About University of Trans-Disciplinary Health Sciences and Technology (TDU):

TDU was established as an innovation centered University focused on designing and delivering research, outreach and education focused on social transformation aligned to emerging and futuristic needs. A first of its kind in India, TDU’s uniqueness stems from the fact that while the University itself has core strength in Ayurveda-Biology, Clinical medicine, Medicinal plants systematics, Plant Genomics, Data Sciences, Local Health Traditions, Theoretical Foundations of Ayurveda, Traditional Knowledge informatics and Manuscriptology, it has institutional academic relationships with outstanding knowledge partners in fields like Design (Srishti), Ecology and Environment (ATREE), Bioinformatics (IBAB), Conservation of Coastal, Marine and Mountain Ecosystems (Dakshin Foundation), Biological Sciences (NCBS-TIFR), Stem Cell Biology (InStem), Inter-disciplinary Studies (NIAS), Cinema (Suchitra), Public health (IPH), Education and Pedagogy (Poorna), Medical Research (SJRI), and Policy Studies (Takshashila). Thus, the TDU ecosystem has the capacity to offer programmes that combine subjects related to natural and social sciences, design, cinema, education, health sciences, conservation and fine arts.
