The department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) was founded with a noble goal: to develop for competitive professionals with excellent leadership, communication and teamwork skills who can contribute to an exceptional talent pool in nationally and also internationally. The department was established in 2013 and starts its journey with the worthy leadership of its founder Chairman Professor Dr. Md. Alauddin and academic activities began from the session 2013-2014. The honorable Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr. Md. Alauddin inaugurated BMB department through an orientation program on 3rd May 2014 with newly admitted students.
Department of BMB offers Bachelor of Science (Honors) degree program for a period of 04 academic years (8 semesters). Total number of credits is 160 including 31 credits for laboratory course. The courses are designed thorough revision of leading national and foreign universities so that students can earn a broad background about BMB. The course curriculum will help students in planning carriers in laboratory research or further training in graduate studies in the field of biological sciences.

They are conducting research on cellulase enzymes from phytophagous insects for bio-fuel production, health effects of heavy metal toxicity, nutritional analyical and molecular approaches.
At present, the department has nine faculty members, one Assistant Registrar, one computer operator, two office Attendants and one lab Attendant. Currently, five academic sessions of undergraduate levels are running in this department with 156 students. From the very beginning, the department is trying its level best to establish laboratory facilities and procure sophisticated equipment. For conducting practical classes, the department has two Biochemistry Labs which are equipped with modern equipment and essential chemicals. The department has developed a seminar library with essential books which are available for students.
Though it is a newly born department but it is running its program with success and dedication. All the faculties are trying hard to develop the academic activities at international standards. The department has strong wishes to offer a graduate program leading to Master of Sciences (MS), M. Phil and PhD in different branches of BMB in the future. Moreover, the department is going to organize seminar, symposium, conference, and workshops.
