The faculty of biology is one of nine faculties at Kharazmi University which is the oldest university of Iran. Biological Sciences is an exciting and rapidly developing subject area which has undergone tremendous expansion in recent years. Our faculty is able to offer a whole range of degrees in the areas of cell & molecular biology, animal biology and plant biology. Our students are provided with different labs which have modern equipment .The faculty is also honored to have Professor Shahrbanoo Oryan as the head of faculty who is a biology enduring figure. Furthermore Apart from having the facilities, one of the top features of this university is having top professors in country's large which they are the concessionary of this university.


History
Technically the crew of biology faculty has started his work since 1919.The faculty has been attempting to recruit students for master and PHD since 1998 & 1994. The Karaj branch was established in 1974 which is provided for bachelor students
