Our graduate program is multidisciplinary, integrating biochemistry, biophysics, molecular biology, structural biology, cell biology, and genetics, along with organic, inorganic, and analytical chemistry, to enable you to study a diverse set of biological problems. We offer a biochemistry doctoral degree and graduate minors in multiple fields of study pertaining to your dissertation research.
Our curriculum is topical. We provide a strong foundation in biochemistry based on a considerable breadth of study, including opportunities for specialization and success in the research laboratory. Specialization is achieved in the context of integrated research opportunities that align with subgroups of core faculty in these areas: Genome Biochemistry, Supramolecular Complexes, and Chemical and Physical Biology.
Our faculty research interests span nearly all aspects of the structure, function, and dynamics of proteins, nucleic acids, and other biomolecules, providing many opportunities for you to select an area of specialization.
