The institute of genetic chemistry and laboratory medicine was established in 2005.
It is a recent innovation in the Nigerian scientific landscape. It is a private non-governmental institution established to conduct high quality research and offer services of a sophisticated nature to the community.
He institute is created to mentor and develop human capacity in research in basic and applied sciences in genetics, chemistry, biomedical and ago-allied sciences. It will also consolidate and expand major existing efforts to combat the most serious threats to human health and overall well-being in Nigeria and the rest of the African region.
Mission & Vision
Our mission is to develop a centre of excellence in genetic chemistry and laboratory medicine where scientists would be able to pursue research activities at a high level at the frontier of knowledge studying the local genetic resources and upgrade the human capacity in skill and excellent science.
What we offer
We have of the past fifteen years developed scientific and research capacity in a multi-disciplinary environment that has promoted appropriate responses to Africa’s most pressing health problems; and to expand our collaboration with other advanced countries in addressing health priorities.
Potential for Development
The institute will sustain an environment of high caliber personnel of high productivity that will attract national and international researchers and secure a future for Africa’s promising new generation of scientists, from an integrated approach of basic and applied sciences, c clinical and public health perspective that focused on improving quality and promoting excellence in health research priorities and health care delivery.
