  • Environmental Sciences Research Center (Home Page)
    • Environmental Sciences Research Center (ESRC) was established as a "fundamental research" division of the ICST in 2001. ESRC has four research departments including Biotechnology, Ecology, Biodiversity and Environment. The aim here is to conduct research in different fields of environmental science with the objective of reducing the adverse effects of technological developments on environment; and development of methods that help to utilize natural resources more appropriately for a sustained development. Detailed aims and objectives are included in department’s homepage. The Environmental Sciences Research Institute has well equipped laboratories and welcomes collaborative efforts with other research centers and universities. The Fourth National Biotechnology Congress in 2005, the Second National Cell and Molecular Biology in 2008 and the First National Meeting on Herpetology in 2009 were held by the Environmental Sciences Research Institute. In addition, several workshops on stem cell culture, PCR, real-time PCR and research methods in biological sciences have also been held by ESRC.

ERC received an agreement in principle for its activities from Iran’s Ministry of Science, Research and Technology in August 2005.
  • Information Technology Research Center (Home Page)
    • Activities of this group are towards reaching Center's goals on development of the science and technology in field of Information Technology (IT). These activities are divided into two areas of research and higher education while giving priority to research along the following axioms: Carrying out fundamental, applied, and developing research efforts related to IT, and obtaining advanced technologies in this field. Offering educational workshops, scientific seminars, and research courses. Instrumentation and maintenance of research laboratories in regards to IT; and consultation services to research centers, universities and industrial centers.
