Brief History of the Department

The department of Haematology and Blood Transfusion Science began on November 1, 2023, as one of the pioneer departments of the then-newly created Faculty of Medical Laboratory Science, with Dr. Emmanuel. C. Onuoha serving as the pioneer acting head. It is a department that combines haematology with blood transfusion science.

The department is endowed with a crop of committed, dedicated, and motivated staff with rich and diverse industry and academic experiences, ready to shape future medical laboratory scientists who will excel in the practice of the profession, in the public and private sectors, locally and anywhere in the world.
