PREAMBLE MARCHING AHEAD The Foundation for Life Sciences and Business Management was established in 2003-04 with the aim of working in areas of higher education and research, and helping set up entrepreneurial ventures in biotechnology and related fields. Prof PK Khosla, an internationally renowned academician and scientist, conceived the idea of integrating higher education and research during a visit to United Kingdom in 2003. He joined hands with renowned NRI, Mr Ramesh Mehan and Mr Satish Anand, a local businessman with vast experience in local infrastructure development, for this venture. The executive members of the Foundation are academicians and professionals with distinguished backgrounds. Prof P.K. Khosla, Ex-Vice Chancellor, HPAU, Palampur and former Advisor, Biotechnology, H.P.Government is at the helm of the management and functioning of the Foundation. The Foundation, with the support of visionary educationists, scientists, administrators who are on either its Executive and Advisory Boards or a part of the faculty, has very successfully set up the Shoolini Institute of Life Sciences and Business Management (SILB). The institute is affiliated to Himachal Pradesh University, Shimla and in the last six years, has attained several distinctions. It is one of the most sought after institutes for
higher education in biotechnology, microbiology, basic sciences (botany and chemistry), management and pharmaceutical sciences. The institute is duly recognized by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, GOI, New Delhi as a research institute; and was graded at 8th rank amongst private biotech institutes of the country (Biospectrum Survey - 2008). Its students have earned top positions in biotechnology, microbiology and botany during 2007-08 and 2008-09. In M.Sc.. Botany and Microbiology its students occupied six to seven positions among the top ten ranks of the University. With the vision of building a world-class university which combines academic & teaching pursuits with a research driven model - the Foundation put forward a proposal for setting up of a University of Biotechnology and Management Sciences to HP Government in 2005. The Shoolini University of Biotechnology and Management Sciences came into existence in September, 2009 under the auspices of the Foundation for Life Sciences and Business Management. The Foundation envisages significant investments to develop well equipped state of the art labs as well as to recruit and retain the best faculty through a challenging work environment, competitive
emoluments, and access to global information sources. Faculty members are expected to drive research through research grants from national and international donors. The research facilities will also serve as an incubator for the HP Biotechnology and Nanotechnology Parks being set up nearby. The Foundation is committed to UGC regulations (2003) for Private Universities and will also follow the guidelines of different regulatory bodies (AICTE, PCI, ICMR, ICAR, CSIR, etc.). Partnerships with industry, academia and the Government shall be the special focus of the University. These linkages will help in customizing education to the needs of the industry, leveraging the best available teaching resources, and participating in the quest for a better quality of life for the people in the region. Lastly, we believe that Himachal Pradesh is at the cross roads of capturing India's Biotech revolution - and that Shoolini University can play a significant role in helping achieve this objective. Developing Shoolini University into one of the best global universities is the prime mission of the Foundation.

Dear Students and Parents, Path breaking discoveries and inventions in physics and engineering in the twentieth century changed the way we live. The twenty first century will have similar changes -though this time these will be driven by innovation in biology and management sciences. It is no surprise that a career in these disciplines is now emerging as a preferred option at par with , or even more preferred than medicine or engineering. However, considering the rapid pace of innovation in these areas, a high degree of specialized knowledge is important to build a winning career .To make an impact in these fields, the latest learning and specialized domain expertise is the single most critical factor of success. Our vision behind Shoolini University of Biotechnology and Management Sciences is to provide students with an opportunity to learn from and interact with top-most experts in their field of expertise. We also endeavor to develop Shoolini University into an internationally recognized centre of research and education. The university's model is to blend expertise in biosciences with the principles and practices of engineering and business management to create
exceptionally skilled human resource for future leadership positions in academia and industry. I say with pride that some of India's and the world's most renowned academicians, scientists and business managers are already collaborating with us to make this vision a reality. To achieve these goals, we are proactively building faculty, infrastructure and developing an atmosphere where our students acquire cutting edge skills and domain knowledge. We also seek to give our students the appropriate environment to build on their creative and social aspirations. I am confident that with the support of senior faculty and our esteemed panel of advisors, this institution of higher learning shall become a prestigious part of the educational hub that Himachal's Hon'ble Chief Minister, Prof Prem Kumar Dhumal, has envisaged.

Here (in this world), there is nothing as pure (sublime) as knowledge.
I am a sincere believer of the philosophy - that knowledge alone can liberate and elevate mankind. Knowledge is the ultimate power that helps us to shake the shackles of ignorance and be free. As India makes strides of progress in this globally competitive environment, it is the quality of education that we will provide to the young generation of today that will give us the edge to keep ahead in all spheres. I also strongly believe that the focus of global development and research in the coming years will be the life sciences. Innovative ways of applying basic, engineering, management and computer sciences to this purpose should therefore be the thrust of higher education today as it will directly influence the preparedness of today's India for a better tomorrow.
Many years ago an artist and a philosopher named Nicholas Roerich made the Himalayas his home. His creations were a direct result of the inspiration that these mountains provided him. Almost a century ago he wrote in an article- "...only in Himalayas, exist the unique, unprecedented, calm conditions for achieving results." In my capacity as the first Chancellor of the Shoolini University, I express my gratitude to the Government and the people of Himachal Pradesh for giving us the opportunity to set up this life sciences and management sciences' university in the picturesque and inspirational settings of this beautiful state.
At Shoolini University, we aspire to translate our vision of providing world class education in biotechnology and management sciences and facilitating research and innovation in these areas. I invite you to be a stakeholder in this dream- as a student, a faculty member or just as a citizen of a progressive and forward thinking society- and turn it into reality.

Our English Language Programme The medium of teaching at Shoolini University is English, and the students are required to have minimum proficiency in English language for them to be more intuitive and effective in the class. Greater fluency in English will also enable the students to bag good jobs in the corporate sector. Keeping in view the poor standard of English of students, especially with rural/ semi urban background, Shoolini University has initiated a range of English language programmes that will build upon their current skills and help them to meet their personal and professional goals. The University has tied up with British Council for honing the communication skills of the students. The English language programmes offer an inspiring learning environment for the students to explore and take part in activities that complement the development of their English skills. Through classroom instruction and opportunities to engage outside of the classroom with other students at the university, you will build your skills and become more comfortable with the language.
Academic English courses provide intensive language teaching from beginner to advanced levels along with the development of academic skills for grasping the subject matter at the undergraduate or graduate level courses.
General English is a flexible, intensive language programme for beginner through advanced levels that is augmented with a wide range of optional modules, as well as social and cultural activities. This programme is designed for students who want to improve their ability to use English in everyday life or for professional purposes
