Address by the Head of the Department

Peace be upon you, and God’s mercy and blessings.
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, “And say, ‘Do [as you will], for Allah will see your deeds, and [so, will] His Messenger and the believers. And you will be returned to the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, and He will inform you about what you used to do.’” Truly, God is the Greatest. “Knowledge” is our noble goal, by which nations advance and flourish. It is the honor that God Almighty has bestowed upon the children of Adam, making it a means for elevation and progress. Therefore, as we begin a new academic year, we must emphasize the continuation of our scientific contribution to achieve our aspirations and to ensure the scientific journey in the department continues within the plans and directives of the esteemed College of Veterinary Medicine Council, in alignment with the various needs of society and keeping pace with scientific and practical developments under the current exceptional circumstances. We are determined to strive for the distinction of our department and our esteemed college, especially after the achievements of the Department of Microbiology in its scientific journey in the past years. This is what we hope to enhance and develop during the current academic year, having laid out this plan and relying on God Almighty to implement it in a way that fulfills our ambitions.
May God grant everyone success in serving our beloved country.
