About

DSC_1927Welcome to The Department of Biochemistry at Ankara University, Faculty of Pharmacy. Our Department provides training since the Faculty of Pharmacy founded. We are a highly interactive group of faculty with diverse research interests in biochemistry, diabetes related complications, cancer, enzyme activity and inhibition studies; signal transduction, oxidative stress, nitric oxide-dependent pathways, aldose reductase enzyme activity and related pathways. We use different kinds of experimental systems to address the cellular and molecular mechanisms of biological processes, particularly those that relate broadly to human disease.

We are committed to the education of undergraduate and graduate students. Our undergraduate courses include Biochemistry, Clinical Biochemistry, Nutritional Biochemistry, Antioxidants and Free Radicals, Biochemical Basis of Diseases.

The emphasis of our graduate program is on comprehensive research training in our laboratories and also several courses are given about advanced biochemistry, metabolism, signalling patways, hormones, proteins, lipoproteins, biochemical calculations. Graduate students have joined our active research labs through several programs.
