Anatomy is a science that deals with the organisation of biomolecules into cells, which in turn are organized to form tissues, organs and organ systems in animals and man. Knowledge of anatomy is of fundamental importance for biology and medicine, and contributes to the greater understanding of living and pathological processes.

The Department of Anatomy is responsible for teaching medical, paramedical as well as graduate students enrolled in the B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs. The Department engages in a wide range of basic and applied research including neuroscience (neuronal pathways, neurodegeneration mechanism of addiction), human and animal parasitology (liver flukes and blood flukes), reproductive biology of mammals (differentiation of germ cells, development of non-hormonal contraceptives), development and pathology of kidney, reproductive biotechnology (in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer, improvement of reproductive capacity of prawn, abalone and frog through hormonal manipulations).



The Department of Biochemistry offers international graduate programs at the Master and Ph.D. levels. Founded more than 40 years ago, the department has played a prominent role in the development of biochemical research and academic activities in Thailand.

There are currently 21 faculty members, many of whom have been recognized with international, national, and university awards. Research activities are always vigorously undertaken in our department and result in numerous publications in international journals every year. A large number of our student alumni have achieved their careers in the governmental sector as lecturers in universities or researchers in research institutes while others have chosen their careers in food, pharmarceutical, cosmetic, and chemical industries.



The Department of Biology seeks to promote profound understanding of living organisms and their environment, and a desire to use this understanding to improve our own long-term survival and welfare.

The undergraduate program covers a wide range of basic and applied training for students’ future careers in governmental and industrial organizations or future graduate study. Biology major students learn the fundamentals of living organisms, be it plant, animals or microorganisms, from biomolecules, cells, organisms and populations with special emphasis on interaction between organisms in the ecosystem, as well as on the effects of environmental changes and conservation biology.



Biotechnology is a science that exploits living organisms or components of living organisms to make useful products. Biotechnology promises to revolutionalize the agricultural, industrial, health and environmental sectors.

The Department offers a four year curriculum leading to a B.Sc. in Biotechnology. The program provides basic course work and also includes two months of industrial training and a senior research project on the application of biotechnology in areas relevant to national development.

The Department also undertakes active research programs that emphasize links with the Thai industrial sector. These research projects take advantage of our state-of-the-art capabilities in biotechnology areas that include genetic engineering, industrial biotechnology, food biotechnology, plant biotechnology and bioprocess engineering.




The Department of Chemistry offers a B.Sc. program with lecture courses being fully supported by laboratory classes. The Department is equipped with most of the major chemical instruments used in analysis and research.

The Department also offers six international M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs in Analytical Chemistry, Applied Analytical and Inorganic Chemistry, Chemical Physics, Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry and Polymer Science and Technology.



The Department of Mathematics offers a B.Sc. degree in Mathematics, an M.Sc. degree in Applied Mathematics, and a doctoral degree in Mathematics. The B.Sc. program aims at providing students with knowledge in both basic and advanced areas of mathematics. Undergraduates are also taught to apply their mathematical knowledge to other fields of interest.




The Department of Microbiology provides instruction both at M.Sc. and Ph.D levels. The Department places a strong emphasis on research and the programs offer a very wide range of expertise, covering the main areas of microbiology including immunology, bacteriology, virology, mycology and parasitology. We are proud of our Thai as well as foreign graduates who have gone on to careers in teaching and research at various universities in Thailand, Southeast Asian and African countries. Some have joined private industry, where there is an ever-increasing demand for qualified personnel with skill and expertise in these fields.





The Pathobiology Department offers graduate work leading to Master's Degree and Doctor of Philosophy degree in Pathobiology. In addition, the Department serves as the coordinator for the interdepartmental graduate program in Toxicology, and a joint program leading to the Ph.D.-M.D. Degree.

The curriculum is designed to prepare students for a professional career in research and teaching in pathobiological science, pathology and pathology-related fields. Emphasis is on the basic principles and the pathogenesis of disease processes. Graduates will be able to perform their own research as well as to teach in medical schools on the principles, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of human diseases.





The Department offers M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs in Pharmacology. Moreover, the department serves as a coordinator for the Interdepartmental curriculum, the Integrated Medical Curriculum and the Graduate Program in Toxicology.

Graduate programs in Pharmacology are designed to provide students with comprehensive knowledge in Pharmacology, which is achieved by emphasis on the carefully-planned teaching and the diversified interdisciplinary research. Furthermore, students are trained to be skilled in various experimental techniques and to execute the research projects in the fields they are interested in. As a result, they can further their experience by carrying out their own research and become accomplished scientists in the future.





The Department of Physics, Mahidol University was founded in 1967 as the Department of Physics & Mathematics. The Department of Mathematics separated from the Department of Physics in 1987. The Physics Department currently consists of approximately 30 faculty and support staff, 40 graduate students and 50 physics majors.

The Department of Physics offers B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Physics. In the undergraduate curriculum, an emphasis is put on both theoretical and experimental physics, and in the fourth year, there is a senior project with good access to quality research equipment.





Physiology is the study of the function of cells and organ systems, as well as the processes that control and regulate important properties of living systems. The Department of Physiology offers two graduate programs leading to M. Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Physiology and an M. Sc. degree in Physiology of Exercise.





A master of science program in Plant Science is aimed to produce scientists and researchers who are competent in the field of plant science, who are able to make use of knowledge and technology, and also can teach and convey their knowledge to future generations.

The program offers a wide range of graduate research topics such as plant breeding and surveys of Thai Flora, plant breeding and tissue culture techniques of economic crops, chromosome studies for plant taxonomy, mechanism and uses of plant gene expression and regulation, plant genetic resource conversation, ethonobotany, standardization of Thai medicinal plants, medicinal plant database, and bitechnology for quality improvement of medicinal plant raw meterial.
