In Heiroglyphics, the sign Per (incomplete rectangular shape) used to refer to a place or a house. Hence, the word Pharaoh was originated from “Per-3a” meaning the big house. Egyptian considered the library or as they called it “Per-Ankh” as the house of life. Because to them knowledge is the key of life is through understanding the world we live in. The conceptual design of our logo is simply adding a DNA double helix to Per Ankh symbolising our stand as the house of biological sciences research.
