Vision - To be a Pan-African institute of excellence in biomedical sciences, technologies, and tertiary education towards the provision of healthcare solutions for Africa.
Education & Training
Genomics & Bioinformatics
DMPK & BAC
DNA Testing Centre
We focus on postgraduate training at MSc and PhD levels. Our Continuing Professional Education through diplomas, courses, workshops, seminars, conferences and annual schools aims at bridging university education with industry’s skills needs.
We conduct genomic research in the fields of pharmacogenomics and HIV &TB drug resistance. Our molecular biology platforms include PCR, RT-PCR and DNA sequencers. We have established a Biobank facility to support our genomic studies. Bioinformatics platform includes tools such as the E-Biokit.
We have established in silico, in vitro, and in vivo system for the study of how the body handles drugs with respect to their absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME). Such studies require robust analysis of the drugs and their products. Towards this, we have established expertise in HPLC and LCMSMS bioanalysis.
AiBST is the first and currently only institute with an approved laboratory to conduct DNA testing. It was approved by the Medical Laboratory and Clinical Scientist Council of Zimbabwe. With its technology platform of PCR, RT-PCR and DNA sequencers, it can offer numerous DNA tests such as paternity test and human identification (HID) for forensic investigations.
