Organizational Structure

Research Division

The Research Division is responsible for generating new knowledge. It focuses on conducting research that has global scientific value but is often contextually relevant locally, particularly in Low and Middle-Income Countries. Our faculties have a strong track record of scientific contributions. We expect the researchers to pursue a more significant impact in the scientific community by pushing the frontiers of world knowledge in society via applications and academia by training the next generation of scientific leaders.
