The Association of Medical Laboratory Science and Technology students of the University of Nairobi was set up in 2012 after the introduction of BSc (Medical Laboratory Science and Technology) as a course in the university of Nairobi. The association has made great milestones in development and the achievement of its purpose within and without the university fraternity.

At its institution, this was the driving statement and force; “We, The University of Nairobi Medical Laboratory Science and Technology students, recognizing the need for skilled and well-trained medical laboratory scientists, do in our pursuit of academic excellence declare the formation of Association of Medical Laboratory Science and Technology students of the University of Nairobi. The association hereby referred to as AMELSTUN, is non-political and shall be governed in accordance with the provisions made in this constitution, provisions of the University of Nairobi, University of Nairobi Act and the Kenyan constitution.”

Thus far the association has lived the zeal of the pioneers and advanced ahead with even greater prospects of advancement with the increasing popularity of Laboratory Medicine as a discipline.


Message from the Chairman



The world is rapidly shifting from an era of clinical diagnosis and treatment of diseases to emphasis on and appreciation of evidence-based medicine. With these changes, Laboratory Medicine stands strategically at the center of giving proof for the ailments that are encountered in hospital settings. Moreover, robust research has catapulted medicine to higher levels as regards the understanding of diseases, and the treatment thereof. All these are inseparably pegged on the quality of work done in the laboratories.

As young professionals hoping to enter the field and continue the good work, we appreciate the work of our predecessors and mentors. Additionally, it is a fact that the world is not in need of men of simply head knowledge, these are already in plenty. However, as my favorite author puts it, “The greatest want of the world is the want of men—men who will not be bought or sold, men who in their inmost souls are true and honest, men who do not fear to call sin by its right name, men whose conscience is as true to duty as the needle to the pole, men who will stand for the right though the heavens fall.” Such is the character that I desire to inspire, by example, in those I lead in this position even as we grow into professionals who are aware of whatever we are doing and do it to the best of our abilities.
