Dear students:

Welcome to the website of the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Medical Sciences (UNIMED), Ondo City; home of the first specialized medical university in Nigeria. It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Department of Biological Sciences family. Our Department was created in 2015  at the inception of UNIMED to train a new generation of biologists the fundamentals of science through cutting-edge multidisciplinary teaching and research approaches. The programs offered in the Department include Animal and Environmental Biology, Microbiology, and Plant Biology and Biotechnology.

 

Although the graduates from these programs receive different degrees, our faculty, together with students, have a fantastic relationship which culminates in the rapid growth and transformation of our Department. One example is the recent Seeding Labs Equipment Access grant award received in our Department. It was a collective effort of all lecturers in the Department. The multidisciplinary nature and flavor of our discipline give our students an edge over their contemporaries as they are exposed to other fields of Biological Sciences other than their primary subject.

 

We prepare our students for exciting careers in all branches of microbiology, environmental biology and toxicology, molecular biology and parasitology, aquaculture and Hydrobiology, biotechnology, and ethnobotany. Our students are provided with adequate knowledge and laboratory skills to tackle our society’s pertinent challenges.

 

With our experienced and approachable lecturers, we assure you of world-class education in the Biological Sciences at UNIMED. Welcome and enjoy your stay at Nigerian premier University of Medical Sciences.

Senior Lecturer and Acting Head, Department of Biological Sciences



OBJECTIVES

The specific learning objectives that all Biological Science Majors are expected to know at graduation are the:

1. Ability to read, understand, and critically interpret the primary biological

and biomedical literature in his/her area of interest.

2. Basic sciences (i.e., mathematics, statistics, physics, general and organic

chemistry) necessary for upper-level biological science coursework.

3. Terminology, principles and ability to explain the fundamental biomedical

processes of metabolism, homeostasis, reproduction, development, and

genetics, and the relationships between form and function of biological

structures at the molecular, cellular, organismal, population, and ecosystem levels of the biological hierarchy.

4. Fundamental methods, procedures, and techniques for conducting

experimental and empirical research.

5. Standards for evaluating biological/medical research and assessing the validity of research results.

6. The student will be able to explain the importance of biodiversity at the genetic, organismal, community, and global scales.
