Department of Anatomy

Introduction

 

The department of anatomy is the oldest and largest basic sciences department in Tehran University of Medical Sciences, established in 1935. The department involves three different major divisions of histology, embryology, and anatomy.

 

The department provides educational facilities such as dissection halls, hall of anatomic models, histology laboratories, histotechnique(s) laboratories for undergraduate students (Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Rehabilitation, Nursing, Midwifery, Hygiene etc.) and postgraduate students (Anatomy, Neuroscience and Reproductive Biology). This department is equipped with advanced and high-tech laboratories. There is a wide range of equipped labs from cell culture to molecular biology, histology, reproductive biology, anthropology, neuroscience and even dissection. Postgraduate students focus on a variety of different issues in their research. The important medical topics include stem cells, neuroscience, reproductive biology and tissue engineering. The research programs are multidisciplinary and contain studies from the single gene to the structure of the entire human body. The Department of Anatomy also provides services for other departments and research centers. These include histotechnique, histochemistry, cytochemistry, immunohistochemistry, immunocytochemistry, stereology, cell culture, IVF, microinjection, PCR and western blotting techniques. 

 

This department is now admitting foreign students, both in M.Sc. and Ph.D. levels from all around the world with full support for a great experience of working in a professional context. It also performs educational and research opportunities in all aforementioned fields with different levels of 16 academic staff (six professors, five associate professors, two assistant professors and three instructors) and more second-affiliated faculty member.

 

Academic members of the department are among the most knowledgeable and prolific scholars who have published many books in the fields of anatomy, embryology and histology. They are highly experienced in their specialized research fields.

 

Currently, 27 M.Sc. and 29 Ph.D. students of anatomy, and 35 Ph.D. students of reproductive biology are studying in this department. These students tutor undergraduate students with different methods such as educational clip shows, anatomy models, educational corpse studies, and surface anatomy and radiology.
