Meet the Dean
Welcome to Faculty of Science webpage. If you are on this page, it means you are interested to know more about Biosciences at AIU. If you are considering a degree that covers Biology or Health Science, then this is the right place.
AIU Faculty of Science provides instruction in the Biosciences with majors in the areas of Biology and Public Health. For those interested in Medicine, Dentistry or Bio-Engineering we have a strong foundational program that is broad enough to cover the most commonly required courses for Pre-Med and Pre-Dentistry and thus prepares you for transfer to colleges and universities where one can pursue those studies further. We also prepare you to become a bio-medical researcher, research & development laboratory technician, and Biology teacher. Our new major in Public Health is geared towards those who are interested in community health rather than clinical practice careers. This major prepares you for community health work such as with government departments, private institutions, and non-governmental organizations. You can become health educators, environmental health practitioners or epidemiologists. These are just some of the career paths available.
Our faculty, staff and students are a diverse and multicultural group who will make your educational and social experience exceptional. I am confident that you will enjoy your time at AIU and obtain a wonderful, world-class education with us. Along with my faculty and staff, I am committed to ensuring every student’s experience is a positive and fulfilling one.
I invite you to browse our website, explore our academic offerings get in touch. We would also love for you to come to our campus and meet with me, my faculty or even students to answer any of your questions. Let us know how we at AIU Faculty of Science can help you achieve your dreams.

Mr Elvin Walemba earned his BSc Zoology from the University of Eastern Africa, Baraton, Kenya, MSc by Research at the University of Bedfordshire, Luton, England, and is completing his PhD Biology at Loma Linda University in the USA. Mr. Walemba’s area(s) of expertise include Nanomaterial Synthesis, Characterization and their Biological Application, and interests in Hemostasis, Platelet Biology, and Oral Microbiology. He comes with over 11 years of combined teaching and administrative experience in England, Thailand and the USA. Mr. Walemba’s academic interests circle around Cellular and Molecular Biology, and Biochemistry especially in the field of Hemostasis. His recent work is in the synthesis, characterization and application of biocompatible metallic nanoparticles for the treatment of pathogenic microbes of the human oral cavity. This research has also been applied to developing a model for penetration of substances into dentin, the development of long-term antibacterial dental materials, and development of novel antibiotics for prevention of tooth decay.
