Cell and molecular Biology is the first Department in Biology in Semnan University, funded in 2011.  Faculty full-time members of the Department are: Shamsozoha Abolmaali, Molecular Biologist, Mehdi Golestaninasab, Zoologist, and Farshid Parvini, Geneticist. Our part-time faculty are Shakiba Darvishalipour-astaneh, Microbiologist (from Dep. of Biotechnology in Semnan University) and Fatemeh Rabizadeh, Plant Ecologist, among several other skilled lecturers.

Our main research areas are Bio-active molecules and their impact on the cancers as carcinogenic compound or anticancer agents along with antibiotics taken from extreme localities in nearby deserts. We are also interested in some other research areas, including, deafness and population genetics, host-parasites ecology and systematics, and herbal drugs do's and don'ts.

The Department of Cell and Molecular Biology offers a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB). With teaching and research activities our students will be provided with biochemistry, cell biology, microbiology, molecular biology, and molecular genetics courses, and develop high levels of the laboratory and theoretical skills. It’s notable that more than one-third of the courses are hold practically and experimentally. Thanks to such scrupulosity, preciseness, and meticulousness efforts, our graduates are mostly study at the graduate courses, or have successfully employed in the relevant careers.

We proud of our student achieving  valuable results in the annual National Olympiad of Biology for undergraduate students, which prominently discerned our progress among other undergraduate programs have been established recently at Semnan University.
