The Genomics, Molecular and Immunology Laboratories (GMI Labs) are diagnostic, research, and training facilities, focused on both infectious and non-infectious diseases or conditions. The GMI Laboratories provide laboratory services to all healthcare providers, including physicians, researchers, epidemiologists, students, and all health care policymakers, for the benefit of patients and the global community.
The GMI Laboratories are located at the Department of Immunology and Molecular Biology, School of Biomedical Sciences, under Makerere University College of Health Sciences (MakCHS). Structure wise, they constitute two Units; The Genomics and Molecular Unit and the Immunology Unit. The Genomics and Molecular Unit is located on the third floor (Level 3), Pathology-Microbiology Building, while the Immunology Unit is on first floor or level 1 School of Medicine building at Makerere University College of Health Sciences.
Access to the Genomics and Molecular Unit is through the Main Entrance located immediately near the elevator, with restricted access to the non-long-term staff and clients. As well, the clients and other stakeholders can access the Genomics and Molecular Biology Unit by use of stairs running from the ground floor of Pathology-Microbiology Building to the Third floor of the same building via the side where Makerere University Walter Reed Project Laboratories are located.
