The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) has started its journey as an essential area of knowledge in understanding the chemical & molecular basis of life. At the beginning, Biochemistry was regarded as a research-oriented subject to find out the cause of different types of diseases both of plant and animal including human and to propose the biochemical solution of that diseases. Gradually it turns into an applied science and it proved its application in food and agriculture, disease diagnosis, fermentation industries and in pharmaceutical research. But with the rapid development of Molecular Biology research from the seventies of last century, the Biochemists and Molecular Biologists have been able not only to understand the life process but to change it according to need. In fact, the knowledge of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biotechnology proved its tremendous impact on the health, agriculture, food, forensic science and pharmaceuticals which contribute to the economic development of the country. But in Bangladesh, BMB departments were in few public universities namely Dhaka, Rajshahi, Jahangirnagar, Mymensingh Agriculture University, and Chittagong University till 2010. Understanding the immense importance of this subject and its growing demand both at home and abroad it seemed practically necessary to generate more graduate in the country. As a result, the department of BMB was opened in SUST in 2010 and by the next year (in 2011) started its academic activities with 4 teachers and 20 students.
