The Department aims to enhance understanding of chemical structures and processes that constitute the basis of  health and disease.

  • The teaching of Biochemistry focusses on the structure and function of cellular components and bio-molecules as well as integrates the application of this knowledge in a clinical scenario.
  • This is essential to understand the complex biochemical interactions within the human body both in health and disease.
