The anatomy lab is where medical schools’ students learn to dissect cadavers to discover the inner workings of the human body.  Anatomy is fundamental to the study of medicine. Anatomy lab experience is key to the knowledge of the human body structure and its variabilities. It gives a wider perspective compared to anatomy books.



The Immunology Laboratory is responsible for laboratory testing and clinical consultation in several broad areas including the evaluation of autoimmune disease, immunodeficiency, immunoproliferative disorders, and allergy, as well as having responsibility for some aspects of infectious disease serology. 


The Microbiology laboratory offers comprehensive testing for the diagnosis of infectious diseases. Infectious disease may be acute or chronic and may be caused by a variety of microorganisms that may include bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. 

The lab is specialized in the diagnostic methods for the detection and testing of microbial pathogens in the areas of: antimicrobial susceptibility, bacteriology, molecular methods, mycology, mycobacteriology, parasitology and virology.



Histopathology is the diagnosis and study of diseases of the tissues, and involves examining tissues and/or cells under a microscope. Histopathology lab is very important for the general medical education. Histopathology (or histology) involves the examination of sampled whole tissues under the microscope. Three main types of specimen are received by the pathology laboratory.

  1. Larger specimens include whole organs or parts thereof, which are removed during surgical operations. Examples include a uterus after a hysterectomy, the large bowel after a colectomy or tonsils after a tonsillectomy.
  1. Pieces of tissue rather than whole organs are removed as biopsies, which often require smaller surgical procedures that can be performed whilst the patient is still awake but sedated. Biopsies include excision biopsies, in which tissue is removed with a scalpel (e.g. a skin excision for a suspicious mole) or a core biopsy, in which a needle is inserted into a suspicious mass to remove a slither or core of tissue that can be examined under the microscope (e.g. to investigate a breast lump).
  2. Fluid and very small pieces of tissue (individual cells rather than groups of cells, e.g. within fluid from around the lung) can be obtained via a fine needle aspiration (FNA). This is performed using a thinner needle than that used in a core biopsy, but with a similar technique. This type of material is usually liquid rather than solid, and is submitted for cytology rather than histology (see Cytopathology).


The laboratory provides students with opportunities to practice common methods in clinics such as Electrocardiography (ECG), Electroencephalography (EEG), Electromyography (EMG), phonocardiography, galvanized skin response and also procedural skills on respiratory and hearing tests, reflexes and heart sounds associated with the core course.

Equipment available in the physiology lab enables faculty and students to conduct research.

The research deals with the experimental exploration of human physiology in physical activity, exercise, extreme environments, and chronic disease.

The goals of this research is to evaluate: 

  • mechanisms of pathophysiology in chronic disease
  • exercise as medicine to prevent, diagnose, and treat chronic disease
  • mechanisms of physiological adaptation to exercise and extreme environments; and
  • the physiological impact of physical activity

The outcome of these studies are used to guide therapeutic interventions, as well as training and physical activity recommendations for people across the human spectrum.



The Biochemistry lab enables students to get acquainted with the rapid expanding area of medical biochemistry. Biochemistry itself is the science of the living matter. In the lab, students study biochemical reactions that occur at the molecular level within living organisms. Biomedical techniques are applied to human health and disease. The scope of medical biochemistry encompasses the chemical components of the human body, the major chemical processes in the human body, nutrition and mineral metabolism, molecular genetics, heredity and genomics. 


The skills lab is very important for medical students’ clinical skills development.

It is an educational facility that have the potential to benefit medical school students and staff. it provides a safe and protected environment in which the learner can practice clinical skills before using them in real clinical settings. skills laboratories help to ensure that all students acquire the necessary techniques and are properly assessed before practicing on real patients. In addition, they support the acquisition, maintenance and enhancement of the clinical skills of students in the healthcare profession
