Biochemistry provides the foundation knowledge required for study in both the molecular and cellular aspects on modern biology. Thus an understanding of biochemical principles is a pre-requisite for successful advanced work in most areas of modern biology as well as in the pure and the applied aspects of most of the biological sciences.

Objectives

The objectives of the Biochemistry Department are to produce graduate who are not only equipped with the knowledge in all the modern aspects of Biochemistry, but are also aware of the particular needs of the environment (Nigeria, and by extension Africa) they find themselves.

The Biochemist, focusing on such needs, applies the knowledge of Biochemistry in solving problems that may arise from time to time. Thus, the degree programme lays emphasis on topics such as nutrition and food science, biochemistry of soil and microorganisms, plants and animals, biochemical aspects of diseases, biochemical basis of chemotherapy, including African traditional Medicine and human biochemical genetics.

The inclusion of research project on local biochemical topics as one of the compulsory courses in the final year of every biochemistry student is to achieve these objectives.
