Faculty of Biological Sciences
Under the supervision of Basic Sciences Faculty, Department of Biology, founded in 1983, commenced its educational activities alongside three Departments of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. Biology Teacher Training was the first program offered by this Department. After the development of three independent faculties in 2014, the department of Biology, renamed Faculty of Biological Sciences, commenced its independent programs. Currently, the Faculty comprises three Departments of Botany and Plant Sciences, Biotechnology, and Microbiology and offers fields of Microbial Biotechnology and Microbiology, Plant Sciences (with branches of Physiology and Systematic Ecology), Biochemistry, and Biophysics.
Faculty members collaborate actively with Iranian Biology Society, Iranian Society of Weed Science, and The Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World (OWSD). The faculty is ready to financially support most of higher education research projects which are based on students’ theses and dissertations.
