Department of Biochemistry

The Department of Biochemistry was established in 1988. It was incorporated in the Department of Preclinical Studies prior to that. The preclinical studies in addition to Biochemistry included also Physiology, Anatomy and Pharmacology. Later, the last was joined to the Department of Veterinary Medicine, Pharmacology and Toxicology. Anatomy was separated as an independent department, and after a while the same thing happened to physiology and Biochemistry. The establishment of the Department of Biochemistry was due to the fact that biochemistry has advanced faster, and has assumed a more central role in biological research.
