Introduction of Department
Biotechnology is one of the most promising and fast-growing fields in world. Today’s biotechnology has revolutionaries Medical, Pharmaceutical, Industrial, Agricultural, and Environmental sectors around the globe and Commercial Biotech products are available these days.
While keeping the importance of biotechnology and future needs of Pakistan in this sector, The Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (HEC) approved the establishment of Gomal Center of Biochemistry and Biotechnology (GCBB) in Gomal University Dera Ismail Khan in 2006 and University launched its first batch admissions in Bs(4 years) in Biotechnology Programme in September 2006. The First batch of GCBB has successfully completed education, and our students serve in various biotechnology sectors.
Since its creation in 2006, the center aimed to provide a standard and diverse research and training environment to the students in various areas of Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Genetics, and Molecular Biology. The Center is currently admitting students for Bs (4 years) in Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Genetics, Molecular Biology, and M.Phil., Ph.D. in Biotechnology programs. The center has recently launched Diploma and certificate program in Medical Genetics, Molecular Diagnostics, and Clinical Biochemistry.
I am delighted to share some remarkable updates from the Center of Biochemistry and Biotechnology. Over the past year, our dedicated team of researchers, scientists, and professionals have made significant strides in advancing the frontiers of biochemistry and biotechnology.
These achievements stand as a testament to the dedication, expertise, and collaborative spirit of our team. None of this would have been possible without the invaluable support of our partners, sponsors, and stakeholders.
Looking ahead, we are excited about the potential for even greater advancements in the coming year. We remain steadfast in our commitment to pushing the boundaries of scientific discovery and driving positive impact on a global scale. Recently we have launched new programs, BS in Genetics, BS in Molecular Biology, Diploma in Medical Genetics, Diploma in Molecular Diagnostics, Diploma in Clinical Biochemistry, Certificate in Medical Genetics, and Certificate in Molecular Diagnostics.
