Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Jahangirnagar University, Savar, Dhaka 1342
The advancement in the field of life sciences has been propelled by the researches in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Biochemistry is the study of chemical processes within the cell, while molecular biology focuses on the molecular origin of life processes. The aim of these two disciplines is to provide an understanding of the molecular mechanisms of biological processes (life). To fulfill those aims, the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Jahangirnagar University was established in 1998 with Professor Dr. Abul Khair as its founder head. Over the time this department has matured to be one of the leading and most victorious departments in Bangladesh with energetic and enthusiastic faculties committed to excellence in teaching at all levels and a wide range of research interest which provides an essential platform for research in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Biotechnology, Genetics, Immunology, Microbiology, Neurosciences, Physiology, Pharmacology, Toxicology and Virology. Since its establishment, this department has been generating graduates of incredibly up to standard in the field of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology who are pursuing masters, doctoral and post doctoral research at home and abroad. Some of them are also having jobs in different countries of the world. The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology holds modernized curriculum for both academic and research purposes to meet the challenge of next decades. For that, classrooms are in good health with current schooling aids such as computers, multimedia projectors and audio-visual documentaries. This department has four research laboratories well equipped with modern laboratory tools for Master of Science (M.Sc), Master of Philosophy (M.Phil) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) students and two general laboratories for Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) students. Currently the Department offers B.Sc and M.Sc in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology as well as M.Phil and Ph.D degree programs. At this moment, the department has twenty eight faculties; among them 15 faculties already have Ph.D degree in different areas of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from internationally reputed universities. Presently thirteen faculties are in home and abroad for pursuing their Ph.D and Post Doc. program. Though the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology was a latecomer compared to its sister Departments of Pharmacy, Botany and Zoology in the Faculty of Biological Sciences, its delayed beginning would not be deduced from its position today. The department has already achieved research eminence, receives outstanding support by national and international funds and attracts many graduate students for doing their M.Phil and Ph.D from different part of this country. The global acknowledgment of the faculties and graduates has shed the department in a bright light compared to other department inside and outside of Bangladesh.
