University of Debrecen

A message from the chair

Welcome to the Department of Anatomy, Histology and Embryology at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Debrecen in Debrecen, Hungary. I hope you will find this web site to be a useful tool with the aid of which you can take a look at the life of the Department and learn about our research, teaching and other activities.

We are a collegial community of researchers and educators dedicated to providing a stimulating intellectual environment for our staff as well as for our undergraduate and graduate students.

We would like to transmit important conceptual and practical scientific knowledge and comprehension to our students concerning the structure of the human body, the organization principles of its cells, tissues, organs and organ systems, as well as the structure of the peripheral and central nervous system. In addition to presenting a global view about the architecture of the human body to our students from the level of molecules to the level of organ systems, we always teach morphological sciences with a strong emphasis on functional and clinical correlations. The Department’s commitment is to train and educate the next generation of doctors, health professionals and scientists who will be able to meet the challenges of the twenty first century in all areas of health care and life sciences.

The Department has always been and still is a research oriented unit of the University of Debrecen. Our research activities are based on a solid background established by our excellent and internationally recognized predecessors. Following their footsteps, we intend to conduct cutting edge research and explore new territories in the fields of cell and tissue biology, developmental biology and neurosciences. The individual state of the art laboratories within the Department benefit greatly from close interactions and collaborations with colleagues working close to each other on related topics. This enables a strong interdisciplinary approach, which is coupled to an atmosphere rich in enthusiasm, sense of free inquire and passion for scientific discovery.

This web site will guide you to a wide range of information about our faculty, scientific and educational activities. I wish you a good time while you are visiting our web site.
