At DDTCOM, we are serious about good science and effective products as we strongly believe in sustainability and social responsibility. Our research team of distinguished doctors, scientists and herbal experts are leaders in their fields, and their innovative methods and extensive research result in effective natural product that deliver key benefits using indigenous plants. RIPD is about discovery. It’s about having an idea and finding the right environment in which to explore that idea. DDTCOM takes great pride in our ability to provide supportive environments for the exploration of all types of ideas; and with a lot of money invested in research expenditures each year, and a prominent research center, DDTCOM continues to be one of the top idea-incubators in the nation.



Welcome, take a peek into the professional activities of our Research, Innovation and Product Development (RIPD) team – we are very proud of the work they do.

RIPD and the Scholar/Student

DDT College of Medicine provides unprecedented opportunities for scholars and students to explore the frontiers of their fields. Our degrees programs provide unique research opportunities in all areas related to medicine. All the research held at DDTCOM is focused in improving the quality of life for the benefit of national, regional and international communities. RIPD is guided by the schools Vision, to be the leading innovative university in modern medicine and research globally. The students/scholars have state of the art equipment in fully equipped laboratories and well qualified scientists who will be guiding them in pursuit of their (student) research interests.
As the RIPD Director has stipulated to the public in his speech at the 2017 White Coat Ceremony, we are open for collaborations through our Research Mentorship Clinic. The Clinic has been gaining popularity with our local herbalist/traditional doctors who have been forthcoming with indigenous knowledge.
