Administrative history

The department of anatomy was established in 1883 and in 1996 changed its name to the department of human anatomy and cell science.

The Department of Human Anatomy and Cell Science is an essential component for the teaching of educational programs in (but not limited to) the Faculties of Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy and Medical Rehabilitation. Human Anatomy is complementary to the basic medical sciences providing a full spectrum of medical knowledge to future generations of medical health professionals using accredited research and teaching techniques.

Human Anatomy provides expertise in many disciplines and sub-disciplines; Human Anatomy is a foundation of medical training and encourages young individuals to pursue a career in Human Anatomy research and teaching. The Human Anatomy Department recognizes teaching and research as equally important, and encourages and supports the introduction of innovative educational programs delivered to the faculties and the University in a collaborative, multi-disciplinary format.

The Department consists of faculty members, and cross-appointed faculty members each of which are experts in one or more sub-disciplines of anatomy. Quality teaching programs are enriched by scholarly pursuits of our department members who are engaged in research of the highest quality in the following areas: cardiovascular science, cancer biology and neurosciences. Graduate students are provided with the opportunity to use a variety of contemporary techniques such as: autoradiography, light and electron microscopy. 3D imaging, morphometrics, tissue culture and transplantation. immunocytochemistry, in situ hybridization, radioimmunoassay, electrophoresis , transgenics, molecular biology, magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy.
