Horizon campus opens new lab.

It is with great pride and delight that we inform you of the unveiling of our new Biosciences Research Laboratory (BRL) at the Horizon Campus, Faculty of Science!
Over the last couple of years the Faculty of Science has been expanding and we offer BSc. (Hons) and Diploma courses in Biotechnology in collaboration with Nilai University, Malaysia. More recently, we have partnered with Arkansas State University, USA, offering BSc in Biotechnology which is a significant milestone in the short history of our Faculty!
Both international organisations, along with Horizon Campus, have gained the required recognition and accreditations by the Ministry of Higher Education and the University Grants Commission (UGC), respectively. Furthermore, Horizon Campus and Nilai University are both Members of Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU).
These accreditations enable Horizon Campus to recruit some of the very best talent, both locally and internationally, to its faculties thus nurturing the youth of Sri Lanka to excel in the field of Biotechnology in order to face the global challenges.
Furthermore, this productive partnership among students, staff and the Managementat all universities anchor the mission to expand and disseminate knowledge in the field of Biotechnology for the empowerment of socio-economic development of the country.
As we evolve, asa Faculty and organisation, it is only natural that we as embrace these changes and adapt to it. This, the opening of the BRL, is an monumental step in moving from a basic experimental laboratory to a far superior research laboratory. This facility is equipped with a multitude of research facilities to cater to the needs of our students as they embark on their own research projects. We have the resources to conduct research in the fields of Molecular Biology, Immunology,Microbiology, Forensic Sciences and Diagnostics Techniques.
With the establishment of the BRL it is a very exciting time for both faculty and students as we look to the horizon and venture in to new territory.
