We build upon foundational coursework in biology and chemistry to examine the structure, properties, and functions of molecules that make up living systems.

A Broad and Vibrant Discipline

We are driven to understand how biological and chemical principles play out in living systems. We shed light on cellular events that occur during normal and disease processes, ultimately yielding fundamentally important knowledge that empowers us to predict, alter and harness the chemistry of living systems.

The Faculty and Staff of the Biochemistry Program stand with Black Lives Matter. We welcome diversity in all of its forms.
