Department of Biochemistry
Towards Better Understanding of Life at Molecular Level.
To educate students in the theory and practice of medical biochemistry and molecular biology.
Biochemistry is science devoted to help understanding the molecular mechanisms by which living organisms carry out their many functions. Precise understanding of mechanisms underlying both normal physiology and disease states is fundamental for rational approaches to medicine. The department provides a rich educational environment to help students develop their creative potential and to prepare them for a successful future career in medicine and research. Instructional methods and study material through all courses undertaken by the department are selected to help developing independent creative thinking, as well as broad knowledge and technical skills. The faculty members at the department are dedicated to discover and transfer knowledge about the molecular basis of life through basic biomedical and cross-disciplinary research, teaching and training.
