This study programme of the University aims to provide an advanced understanding of the core concepts and topics of Biochemistry and their experimental basis. It is designed to equip the students with specialized knowledge and understanding of the underlying biochemical processes involved in core areas of current research, such as immunology, medical biochemistry, genetic engineering, physiology, bioenergetics and metabolism. It will provide our students with analytical and presentation skills, training in advanced scientific methods and practical research skills fundamental to mastery of the field.

The many and diverse applications of biochemistry include pharmacology, genetics, immunology, bioinformatics, environmental science, forensics, toxicological studies and food science. The career options for this exciting field of study are virtually endless and new areas are keep unfolding as novel applications continue to evolve.
