Research

Research has always been the forte of the Department of Molecular Medicine. Established in 2002 from a merger between the long standing Department of Biochemistry (formed in 1963) and the Biomedical Science Programme (launched in 1993), the Department currently has thirty-five members of the academic staff who are all scientists working in diverse areas of research. Equally dedicated to support the intensified quality research activities at the department are fifty-one (51) post-graduate students – 20 working for their PhD degrees and 31registered in the Master programme. The following is a brief description of the research activities of the academic staff of the Department of Molecular Medicine. Many of the projects described are carried out in collaboration with other researchers within the Faculty of Medicine.
