The Department of Biochemistry, Faculty of Science was established in 2016 to train high level manpower and promote general and practical educational pursuit in Biochemical Sciences.
Activities in the Department commenced with the appointment of Prof I.F. Oruambo as the pioneer Head of Department, on 9th March 2016. The Department was set up to run undergraduate and postgraduate programmes leading to the award of Bachelor of Science (BSc.), Master of Science (MSc) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in Biochemistry and related disciplines.
Academic activities commenced in the 2016/2017 academic session with admission of the first set of undergraduate students. In 2017, the NUC Resource Verification Team visited the Department and approved its establishment to run degree programmes designed to expose students to various areas of specialization in Biochemistry such as Molecular Biology, Environmental Biochemistry, Nutrition, Toxicology, Enzymology, Industrial Biochemistry, Clinical/Medical Biochemistry, etc. Thus the knowledge of Biochemistry is uniquely and strategically positioned to play vital role in emerging fields of studies, such as Genomics, Proteomics, Metabolomics, Eco-toxicology, Human and Animal Toxicology, Medicine, Pharmacology and Biotechnology/Genetic Engineering which address human and environmental challenges. The Department also offers service courses in Biochemistry to other Departments in the University.
