Introduction

The Department of Biosciences was established in 2015 under the umbrella of Faculty of Veterinary Sciences. Department is at the core of basic disciplines of DVM; following are five basic sections of the department

  • Anatomy
  • Histology
  • Physiology
  • Pharmacology
  • Biochemistry
  • Statistics/Mathematics

Department is engaged in teaching basic courses of above-mentioned subjects to DVM students. Section of Anatomy and Histology covers the normal body structures and their association between body organs and systems. The Department is striving to provide/impart basic knowledge of these disciplines like structural and functional studies at macroscopic and microscopic level (Gross anatomy, Comparative Anatomy, Histology of normal tissues, Embryology and Cell Biology).

The Section of Physiology, Biochemistry & Pharmacology encompasses study of biochemical reactions, normal body functions, drug composition and properties, their synthesis, dosage design and effect of drugs on biological systems. The description of normal functions of the animal body ultimately providing a way to DVM students to formulate and prescribe drugs for the treatment of different maladies in veterinary practice/profession. Statistics/ Mathematics discipline teaches students about various statistical applications in Biomedical research.

The department has well established labs of each subjects decorated with all essential equipments for hands on training of undergraduate students.
