About the Molecular & Cell Biology Laboratory (MCBL)
The Molecular and Cell Biology Laboratory (MCBL) is an ultra-modern Research Laboratory located in the premises of the Biotechnology Unit of the Faculty of Science, University of Buea, South West Region of Cameroon. MCBL is the leading Laboratory in Molecular Biosciences in the University of Buea and Cameroon at large.
The mission of the laboratory is to train Masters and PhD students, offer services to the local community as well as carry out research on the development of potential sensitive/specific diagnostics for, and protective tools against parasitic diseases. Prominent diseases on which the laboratory focuses are: filarial infections (Onchocerciasis & Schistosomiasis), Malaria, and African swine fever. In parallel, the laboratory carries out research on the identification and characterization of novel mosquito-borne viruses in Cameroon.
These are the two main researchers in our team. We also have MSc and PhD students who are currently working on interesting research topics. See the Staff (Research Group) page for more information.
