Department of Genetics

Activities related to the field of medical genetics began in Mashhad University of Medical Sciences in the form of a cytogenetic research plan and in 1985 led to establishment of a medical genetics laboratory by Dr. Mohammad Hassanzadeh Nazarabadi in the medical school. Until 1995, this laboratory continued to provide diagnostic services as it did before; however, since then, the medical genetics department was established in the anatomy department following the laboratory expansion. In 2000, the human genetics department was established in Bu Ali research center by Dr. Mohammad Reza Abbas Zadegan and managed to officially obtain the license for prenatal diagnosis of thalassemia from the Ministry of Health, Treatment and Medical Education and began to work in this area; following these, with new personnel joined, the medical genetics department started to work independently in 2009.
