Basic Veterinary Sciences




General Description

Veterinary anatomy is a branch of science concerned with the bodily structure of animals. The primary goal of our department is to teach students about the body and the anatomical structures of animals.






Our department presents a dissecting room, cadaver preparation room, cold storage room, bone maceration room, and a research laboratory. A stereo microscope attached with a digital camera is used for subgross studies.






We use systematic and topographic methods in anatomy courses. Anatomy-I course teaches basic anatomical terminology, locomotor system and, nervous system. Anatomy-II course teaches the shape, structure, and normal position of internal organs, as well as the morphological characteristics of circulatory system organs and sense organs. Finally, students learn fundamental anatomical structures for clinical interventions through the Topographic Anatomy course.






Research Interests

The majority of our research focuses on the anatomies of laboratory and wild animals. Teratology, anatomical development from embryo to adult, and racial differences between species are also of interest to our research. We frequently use techniques such as corrosion cast, lymphography, angiography, and arthrography in our studies.

General Description

Biochemistry is a branch of biological sciences concerned with the chemical and physico-chemical processes and substances which occur within living organisms. We aim to provide basic and clinical biochemistry knowledge to veterinary candidates by following the latest developments in science and technology and contribute them to be prepared for further clinical veterinary sciences. We also provide routine clinical biochemistry laboratory services and to search for solutions of livestock problems in the region. There is a practice laboratory for students and a research laboratory present in our department.

Biochemistry-I (1st semester), Biochemistry-II (2nd semester), Clinical Biochemistry and Haemotology (9th semester) and Diagnostic Laboratory Methods (10th semester) courses are given to undergraduate students.


Research Interests

Antioxidative metabolism, acute phase proteins, neurosteroids, biochemistry of nervous system, glycoproteins, electrophoretic analysis, western blot studies, biochemistry of bees, biochemistry analysis of honey, heavy metal analysis are some of our research topics.

General Description

Physiology is a branch of biological sciences that deals with the normal functions of living organisms and their parts. Physiology-I course is given 2nd semester and main objectives of this course are to teach students how nervous, sensory, muscle, blood, heart, circulation and respiratory system and cell physiology works. The second course (Phsiology-II), which is given in 3rd semester, covers the physiology of digestive and endocrine system, reproduction and lactation, body fluids, metabolism and ambient temperature adaptation. A research laboratory located in our department both for students and scientific studies.



Research Interests

Hematological parameters and factors that affect hematological parameters, reproductive physiology in farm animals, hormones related to reproduction are some of our research topics.

General Description

Histology&Embryology is a branch of biological sciences deals with the study of tissues and cells and with the formation, development, structure, and functional activities of embryos.

Histology-I (1st semester), Histology-II (2nd semester) and Embryology (2nd semester) courses are given to undergraduate students.
