Home About Us Academics
Histopathology laboratory is located in the south wing of UHS at the ground floor. This laboratory is well equipped with the facility to cater for training and research leading to higher qualifications such as Ph.D; M.Phil, M.Sc MLT & training for M.Sc Nursing. The department of pathology being an integral part of University sets out to be a centre of excellence in teaching, learning and research in pathological sciences.
Pathology is the branch of medical sciences which deals with the nature of disease, its causes and its detection. Although modern medicine has made great strides in understanding the causes of disease, we still have a considerable distance to go. The goal of research in the department of pathology is to extend our knowledge of the mechanisms of disease, especially at the molecular level. Such detailed information will hopefully lead to improved diagnosis, treatment, and eventually, prevention. Our mission is to produce Ph.Ds of international standard in collaboration with foreign universities. MOU with university of Texas has already been signed for exchange of graduate students and faculty members.
