History of the Center

The present University administration responded to the call for the introduction of the Biotechnology Center in 2012. The initial process began under the former DVC (Academics) Prof. M. Y. Bello but was later continued and completed by a committee under Prof. Hafiz Abubakar MFR, then HOD, Department of Biochemistry. The Center for Biotechnology Research (CBR-BUK) was then formally established with Professor Hafiz Abubakar MFR as Director, after recommendation of the senate and approval of the University Council.
