Zoology as a subject is multidisciplinary in nature, involving study of organisms and their genetic, morphological and physiological attributes, their surrounding environment, and their role in conservation of environment. Zoology is a combination of various disciplines such as Genetics, Physiology, Ecology, Developmental Biology, Microbiology, Parasitology, Entomology, Freshwater Biology, Fisheries, Wildlife etc. This subject has significant role in human resources development, food security, environmental conservation, sustainable development and ultimately in alleviation of poverty.
- AIM & OBJECTIVES
The main aim of developing and launching this program is to develop human resource in the discipline of Zoology to achieve sustainable development through appropriate education and training.

We are a friendly, independent practice based in the Department of Zoology for the Promotion of our students to higher education and state of the art research in house and in collaboration with national and international community.
The mission of Department of Zoology is to promote excellence in undergraduate, graduate and post graduate education and research. Our understanding of how animals function and interact has grown explosively in recent years. New biological insights flood the media and influence everything from medical care to global politics. We in the Zoology Department address major biological questions through our research: We study parasites, bacteria, viruses, cells, organisms and ecosystems to uncover mechanisms of infection. biology, Parasitology, Molecular biology, Physiology, Endocrinology, Developmental Biology, Genetics, Fisheries, Entomology and Virology etc.
The Department has outstanding laboratory facilities which are supported by the University, as well as by grants from the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan. Facilities include PCR, Electrophoresis, Ultra Freezer, analytical equipment and specialized equipment for Parasitology research, including microscopy and confocal microscope facilities.
The five faculty members in the Zoology Department from the divers field work closely with students to help them plan their programs of study, conduct research, and pursue special internship opportunities.
