The Institute covers these seven broad disciplines:
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.
This discipline is involved in new material design, tools and system optimization. Some areas of research interest include hydrogels, chemical modifications, cosmic simulations and nanoparticles. The discipline is also involved in tissue engineering and imaging such as MRI and crystallography.
This discipline is focused on data modeling and simulations. Proficiency in modeling tools such as Matlab, Mathematica, SAS and programming languages such as python, perl and R in modeling and simulations will be encouraged and readily available to researchers and their team members. In addition, these tools will be used in interdisciplinary fields involving other fields such Biology, Economics, Finance and Policy Developments.
It is the goal of this discipline to promote Ghanaian and African culture. We encourage research in promoting African culture, sociology and governance. In-depth assessment of African history is essential developing solutions unique to the continent. Aspect of African culture we would explore include dance, music, language and religion. Other aspects of governance the discipline will delve more into include common law and ethnic laws. Finally, vital life processes such as naming ceremonies, puberty rites, marriage and death ceremonies and their impact on African virtues and foundations will be probed.
This discipline encompasses the commercialization of natural resources and the sustainable usage of these resources. Major areas of research include:
- Improve and develop new Agricultural techniques.
- Assess the mining industry for sustainable ecosystem
- Business and economic research and think-tank for economic development of the continent.
Our three major goals as a discipline are:
- promote public health awareness.
- research into the medical and clinical sciences.
- and develop policies to promote health and longevity.
The primary aim of this discipline is to build capacity to develop systems, techniques and machinery to explore space beyond our imagination. In it's infancy, we would train personnel while building facilities. Areas of interest include star formation, solar and lunar periods and
