Biochemistry is a vibrant & dynamic discipline. It is related to almost all the life sciences. Without biochemistry background & knowledge, a thorough understanding of health & well being is not possible. As it has developed into a major field with huge range of applications. Those who acquire a sound knowledge of biochemistry can tackle the central concerns of the biomedical sciences to understand and maintain the health and cure from diseases.
The Institute of Biochemistry, University of Sindh, was established in August 1999 with the multiple purpose of fulfilling research in the areas of Biochemistry, Nutrition & Foof Technology, Clinical Biochemistry, Bioanalytical Techniques and Molecular Biology.
All the faculty members are well-qualified & are fully committed towards creating a driving intellectual curiosity in students. Excellent student teacher ratio provides ample opportunity for students to interact with the facutly. Students find that faculty and staff is not only accessible, but is committed to their progress.
The Institute is presently offering following degree Programs: –
- BS Degree in Biochemistry (08-Semester)
- BS Degree in Nutrition and Food Technology (08-Semester)
- M.Sc Degree in Biochemistry (04-Semester)
- One Year Diploma in Food Analysis (02-Semester)
- M.Phil MS Degree in Biochemistry (04-Semester)
- Ph.D Degree in Biochemistry
The Biochemistry programs at University of Sindh are also an excellent option for students majoring in Biological Sciences, such as, Physiology, Microbiology, Psychology, etc. opt it as a minor subject. The Institute has well developed Research Laboratories in the field of Clinical Diagnosis, Nutrition & Food Technology, Molecular Biology and Bioanalytical Research. Where techniques like Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometry (FTIR), Fraction collector, Electrophoresis, flame Photometry, High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Micro-lab, etc are being performed actively. In addition, the Diagnostic & research laboratory also serves to the Employees of the University and the outdoor patients at Dispensary of the Sindh University.
The mission of the Institute includes to teach and prepare undergraduate students for position of leadership in the new biology and to equip them to approach the challenging problems in life science that will continue to develop in the following decades.
A degree in Biochemistry will give the tools to succeed in the 21st century. Our slogan is Proud to be Biochemist. We explore secrets of life.
