Some of the areas of research include: cell signaling in normal and in cancer cells, alternate remedies for treatment of chronic disease recombinant DNA technologies, metabolic disorders, genetic disorders, agri-technology, importance of metals, purification and functional characterization of proteins of economic importance related problems in areas of  molecular endocrinology, clinical biochemistry and medical microbiology.


In this period of intense scientific activity it has become mandatory that Institutions of Higher Education establish centers for delivery of curricula and for undertaking advanced research. The University of Lahore taking cognizance of this imperative has set up facilities for teaching and research under the umbrella of Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology. The Institute covers such diverse fields as Biochemistry, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Biotechnology and Environmental Science. It is providing trained manpower who could contribute to the economic development of the country.
