Royan center for biotechnology was established in 2004 in a rented building as the “cell research center” by Dr. Saied Kazemi Ashtiani and Dr. Mohammad Hossein Nasr Esfahani. Even before that, there were some temporary research activities in Isfahan Infertility Center. Following the expansion of research activities, a three-floor of less than 600 hundred square meters was purchased by Royan Research department. Shortly, due to the lack of space for research on livestock, a land of 22500 meter was brought in khorasgan and buildings of research, animal Nest, veterinary clinic and livestock shed with infrastructure of 4000 square meters.
Royan Biotechnology research center runs many research activities in stem cells, andrology, genetics, embryology, nanotechnology, tissue engineering and Recombinant proteins. It also has held mor than 60 national and international training courses. As located in the historical Isfahan, this center is potentially one of the most attractive Edu-tourism centers. Therefore, the first Edu tourism course was jointly held in Royan Education Center and Royan Biotechnology-Isfahan in August 2019 with many good impressions from university students and researchers.
