Welcome to the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Busitema University Faculty of Health Sciences. We are a team of more than 7 faculty members who work together with a dedicated research and professional staff as well as undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate trainees to advance our scientific, educational and service goals. We are, however, currently working below the required staff establishment and the need for recruitment of more staff members to fill the gaps remains paramount.
