CUBRe aimed to:

  • Establish  a vibrant Bioinformatics Research outfit with the
    capacity to support established Bio-medical institutes and companies,
  • Position itself to take part in the era of personalized medicine
    based on the robust biomedical databases that will be established at CU,
  • To produce effective three high tech products for the control and
    final eradication of malaria starting with Nigeria,
  • Expand to support other tropical health issues and other important
    health issues in the West, and
  • Establish a vibrant bioinformatics research hub, recognized worldwide.

Based on the above, there are presently six divisions under CUBRe, namely: The Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3Africa) projects coordinating, Bioinformatics for Public Health, Computational Oncology
and Network Modelling and Entomology and Data Management. These divisions and their heads are as the following:
