Department of Basic Sciences

The Department of Basic Sciences at the Faculty of Veterinary Sciences benefits from a large number of academics who are active in teaching and productive in research in different fields such as Biochemistry Physiology, Pharmacology, Anatomy, Histology, Embryology, Genetics and Toxicology. The Fundamentals of structure and function of animals and human beings are comparatively studied in these fields from different perspectives such as microscopic and macroscopic, molecular, and cellular, histologic, and organismal biology. These courses provide theoretical and experimental foundations for learning physiology, different diseases, clinical and experimental courses. The Department of Basic Sciences has a number of laboratories for Biochemistry, Physiology, Pharmacology, Toxicology and Anatomy. These labs are used for teaching and research projects. Various types of research techniques are used in these labs.

Based on its teaching and research capacities this department has started offering various postgraduate programs including the Ph.D. program for Comparative Histology since 2009, the Master’s program for Physiology since 2010, the Ph.D. program for Physiology, the Master’s program for Clinical Biochemistry since 2012, and the Master’s program for Histology since 2013.
