Biology, Chemistry and Molecular Genetics

This discipline is focused on deciphering life at the molecular level. Scientists in biomedical sciences will develop new tools and systems to study the basic mechanisms driving cellular function. Basic areas of research include synthesis of organic polymers and inorganic compound; Biochemistry, Chromosome Biology, Cell Biology, Developmental Biology, Genetics, Immunology and Cancer biology.

 

Current Projects:

1. Development of laboratory and industrial grade materials and reagents using local agricultural products.

2. Characterization of yeast from local sources.

3. Microbial culture of bacteria isolated from sites of injury.

4. Characterization and isolation of active ingredients in medicinal plants used in Ghana.
