Biochemistry is a central discipline to all Branches of Biology/ Life Sciences. It deals with the chemical nature, function, structure, energetic and pathways of synthesis and degradation of simple to complex biological and/or cellular molecules to understand the various aspects of cellular and molecular functions in development, health and disease with applications in Biotechnology, Microbiology and Medicine. Biochemistry at FLS is one of the most vibrant and visible faculty among the Pakistani Universities because of its location, the competition for admission in the PhD, MS and BS Programmes. FLS has ideal students to the faculty ratio, teaching experience of the faculty, publications, extra research grants/support the faculty generates from National and International Organizations and in terms of infrastructural facilities. In addition, the faculties are able to fortify collaboration in the new and interdisciplinary research areas such as Nano-Biology, Medical Biotechnology, and Stem Cell Biology etc.
