About Us

Welcome to Department of Biological Sciences.

The Department of Biological Sciences evolved from the merger of two of the oldest departments in the Faculty of Science: the Department of Botany, founded in 1949 and the Department of Zoology, founded in 1950.  We have come a long way since then, and committed to provide the best education and research opportunities to our students and to equip them with critical thinking, analytical and communication skills to be future-ready for the new economy. DBS also anchors a vibrant, diverse and dynamic research community that took the lead in addressing key life science questions in the areas of Human Health, Climate Change and Food Security.
