The department provides outstanding career opportunities for faculties and first-rated training facilities and environment for undergraduate and graduate students.
The biochemistry and molecular biology are central to biomedical sciences and biotechnology. Biochemists and molecular biologists study the structure and function of components of living cells, as a basis for understanding biological and physiological processes. Their discoveries and understanding of how molecules interact have revolutionized approaches to treating diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and influenza improved our use of chemicals in agriculture and developed novel biotechnologies all aimed at improving the quality of life.
The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is a research department with key strengths in molecular biology, genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, microbiology, and immunology. Currently, the department has seventeen (17) teachers and providing a dynamic environment that attracts students all over Bangladesh. The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Shahjalal University of Science and Technology is one of the prominent departments in Bangladesh. We are located in the extension of the Academic Building-A of the University campus. We invite you to browse our website and welcome inquiries from students interested in pursuing our undergraduate and graduate studies as well as research training.
