Department of Clinical Biochemistry was nitially established in 1967 at Pharmacy School of MUI. All basic and clinical biochemistry and related courses in the whole university are presented and taught by the faculty members of the biochemistry department. The Department of Clinical Biochemistry is also responsible for educating the postgraduate courses as well as conducting different sort of research projects. For the first time in 1973 and 1989, the MSc degree and Ph.D. degree  courses for clinical biochemistry were presented by the department, respectively. The department contributes to diagnosis and control of patient treatment by measuring the concentration of relevant molecules in body fluids (blood, urine, spinal fluid) and by examining structural defects in the molecules. The latter is accomplished through analysis of, for example, DNA and protein structures.
