The discipline of anatomy organises basic education in macroscopic human anatomy, microscopic human anatomy, or histology, and cell biology for students of medicine and dentistry, as well as students in the Master’s Degree Programme in Translational Medicine in their first and second year of studies.
The Department of Anatomy conducts basic research in neurobiology and cell biology (research areas include membrane biology, as well as the mechanisms of the development of the nervous system and neurotransmission). In addition, we are developing and utilising genetically modified cellular and animal models and various imaging methods. The Department organises postgraduate research education for doctoral students and post-doctoral education for researchers who have completed their doctoral degree. The Department houses the Biomedicum Imaging Unit BIU, the Zebrafish Unit and the Tissue Preparation and Histochemistry Unit.
