Biochemistry majors and those interested in the Biochemistry major or minor: Join us on Friday, October 28th from 2-3 pm in Mendel G90 for a Meet & Greet. Catch up with your fellow biochemistry students and faculty. (there will be food, too!)
The biochemistry program is designed for students who are interested in life at the molecular level. In our program, you will study the chemical processes involved in DNA replication, transcription, and translation. The structure of biomacromolecules and the structural implications on cellular processes will also be emphasized.
Most of the biochemistry faculty use their biochemistry training to understand disease at the molecular level, including breast cancer, lung cancer, African sleeping sickness, and pain management. Biochemistry also supports the studies of students majoring in the chemistry and life-sciences by offering introductory courses for students interested in medicine or the allied health fields.
