Message from the Head of the Department

Research department at the Ziauddin University is a directorate to form central hub for all research activities by the faculty of health sciences (FHS). We participate in the policy making, governance, oversight and conduct of research process across ZU.

Our vision is to enhance the University’s research profile with successful contribution to health care and education through a major impact of MPhil, MD, MS and PhD projects in addition to faculty research. Therefore, we strive to develop resources and guidelines for our research scholars with a bench to bedside and bench to industry approach. In this regard there has been a phenomenal upgradation of the multidisciplinary high technology research laboratories with a striking uplift of structured postgraduate teaching and training programs.

The basic science research is focused on the investigation of etiopathogenetic mechanisms of diseases at molecular genetic level. Soon we would be launching the MPhil and PhD program in Molecular Medicine to promote a physician scientist relationship and invite the clinicians to work at par with international standards.

The clinical evidence-based research is promoted to update disease trends and risk factors generating data for preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic strategic planning. The projects are also designed for the determination of safety and effectiveness of medications, devices, diagnostic products and treatment protocols.

Conclusively we hope to pave the way to a brighter future with bold and novel solutions for national and global health challenges.
