Department of Biotechnology


Biotechnology is the application of biological organisms, systems or processes to produce substances or products useful to mankind. The current biotechnology grew out of advances in biological sciences such as genetics, microbiology, and biochemistry and information technology.

Teaching and research in the field of biotechnology must be strengthened in Pakistan not only to assimilate the progress made in the world but also to undertake research for solving our own specific problems. This would be possible only by producing well-trained scientific manpower in our country. It is therefore urgently required to incorporate well-planned academic programs in biotechnology in our education system.

Realizing the importance of strengthening teaching and research in this field, Lahore College for Women University, Lahore has established a state of the art Biotechnology department to cater the challenges of 21st century. This department will hopefully help in producing well-trained professionals who shall be instrumental in establishing and developing this crucial science and technology in Pakistan. Therefore, a great deal of attention must be paid to human resources and infrastructure development. We try to provide our students as well as faculty members most intellectually stimulating environment for their academics and research. We aim to work hard to do potential research in the field of Biotechnology.
