The Biotech Institute (Zimbabwe) aims to be the pinnacle of innovative HEALTH research in Sub-saharan Africa. The region is devastated by many diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, Sepsis and Malaria due to lack of diagnostic capacity, inadequate research capacity, increased antimicrobial drug resistance and lack of expertise. The Biotech Institute aims to close these gaps using biomedical research focused primarily of molecular genomics and machine learning.
The Department for FOOD SECURITY aims to use biotechnology and molecular diagnostics to support sustainable agriculture and reduction of waste due to spoilage of harvest.
The Department for RESEARCH AND EDUCATION aims to ensure that Sub-saharan Africa has competent graduates to exploit state-of-the art innovative technologies to accelerate health care and economic development.
