success mantra to the students from his own experiences which he gathered through the course of his professional journey and asked the students to be proud of the Amity group.

After the speech, the much awaited moment for the students arrived. It was the moment to give recognition to the students for the rigor and toil which they undertook for three and two years respectively for successfully completing their BBA and MBA programmes. It was the moment for the awards, a moment of glory for any pursuer of academics. Various awards in the category of Academic, Non academic and Area merit were also conferred upon along with the salvers and citations awards.

Finally the event came to a close with vote of thanks being proposed by Prof. Shubhadeep Chakraborty. A dinner get together was hoisted wherein the esteemed guests, students along with their parents participated.

Guest lecture on "Carrier Proteins "organized by Amity Institute of Biotechnology

Guest lecture on "Carrier Proteins "organized by Amity Institute of Biotechnology

Amity Institute of Biotechnology organized a lecture on carrier proteins: current understanding about structure and function on 7th April 2016 by Prof. M R N Murthy from Molecular Biophysics Unit (MBU), Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru

He talked about three protein structures which turned out serendipitously as carrier proteins. One of the proteins his lab solved was fatty acid carrying protein. What Prof. Murthy also stressed on was the difficulty in annotating the proteins based on sequence homology alone. He went on to assert his views by discussing about the structures of two "Universal Stress Proteins" (USPs), YnaF and YdaA from Salmonella typhimurium. Based on structural analysis his lab ascertained that USPs appear to perform several distinct functions such as ATP hydrolysis, altering membrane properties and chloride sensing.
Overall session was quite interactive and students were excited to meet Prof Murthy.

Prof. Murthy, along with Professor M. Vijayan, established X-ray diffraction facility at the Molecular Biophysics Unit, which served as the national nucleus for crystallographic work in the initial decade of such structural work in India.  Murthy developed methods for the structure determination and analyses of viruses that were computationally efficient and less demanding of resources, writing several programs and adopting a number of other available programs to smaller computing machines. His success in these endeavors is reflected in the successful conclusion of several structural studies on virus particles, which are the only such studies performed in the twentieth century in the third world.
Session ended with vote of thanks.
