Research Field: 

 Nearly 90% of researches in related to Medical Parasitology and Mycology have been conducted in one way or another within this department. All endemic and non-endemic parasitic and fungal diseases have been surveyed through this long period of activity. In addition to collaboration with all departments in Iran, many students have had joint projects with foreigner countries. Basically a part of thesis is conducted within overseas countries as a period of PhD course. About 2200 English papers, 1900 Persian papers and 30 books have been release by the members of the department. This data embraces only the parasitic diseases which have not included the mycological papers. Nearly all important parasites and fungal agents have been surveyed in terms of diagnosis, genotype, treatment, epidemiology, etc
