Biochemistry Laboratory

Professor - Director: G. Koliakos

Purpose
The object of the Biochemistry Laboratory is to support patients in clinics and outpatient medical cases with biochemical tests and also to train resident medical doctors in Biopathology on Clinical Biochemistry (on a theoretical and practical basis). Also the laboratory offers a practical and theoretical pursuit of medical students who choose courses in clinical Biochemistry. Beyond the objectives of the workshop, the aim is to have the participation of scientists in research projects as to promote and publicize new methods and tests in clinical biochemistry.
