Teaching and supervising of the Department of Biochemistry



We carry out teaching of biochemistry for students of medicine, dentistry and pharmacy (according to programs adapted to these disciplines) in the Faculty of Medicine. The study courses include Organic and Bioorganic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Medical Biochemistry, Drinks and Health: Biomedical-medical Aspects, additional elective subjects and subjects for doctoral studies. We have published new original textbooks in 2019.


Supervising students

The Department of Biochemistry is focused on the research-based teaching at all levels of medical education (BSc, MSc, PhD). Our aim is to provide the students with basic knowledge of (medical) biochemistry, an understanding of the human metabolism and how this knowledge can be used for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
