Welcome

The research interests of our faculty span a broad spectrum of biochemistry ranging from cell and developmental biology to structural biology. The unifying theme defining us is an interest in biological processes at the molecular level. The department is home to state of the art facilities and instruments for X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, fluorescence microscopy, to name just a few. A collaborative and collegial atmosphere makes the Biochemistry Department an ideal place to do science and train for a wide variety of biomedical science careers.
