Welcome to the School of Biological Science


School of Biological Sciences (SOBS) Constitutes various fields of coordinated studies aimed at harvesting the natural biological capabilities of living organisms. The School of Biological Sciences comprises of Department of Biochemistry that studies the natural constitution of living matter and maintenance of living of life in organisms, department of Biotechnology that focuses in developing and improving products and processes made from or for living systems and department of microbiology that studies microorganism and their applications and implications in health and the environment. Department of Forensic Science focuses on the deployment of scientific investigations and other logical methodologies in settling disputes and solving crimes with tasks involving collection and preservation of materials (such as trace/contact evidence from crime scenes), laboratory analysis of samples, accurate interpretation of results and testifying as an expert witness in a court of law.
