CENTRE FOR ADVANCED MEDICAL RESEARCH & TRAINING IN BRIEF
The Centre for Advanced Medical Research and Training (CAMRET) seeks to advance knowledge in the fields of Biotechnology and Biomedical Sciences. The Center is involved in cutting-edge cross disciplinary research in drug discovery, immunotherapeutics and vaccine development against infectious diseases and cancer. Epigenetics and nutrigenomics research is also carried out in the Centre.Established in 2017 through the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND) special intervention fund, CAMRET is situated in the Teaching Hospital Campus of Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto. It is administered by a Coordinator and several Research Associates that are appointed by the Vice Chancellor from relevant Departments of the University. The Centre is divided into laboratories that house state-of-the-art molecular biology equipment, which are directly supervised by research assistants. It serves the research needs of the university staff, students and visitors
CAMRET aspires to be will be one of the most significant developments in Nigerian biomedical science in recent times with the goal to understand the basic biology underlying human health, driving forward better treatment and prevention of the most significant diseases affecting people today Transfer and develop the newest medical, agricultural, and environmental biotechnologies. Provide settings that encourage creativity and use biotechnology to prevent, diagnose, and cure common problems in the society.
CAMRET vision is to initiate and conduct top quality basic and applied research in the health and life sciences using molecular tools, in support of the University objectives. We will strive to develop and sustain a multidisciplinary, talented, and motivated research team; and ensure the transfer of our knowledge, science, and technology to all sectors in the service of humanity.
