Department of Anatomy Community home page

Anatomy is a science that deals with the organisation of biomolecules into cells, which in turn are organized to form tissues, organs and organ systems in animals and man. Knowledge of anatomy is of fundamental importance for biology and medicine, and contributes to the greater understanding of living and pathological processes. The Department of Anatomy is responsible for teaching medical, paramedical as well as graduate students enrolled in the B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs. The Department engages in a wide range of basic and applied research including neuroscience (neuronal pathways, neurodegeneration mechanism of addiction), human and animal parasitology (liver flukes and blood flukes), reproductive biology of mammals (differentiation of germ cells, development of non-hormonal contraceptives), development and pathology of kidney, reproductive biotechnology (in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer, improvement of reproductive capacity of prawn, abalone and frog through hormonal manipulations).
