Faculty of Pharmacy

Biochemistry Department

Biochemistry is a science that combines traditional chemistry and biology. It is based on the study of all chemical reactions and processes inside the bodies of living organisms in the laboratory with a focus on what happens from chemical processes inside cells in part in order to know their components, functions and the way they behave with each other.

The department mainly teaches the following biochemistry and clinical biochemistry courses at the undergraduate level:

1- Cell biology

2- Biochemistry 1

3- Biochemistry 2

4- Clinical biochemistry

5- Pharmacogenomics

6- Nutrition science

The objectives of the department are to familiarize the student with the chemical and biological reactions that occur in and outside living tissues, in addition to giving him the ability to understand and interpret many natural and pathological phenomena in the human body.

These goals are achieved by developing the student’s knowledge outcome by:

  • Introducing the vital interactions of the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins within the human body through biochemistry courses 1 and 2
  • Giving some information indicating new developments in science in modern fields such as genetic engineering and molecular biology through cell biology course.
  • Diagnosing diseases by semantics of blood through clinical biochemistry course.
  • Exemplifying the effect of genetic diversity on drug response in patients by linking gene expression or single nucleotide polymorphism with drug efficacy or toxicity through the pharmacogenomics course.
  • Explaining the relationship between Food and different body functions, and studying the cause of some nutritional factors in some diseases and medical conditions through the course of nutrition course.

The department is also interested in conducting advanced research in the basic and clinical areas of biochemistry that serve the community, including, for example, evaluating the role of biochemistry in discovering the effect of drugs on some diseases, and the genetic polymorphism associated with some diseases.

You can find our laboratories on the 4th Floor, Old Building and the 7th Floor, New Building
