Mission
Our mission is to provide postgraduate students with the opportunity for exploration in biological sciences. This is done through rigorous course work and intimately mentored students by experienced faculty. We are keen to develop each student's ability to acquire and critically interpret knowledge of basic facts and theories in biology. The ultimate goal is to produce educators and scientists who could provide better services in human health, education, and environment.
