The Aklilu Lemma Institute of Pathobiology (ALIPB), formerly known as the Institute of Pathobiology, was established by the late Professor Aklilu Lemma in 1966 under the Addis Ababa University (AAU), then Haile Selassie I University, with the objective of conducting biomedical research on major tropical and infectious diseases. Since May 2005, the Institute has been renamed after its founder, Professor Aklilu Lemma. ALIPB has existed for about four decades as a research Institute of AAU, addressing important research issues of public health and veterinary importance.

The Institute evolved from the Parasitology Research Unit, which was organized earlier under the Faculty of Medicine and later under the Faculty of Science to become a stand-alone research and postgraduate training Institute. Given its long years of experience, the Institute has been striving to be the center of excellence in biomedical research for diseases of both public health and veterinary importance. Its long-standing collaboration with national and international institutions in areas of mutual interest and the service it renders to the community are exemplary of its activities.

Briefly, the Institute carries-out considerable research in tropical and infectious diseases and runs postgraduate programs that have been initiated according to its previous strategic plan. Currently, ALIPB has PhD and MSc students under the Tropical and Infectious Diseases (TRID) programs. In addition, the Institute has the task of leading the academic/research and collaborative short-term training of visiting students from public and private health academia in the country, provides facilities and supervision to postgraduate and DVM/undergraduate research undertakings that are attached to the institute. It also renders health development services to the community as well as consultancy services.

Aklilu Lemma Institute of Pathobiology, following the recent reforms made across the university, is established as a stand-alone research institute focusing on biomedical research, under the Office of the Vice President for Research and Technology Transfer. Presently, the Institute is under-going a process of reorganization and this document presents a brief profile of researches and related activities at ALIPB.
