Centre for Bio Separation Technology (CBST)

The Center for Bioseparation Technology (CBST) was created at VIT University with Prof. M.A. Vijayalakshmi under the "High priority Research Area" funded by Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India. She was identified by the Indian Government to come back from France after more than 30 years of service at Universite de Technologie Compiegne (UTC), France, to steer this prestigious center. The Center was...

The Advanced Centre for Bio Separation Technology (CBST) is dedicated to the field of separation sciences and molecular interactions. It has a unique combination of being innovative and highly intellectual with keen interest in translation.


The center has an extensive National and International Networks and Collaborative Programmes in terms of Students/ Junior & Senior Scientists exchange and trainings. As such about 90 persons from 36 different countries have thus benefited from this type of exchange/ training programmes for periods varying from one month to one year. Under different exchange programmes, the faculty and students went to many different research labs at the national and international level for short term and long term trainings. The center has already sent five VIT University members to UTC, France and two more members to USA for different training programmes under the mentorship of Prof. M.A. Vijayalakshmi.
