The research projects in the Division of Anatomy, Embryology, and Histology consist of reproductive biology, chemical substances such as synthetic drugs on reproduction, medicinal plants, and their active substances in reproduction.

The research projects in the Division of Biochemistry include gene expression in parasites and oxidative stress at cellular level.

The research projects in the Division of Physiology include physiology of histaminergic system, PAIN, epilepsy, diabetes, memory and learning, feeding behavior, heart physiology, Parkinson disease, and the effects of medicinal plants’ biologically active substances on pain.

The research projects in the Division of pharmacology and Toxicology consist of the effects of toxins on biological systems in the body and the impacts of medicinal plants and their active substances on the prevention of toxin function
