Welcome to the online home of the Sheda Science and Technology Complex (SHESTCO), a multidisciplinary research and development establishment situated in the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria, 70 km from the capital city of Abuja. SHESTCO enables institutions as well as individual scientists to undertake a wide range of research and development activities. The multidisciplinary nature of the activities undertaken creates a truly conducive scientific environment,
 

which in turn enhances collaboration, giving rise to unique approaches to the solution of research and developmental problems.


Within the complex are three National Advanced Laboratories in the fields of biotechnology, chemistry and physics, equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. There is also a Nuclear Technology Centre, which houses a gamma irradiation plant. In a drive aimed at spearheading public-private sector partnership as the key to scientific as well as economic growth and development,

SHESTCO currently houses and collaborates with the Nigerian branch of the American-based company, Xechem Pharmaceuticals.

SHESTCO aims to become Nigeria's premier research and development institute. Towards achieving this goal, it has put in place adequate research facilities and continues to attract scientists and technologists from other national research and development institutions, universities, polytechnics and industry. It also warmly welcomes international scientists and technologists.
