About the Division

Bacteriology division is part of the Medical Microbiology and Immunology Department. The division provides a wide range of diagnostic services in bacteriology, mycobacteriology and molecular diagnosis through the diagnostic microbiology, surveillance and molecular epidemiology laboratories. The Bacteriology division has an Educational role by participating in teaching programs for undergraduate medical students as well as post-graduate medical students (master and doctor degrees). Lastly The Bacteriology division supports numerous lines of medical research.
