The Institute of Microbial Technology was established in January, 1984 in Chandigarh to undertake research and development activities in the broad area of Biotechnology. Set-up to be a forerunner in carrying out application oriented R&D, the Institute, eversince its inception has been formulating such research programmes which have a short-term objective of capability generation and a long-term perspective of generating newer leads in the critical areas of its working, viz., molecular biology, protein engineering, fermentation technology etc.

Most of the research programmes deal with the application of newer tools of molecular biology and genetic engineering to develop new technologies or improve upon the existing ones vital to our national needs.

The Institute covers a total area of about 45 acres of which 22 acres are with the laboratory and the rest is for the residential area for the scientists and the staff. The Institute comprises 5 buildings; the main laboratory block including library, MTCC & auditorium, the Biochemical Engineering Research and Process Development block, Workshop and Stores block, the Animal House and the Cafeteria. The laboratories are having highly functional design and offer large, air conditioned, clean re- search areas to all the scientists.
the Institute of Microbial Technology (IMTECH) is one amongst the 38 national laboratories of the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR) and is its youngest laboratory. Set-up to be a fore-runner in the area of Biotechnology, the Institute occupies an area of about 47 acres, of which the labs cover 22 acres and the residential campus, 25 acres. The Institute has a built up area of about 3.60 lakh sq. ft., is spread over five main buildings, the main R&D block (~2.00 lakhs sq. ft.), Fermentation block (~0.50 lakhs sq. Ft.), Animal House (~0.30 lakhs sq. ft.), Workshop, Stores and Services area (~0.50 lakhs sq. ft.), and Cafeteria (~0.10 lakhs sq. ft.). The Institute's primary asset is a team of 50 highly motivated young scientists, more than two thirds of whom are Ph.D.s with many having several years of training in world-renowned laboratories. Supported by more than 300 well-trained technicians and graduate students, these scientists are engaged in basic and application-oriented research.
