In keeping with the Mission of the National University of Medical Sciences, the Department of Biological Sciences strives for a transformative learning experience of our students by endorsing active learning, scientific reasoning, and critical thinking. We maintain a rigorous academic environment in which the potential of every student can be realized. A culture of team building, and scientific collaboration is promoted through small group learning that encourages active participation and interaction of students with faculty and fellow classmates. We believe in experiential learning that integrates theoretical knowledge with hands-on practical application and skills. A 33,000 sq. ft. research laboratory at the NUMS Institute of Advanced Studies and Research (NIASR) being set up at Rawalpindi will support our student research. Although a new University, we already have a faculty of over 35 PhDs in various domains of Biological Sciences, each with a rich research background and experience, dedicating to providing mentorship for our students for a successful professional career for life after NUMS.
I welcome you to be a part of the NUMS learning experience at the Department of Biological Sciences.
