Foundation of Deep Research
Shoolini University is built around the foundation of deep research and innovation capabilities. Our research model is unique to private universities in India. Founded by Dr. PK Khosla -- a retired Vice-Chancellor and Oxford Alumnus -- and mentored by scientists such as Dr. M.S Swaminathan, Shoolini University is today India’s top 25 Private University.
For this, a four-tier system for faculty development aided Shoolini’s citational research and academic accolades. That research is a strong pillar at Shoolini University is supported by the fact that today we have more than 400 patents and an H-index of 66. Scimago lists Shoolini at 536 and 32 amongst the world and Indian institutes respectively, based on research.
Located in the Himalayas, Shoolini University has the richest repository of herbal wealth for discovering biomolecules. Shoolini University, with a hundred patents on Himalayan plants, has the potential of becoming the link road between Indian and foreign universities keen to work on Himalayan flora. With this in mind, the research agenda at Shoolini University is focused on the economic and sustainable development of the Himalayan region.
