The programme has now included environmental biochemistry with two elective options for graduating students in medical biochemistry and industrial biochemistry. The orientation of the programme emphasizes biochemical entrepreneurship and self-employment in environmental pollution consultancy, production of analytical kits, and production of industrial and analytical enzymes.

Paul University, biochemistry department has continued to uphold these ideals for the benefit of the discipline and programme. Incoming students are therefore expected to embrace these ideals in order to grow the future we all desire.
