About Us


Research Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology (RIBB) is non-governmental and non-profit making institution established in 2011 based on Kathmandu, Nepal. The birth of this institute took place from among a group of academician, professor, young scientists and researchers to work together in the field of Non-timber forest products (NTFPs) of Nepal. These NTFPs include organisms such as bacteria, fungi, mosses, lichens, higher plants and their products. Therefore, we focus our research activities in the following areas: Natural Product Chemistry Research, Pharmaceutical and Food Science Research and Bioenergy. Besides these areas, we also focus on how the local community of Nepal will be benefited by our research based product development projects.

Legal Entity:

RIBB is registered as a non-profit making and Non-Government Organization (NGO) under Kathmandu District Administrative Office (CDO) 2011 and Social Welfare Council (SWC) 2011 in the name of "Research Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology".
