Director's Message

It is my privilege to welcome you to the Biotechnology Research Institute (BRI), Bahir Dar University and invite you to explore the multidimensional facets of this Research Institute using the official website www.Bdu.et/Research/bri Institute. BRI was established in 2012 under the Research and Community Service Vice President Office of Bahir Dar University to foster cutting edge biotechnology research. Our vision is to see the institute being one of the ten premier biotechnology research Institutes in Africa by 2025 taking innovation, quality research and education, safety and ethics, team work, product/service oriented and excellence as a core value.

The Institute has already marked its presence as a leading research Institute. I believe, you will gain an insight about what makes this Institute rated among top of biotechnology research institutes of the country. Its strengths and standing are the committed staff, pertinent rich departments (Agricultural, biomedical, industrial and environmental biotechnology, capacity building, outreach services and technology transfer and data base management and bioinformatics) as well as the historical place in which the Institute is located, Bahir Dar the source of Blue Nile). The Institute is committed to equity and promoting talent without any prejudice. I strongly believe, you would also love to enjoy the proud privilege of becoming a part of this Institute.

We want you, whatever your starting point, to achieve the very best that you can and have a brilliant experience of our Institute. We will give you the opportunities to learn more research skills, explore means of technology transfer, make a contribution to our community as well as meet experienced research associates along the way.

I do hope that you decide to join us!!
