About Department

I wholeheartedly welcome all stakeholders, staff and students, old or new to the Department of Biochemistry. The Department of Biochemistry came into being in 1993 and has over the years grown tremendously. The Department is endowed with many professors and lecturers in various areas of specialization. These erudite scholars are well-grounded in impacting biochemistry principles, innovative practical sections in both undergraduate and postgraduate students. The laboratories are well-equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and apparatus. No wonder the Department was accorded full accreditation by the National University Commission (NUC) (2015-2020). This has provided the platform for all-round training of our stale, fresh and prospective students. The employment of our outputs in both the private and public sectors of the economy attest to this assertion. This handbook contains relevant information required for the students through fare in their sojourns in the Department of Biochemistry. Besides, the handbook contains the course contents and workloads per semester/session. Therefore, students are enjoined to make careful read so as to adhere to the rules and regulations. May you all have a hitch-free and rewarding experience in the Department of Biochemistry. Yours in the journey Professor Fidelis Ifeakachuku Achuba Head of Department
